Blanche stood, dumbfounded, at her door. She really did feel like an old fool to have believed so easily in her boyfriend’s promises of marriage and a happily ever after at her age only to find out that he was a bigamist, already married to, cheating on, and breaking the hearts of so many other women. In a week or two, she would have forgotten any other man, but she had a feeling this man, and the lesson he’d taught her so cruelly, would stay with her for a long time.
She felt Dorothy’s hands as though her new friend seemed to be reaching for her from a very long distance away. She heard Rose murmur something so softly, so meekly, that she couldn’t begin to make out her words. But she knew they were there with her as they pulled her back inside her home, which she now shared with them, to safety, and to love. Arms went around her. She was hugged tightly, lovingly, caringly.
She didn’t know how long it would take to get over this heartbreak, but she knew one thing. She may have lost another man, but she had friends who’d stay with her forever.
