Inspired my story:
Monique sat by her bay window and watched the boats full of tourists float by. She hated this time of year. There were so many people that didn’t belong here milling about. She liked it better in the winter, except for the cold, of course. But none of these strangers were here in the winter. She could leave her house and no one stared at her or tried to stop her, or whispered about her as she walked by. Her neighbors knew her story and their whispers had ceased years ago when she became just another oddity among oddities.
Finally, she had had enough. She made a few phone calls and went to take a bath. When she came out an hour later her bags were packed and were being loaded into the car.
She gave her maid a little hug, “Keep the dust down darling, I’ll be back in the three months”.
