Bethany Louie (34 years), Zion Sartor (30 years)
TV dinner, again. He’s still unemployed, Bethany doesn’t have any answers.
Commercials flash, loud and bright, and it brings a pang to Bethany’s center, as she thinks of Logan and Mallory. What are they doing at home now?
They stay up late, going to bed only when the sun is on the verge of rising. Tonight, she lingers in the chair, collecting her thoughts. How can she be 34, living with a boy, and playing the part of a woman, but still feel like a child. She’s closed the chapter of living with her sister and family, and even as she embraces the new life ahead, she mourns the loss of the old.
