Excerpt from Snow…
January stood frozen, in front of her New York window flat. She was alone. It seemed as if she had been alone forever, although it had only been seven days since he left.
She wondered if he would return or leave her to deal with her devastating news alone. She hoped he would come back, but by the look upon his face and the hateful words he had spoken, she wasn’t so sure.
Actually, she wasn’t so sure of anything anymore. The disease had left her numb and afraid.
She wasn’t thinking about herself anymore, as her gaze caught something magical, down on the street below her expensive Brownstone. She was on the fifth floor of her apartment flat, but her eyesight was still good, thank goodness she still had that.
She had to smile. Young love was wonderful, she thought.
She vividly remembered when she and Jack had been so young and naive in love. She had loved him more than life itself back then.
“What happened to us?” She said out loud, even though she was the only one in the room.
The echo of the silence sharply snapped back at her. Relentless, she let the tears fall from her face, no longer caring about her make-up smearing or how she looked.
“What was the point?” She thought.
