Back to childhood


The much dreaded day was here. Divorce granted. Samantha let out a sigh as she said the words in her head, divorcee. The much dreaded word, which was still a stigma in her so called 'forward' society, it was still something that was frowned upon. 

Her packed bags were stowed in her already crammed car. She had no other choice, but to go back to her parents' place. When she entered her home, after all these years, it was not what she had expected. Her room, intact. Fingering the frayed pink bedspread, she smiled. She was finally home. 

Linking this to Write Tribe's 100 Words on Saturday.
