A short story.
She knew that she was ready to do what must be done.
Emily Eldritch has known for all of her thirty-nine years that she is not who she is meant to be. Now, in an anonymous hotel in Mid-Town Manhattan, she faces the truth of her ruined life; a husband who does not love her, a child she believes she is not fit to care for, and a grief that has never been faced.
And yet, in her final hours, something calls to her, reliving the events that have so reduced her... and offering her an impossible alternative.
Now Emily must choose whether to continue in this world, or take her chances in the next.
