Finish the story begins with: “Arriving at the beach, she reflected on her life.”
Arriving at the beach she reflected on her life as it was now, trying to put the past back where it belonged, in the past. It had been a year and a half for her to get to this stage, hard work, tough decisions and no going back once those decisions had been made. Her family didn't understand. Her friends didn’t understand. Her husband certainly hadn't understood that he was the main problem. He didn't see why his actions affected their relationship. He didn't see why she would not take second place. He would not accept responsibility for the breakdown of their relationship.
She listened to the rhythmic sound of the waves gently breaking against the rocks, lulling her senses in to a relaxed frame of mind. Two weeks of bliss. Two weeks she had promised herself to recharge her batteries before the onslaught of the modern world caught up with her again.
