Happiness (150)

The last of the boxes were placed on the moving truck and Anna pulled the door closed. She took a last look at the house, resisting the urge to go in and check for things left behind. This day was one that she had waited years to come; she never wanted to be here.

Anna’s ex-husband was domineering, he had proved he never cared by ripping their daughter away from her. The biggest hurt came when her mother helped him. Now she truly had no reason to stay, she gave away most of her things and saved up until she could pay cash for a house.

Anna climbed in the driver’s seat and turned the key. Falling on her face was not an option but she was sure that happiness would no longer elude her. 

Where is Anna going? Why isn't she staying to fight? Has she given up? Is she ever coming back? What is going to bring her happiness?
