Lola grabbed her suitcase as she pulled the front door shut and locked it tight behind her.
This was the last damn time she would let anyone dictate her life to her, and she was so out of here. Just wait till he came home tonight, and realized she was gone.

Louis. Chosen by her parents, of course, as a perfect caretaker/fiance’ for her, Lola had never had a chance. She’d grown up being trained that it was better for her to “behave and do what you’re told”.
To hell with it. It was time to get a life.
What kind of life that would be – who knew?

A little money she’d earned and squirreled away in a secret bank account. She had that, and the few things she’d decided to take with her.
Off she goes, into the wild blue…. out yonder.
