In today’s AuthorHouse Author’s Digest article M. West has to decide if she will break a promise she made to herself in order to follow her destiny.
Is the Last Resort a Step Too Far?
By M. West
I was completely out of ideas.
There was no way to ever make this happen.
I couldn’t even hurry up and learn to be a prostitute in enough time to pay the remainder of the fee. My husband, who is my rock, was having a panic attack and was totally unable to be my emotional support as he usually is. I guess that naturally happens when you take a man’s money and tell him you’ve botched the whole thing and it’s all non-refundable.
“You can’t think of any other way to get the money?” he asked me.
Well, I did have an estranged mother.
But I could never ask her for money. This was the lady who left my family homeless during the coldest January on record so that she could injure my father who was living with us at the time. This was the lady who bankrupted my sister. I had promised myself that I would never ask her for anything ever again. I had worked so hard to limit her exposure to myself and especially to my children. I could never ask her for money. And anyway, she’d just turn me down.
That was the test.
Would I ask or not?
