#2913 – Rose-Tinted Glasses
Worthing, January 2020.
She couldn’t help but be nostalgic about returning home. She had been away for seven years, touring the world for work and for pleasure, but now was the time to go back to the place of her birth. In some ways she knew it would be an anticlimax – much would have changed on the face of it, but in reality, the place would be little different from the town she left all those years ago. The shops and sights would vary, probably considerably, from the ones she used to visit, but the people, the mentality, the aspirations, they would still be the same. And that was almost disheartening.
Was she making the right decision? To be fair, she had no choice, she had to go, but she had had ample opportunity to send her apologies, make up her reasons, avoid the seemingly unavoidable. So, she had limited her exposure to this huge backwards step to a few days, and her childhood bedroom awaited her, likely no different from the day she had left it, the day she had walked out and never looked back.
