Everything seemed to be going pretty well. Yes, she still missed her family but things were going good. She had managed to get her things moved into her new apartment pretty easily. She was so happy to actually be living with him. She was doing well in her nursing classes and Henry said she was a natural. She was actually really happy. Which should have been a clue.
She was actually headed to her library to check and see if anything needed to get put away when she saw the note. She hadn't been expecting her mother to come by the apartment. After reading the note over three times, she pulled out her phone and then noticed that her mother's name wasn't bold anymore. She'd left the station. She didn't even give Ashley a chance to say anything. She was just gone.
Ashley stood there in the hallway for a good ten minutes just crying, holding the note in her hand and completely unsure what to do. And then she realized. It was a pattern. She got engaged and was really happy and then half her family disappeared. She spent an absolutely wonderful day with Mr Darcy and was once again happy and her mother moved to the ship, leaving her practically on her own. Then she was happy to be living with Mr Darcy and now her mother had completely abandoned her.
She made up her mind and headed back to the apartment that was supposed to be her home. It suddenly didn't feel like that anymore. She walked in the door, tears still streaming down her cheeks and threw the note on the nearest flat surface.
"I can't do this anymore." She wiped at her eyes. "I just....I can't...." Before she could get her head around what it was she was trying to say, she just started sobbing, putting her face in her hands.
