Continued from Marriage Counseling…
It was never my house; I suppose I don’t miss it. But to be locked out with only the clothes on my back, the change in my purse, seems cruel.

Up Next: Part 7 (Conclusion) – Caught in the Wind
The challenge is to blog every other day June 17 through June 30, using the theme or prompts as inspiration.
The theme is seven, so I’m posting a series of seven stories at seventy-seven words each. Each day also has a prompt based on a famous book title, and while I’ve unfortunately never read any of the books listed, I think I can work with the funny play on words.
Today’s prompt is: Suns and Lovers
I hope you enjoyed this quick short-short, and be sure to come back on Friday for the final chapter!
