    Summary

    Someone was knocking at my door and – without waiting for my reply – opened it.

    “There you are, Anne. I was looking for you at the staff meeting, but I couldn’t find you. Here, I want you to meet my brother. Frederick, this is Anne, the wonderful social worker I have told you about. Anne, this is my brother Frederick. He will be working with us for the coming twelve months for the sports project.”

    Twelve months.

    Fuck.

    Summary

    Erick Wentworth has always been a runner. Avoidance is his specialty. So, when he somehow finds himself back in Uppercross, thanks to his sister Sophie and her husband Adam, he's flummoxed. It's the one city he swore he would never visit again. The same city where he met Anne Ilao eight years ago.

    And so, he does what he does best. He runs. Away from the truth, at least.

    Erick promises himself that he's over it, pretends he doesn't know her, and acts as though their relationship all those years ago never happened.

    But, he finds that running away from their past isn't as easy as he thought.

     

    **This is a companion piece to the story A Sense of Self told from the point of view of Erick. Some of this probably won't make sense unless you've read that story, BUT I think that if you read this and are interested, you can also go back and read the original story afterward.

    Summary

    Anne Ilao has always put her family first. It's the Filipino American way. Her father and sister, Walter and Eliza, cared more about their friends. Her sister, Maria, cared too much about everything - but especially her in-laws. So, it has always been up to Anne to care about the family as a whole. It's what she promised her mom she would do, before she passed.

    The one time she considered refusing this job, letting her family fend for themselves, was about 8 years ago. The year she met Erick Wentworth. He left (she broke both of their hearts), but now he's back.

    Anne is forced to confront her past, the one she's been trying very hard to forget, and confront her present. Is this the life she wants? Or really - can she go after the life she wants?

    Summary

     

    When the evening was over, Anne could not but be amused at the idea of her coming to Lyme, to teach patience and resignation to a young man she had never seen before, nor could she help feeling, on more serious reflection, that, like many other great moralists and preachers, she had been eloquent on a point in which her own conduct would ill bear examination.
