Look through the window and imagine you see this:
Darkness is coming, a sliver of moon is creeping up from behind the freshly powdered mountains. The temperature has dropped, the children are in bed and the week is closing.

Your husband left you four months ago, and you are barely starting to recover from the shock. He has come to see your children, and you ended up spending a good afternoon together….

You two never had time to travel when you were together because you got pregnant 6 months into your relationship, and you already had a small child anyway…
You had been warned by wiser, well-meaning people not to hope, but you still hoped because you just cannot accept that the person you loved is capable of doing this to you.
