I had been mum’s only carer and now, well, that would change. During a medical examination six months earlier my world had been turned upside down. The news had shocked everyone.
“You can go now mum. I’ll see you again when…”
Mum walked out before I could finish. She was crying.
I closed my eyes for the last time picturing flowers, lights. A voice said, “Let’s go.”
It was just as people had said it would be. And why not? I’d married the town’s most eligible bachelor.
