When I looked into his eyes, I couldn’t  keep from crying.

It had been so long since I’d felt this way.

“Mia, what’ is wrong?” he asked.

I cast my eyes down to the ground and bit my lip. I blocked his voice and didn’t want to hear what he had to say.

This wasn’t  Leo and he would never be like him!

Where are you, Leo?     Come back to me, my love.

Grabbing my purse, I headed for the door. “I’m sorry, Henry, but I have to

go now!”

“You’re leaving now?” he asked uneasily. “I nodded. “Yes, I have to go now.”

“Mia, please don’t go!” he pleaded. His tormented face broke my heart, but I felt entrapped, and the need to escape suffocated me.
