In Anna Karenina Leo Tolstoy wrote, “All happy families are alike; each unhappy family is unhappy in its own way.”

The Petrov family was no exception. Klara had been unsuccessful for years and Mikhail lost patience. Now Ava was his mistress. Klara didn’t blame him. He told her long ago he needed her to fulfill one role, she only needed to give him sons.

Today, Mikhail took Ava’s call and raced from the house.  Ava’s child, a son had arrived. Klara climbed the stairs to the nursery, and one by one threw each reminder of her failings onto the street.


Keep on writing.
