The beach doesn’t hold the same joy for her it once did, but nothing does. She often considers leaving, but to leave would be to leave her family, everything she’s ever known, . . . and everything that remains to remind her of the most joyful time of her life. Those memories also lead to her most painful moments, but it’s the only time in her life, Lorena’s ever truly felt loved. She can hear his laughter now amidst the gulls’ cries and the waves slapping the shore. She turns away, knowing she’ll never have him again but knowing, too, she’ll never leave.
