I never thought my life would turn out like this, but life happened in a way I’d never dreamed of. I had plans for myself, to have a successful career, to be independent, and selfish, and have a good time. My philosophy as a young, silly girl was that I was here for a good time, not for a long time. I didn’t plan to have children, never planned to be married, and I certainly didn’t plan to be a widow before I reached the age of thirty, but here I am, with all of that and more.
I didn’t think of myself after the accident. There wasn’t time to think of myself as a widow with three small children and a mother recovering from a heart attack that nearly killed her. I didn’t think about all the plans I’d once had. I didn’t think about my clothes, my hair, or my leg that hadn’t healed properly, my health, and especially my happiness.
When my once-estranged sister was involved in a dangerous incident, I didn’t think of myself then either. Along with my mother and children, I flew to Philadelphia to support Lily. That was where I met Marco Mangini. He was a beautiful man, with a charming smile and a charisma that made even my mother blush. Self-assured, polished, and wealthy, I hated him instantly, because suddenly, I was thinking of myself again, those lost dreams and ideals. I thought about my drab clothes, my limp hair, my uneven stride, and my unhealthy pallor. It would not be the last time Marco forced me into a self-analysis, to make me look at my emotions I’d hidden away, to make me feel again.
