Tonight, Lauren and Judy wanted to take Kate and Sarah out for dinner. Kate suggested a family restaurant near the mall. During dinner, Lauren told Kate about the box of things for Sarah. Kate thanked her and said she could get it tonight when she drove them over for the night. Kate was taking them to a hotel in the area after they retrieved their suitcases from John’s now empty and clean apartment. “I’ll give you my copy of his key,” she pulled it out of her purse and took it off the ring.
Lauren took it with a thoughtful look. “Thanks, Kate. I’m sorry things ended like they did. You never know what life is going to bring.”
Kate nodded, trying to swallow the lump in her throat. She didn’t feel like saying anything, so she didn’t.
Sarah chatted as usual with the two ladies visiting them, but Kate was pretty quiet. She was closing a chapter in her life she wasn’t quite done with.
Until next time,
