Friday 5/29/09 - "THE BOX - ACTION"
No! Wait! Before she dials, she'll pour a drink. She thinks about how she's been hiding the scars and bruises and drinking takes the pain away.
The drinking worries her. She'll ask Lucy to take her to another meeting.
She dials, it's ringing, and then she hears, "Hello, abuse hotline. Can I help you?"
Note: The following was LAST WEEK's
"55 Flash Fiction Friday"
"THE BOX - HOPE IS COMING"
She knows she's ready to call as she picks up the phone.
He threatened if she seeks help he'll file for divorce.
She's thinking about this in a new way.
She felt hope in that room with Lucy and that's a win.
Getting better would be a win. She feels something new, perhaps it's courage.
