RememberingBy Nan Claire Falkner

On the second Wednesday of every month, Martha made the long trek to her ex-husbands home so he could visit with their daughter, Chloe. Even though they had divorced 3 years ago, Melly thought that her ex-husband was a good father and had really been a pretty decent spouse.

Jackson, the ex-husband, loved the visits from his daughter Chloe. He had helped bring her into the world on the side of the road because she wouldn’t wait until they got to the hospital.

Martha began to scream loud, a slap, and a baby cried!

  1. Dear Nan,

    From the last line I wasn’t sure if Martha was having another baby or if this was a memory. It was a bit unclear.
    You have me wondering why Martha and Jackson divorced in the first place. It’s never too late you know. 😉



  2. Nan, like Rochelle, I was a little confused here. And in the 2nd sentence, you call Martha, Melly. that really confused me more.

    That said, the sweetness of their relationship is touching. Nice job!

  3. I’m a bit confused about Melly… but in any case, that’s how it should be with a divorce: let the anger go and both love and care for their child.
