"Have a good day, girls!" I waved to my children as they walked off to the bus.
"Bye Mom! Have fun with the laundry!"
I smiled as I wandered back to the house in the morning cold. What they didn't know...
The grey fog turned to a lighter sky as I showered and primped. I checked my mascara before slipping my feet into the red high heels.
I suppose I understood. A day of laundry, dishes, and sweeping probably didn't seem like much compared to their dreams of grandeur.
I threw the leather jacket over my arm.
but they didn't know about my other life.
