I walked down the planked boardwalk to the beach from the hotel. It was my one chance of escape, my one chance to be alone with my thoughts as i walked alone on the beach without my husband. I could feel the sea breezes from the Gulf of Mexico blowing through my hair. I walked slowly down the beach toward the pier.
Thoughts raced through my mind. Why did I stay with him? I didn’t love him. We had little in common. Things he valued were abhorrent to me. This marriage was a sham. Why did I stay? When I reach the pier, I turned back. I walked back along the beach to the hotel, back to my husband.
