Chapter 23 – The Impossibility of Denial

Alison stood before the sink, clenched her fists and pressed her nails into her palms. She scrunched her eyes tight until they watered. She tensed every sinew as if in hope that when she relaxed, the world would be different.

She needed a drink of water.
She hated herself. She hated John, she hated Stuart, she hated his disease and she hated that they both loved her and most of all she hated that she loved John.
Stepping back from the sink, she stood astounded at her thoughts and that for the first time, she’d admitted the truth to herself.
