She didn’t know what to expect.

She wore her power suit.

In it, she was unflappable.

His face held 25 years of emotion.

Susan was his last, best gift from Vesta.

Love sustained.

Vesta wept.

Finally.

Velma ponders

Velma couldn’t understand her friend’s

sharpness.

Susan was darling.

Her baby had invigorated Velma.

Velma persisted in the relationship.

Velma filled her bag with bread and staples, tossing in a toy for the baby.

Vesta’s tight spot

Delightful, downloadable vintage images: www.etsy.com/shop/MsAlisEmporium

Had Leon and his mother raised Susan?

 

Vesta had stayed in her head

all her life.

 

 

Vesta found refuge in Sherman.

 

 

Silent, no questions, just bodies pressed together.

And purring.

Her throat was tight.  She should find Leon.

Scarlett stumbles in

still life

Scarlett shrugged as she started their

dinner dishes.

“I just don’t get it”

The artist calls it ‘chaotic cottage chic’ *I* call it awesome: www.etsy.com/shop/miwary

Velma brought in the cups.

Scarlett chatted on.

“Being childless is so free.

That baby proves it!  haha.

Why would you get involved?

She really rubs Vesta the wrong way.

Have you noticed?”

Scarlett hung up her apron, reached for cocktail glasses.

Susan is content

Susan didn’t know

what Velma and Vesta knew.

Yet.

Susan was content.

 

She liked her living space, her baby was healthy, and she had Velma.

 

Velma was like the mother she didn’t have.
