“What do you think! Teddy used to bring me here. He said it was a spot nobody knew about and it was all ours.”
Two women stood at the edge of a small grotto flanked by a diminutive waterfall. It was an idyllic setting. One woman was bubbling with excitement, the other seemed thoughtful, pensive.
As the first woman started to make her way down to the water, the second woman hesitated. She watched her friend pick her way slowly through the vegetation and wondered if she ever questioned the absence of her old boyfriend. He should not have hurt her. He would never hurt anyone ever again.
“I wonder if Teddy ever came back here?” An innocent question.
Libby smiled. “Oh, I’m sure he’s all tied up somewhere.”
