Nine Years Later


current time:

Jenny has been living on a shoestring for almost nine years. When her fisherman husband died she did not have a penny to her name. There was nothing else for it but to get a job and start working. Now she is a very wealthy woman, and she is dressed to the nines as she visits the place where they scattered her husband’s ashes. For three days she was of two minds about going to visit this spot exactly nine years after his funeral. She is glad she came however, and she is sure her husband can see her, and is smiling to her even now.
