Despite numerous diversions, I had followed through on my plans to make the trip to Santa Fe.
No matter what the Universe threw at me, I was determined to follow through, after all, I had made the promise to stand by my sisters side on her special day, even though I loathed weddings and knew it would mean I would have to encounter slimy old Uncle Thomas.
None of that mattered, nothing did, because I was happy for her, more importantly for the first time in her life, she was happy.
Diversions or not, I had to go in a hurry, and took a wrong turn that would end my life.

The end of the story is… just… I’m at a loss. It turns so sharply, just like the words describe. Brilliant.
thank you so much, I am glad you enjoyed the story! Have a wonderful day!
It’s always the wrong turn. Imagine what might have happened with the right turn.
