Chapter 8

Princess was distraught. How could her love, her marriage, her family have come to this? What was she to do? How would Lou-Lou fare with a set of parents who couldn’t get their act together? Two people who in some ways were so mature and responsible and in other ways so….not.

Princess pondered and cried and fretted and yearned for Punk. The Punk she loved. The father of her child. The man who loved her. How did they drift so far apart? Would they ever find their way back?? Did Punk even love her? She knew he loved Lou-Lou – that was never in doubt. But did her love her? Did he overwhelmingly, heart-stoppingly, never want to be without you, life cannot go on without you, love you so much it hurts, LOVE HER?

Because their time apart made her realize that she felt that way about him.

She would look to the future and see them together – old and gray, surrounded by the family they had created, holding hands and smiling at each other.

That’s when she knew. There was no future without him. Her heart was broken, but she wasn’t ready to give up. She needed some time to think and regroup and plan what to say, what to do.

After they had been apart for several days, the doorbell rang.

And it was him……
