“I’m ready,” he told her, weeks before. “You and the kids are taken care of–– you can stay in the house. But I can’t do this anymore.”
She couldn’t imagine her life without him, but his suffering was unbearable.
A horse whinnied. Out their window they huddled against the cold, a stark, beautiful reminder of all they’d built together.
She handed him the coffee. They kissed.
“I love you forever,” he whispered as he lifted the cup.
