Zaiden got Owen off to school then checked on the baby. Once Grace had been fed and changed, he went to wake up Raelyn.

He softly kissed her. “Wake up, sleepy head.”

Raelyn stretched then looked at her husband. “What time is it?”

“A little after 9.”

“Her eyes got wide as she sat up. “Owen…”

“Owen has already left for school after a very healthy breakfast. Grace has been fed and changed and has fallen back asleep.”

Raelyn tried pulling Zaiden into bed, but he shook his head. “Not this time, love. YOu have an appointment to get to.”

“I do?”

Zaiden nodded. “I made you an appointment at the spa. They are going to pamper you and spoil you like you deserve.”


“Grace will be find spending the day with her daddy.”

Raelyn kissed her husband. “You are wonderful.”

Raelyn was relaxing in one of the chairs when she heard two nearby women talking.

“The woman was a prostitute who killed a poor innocent woman then faked her own death to get out of trouble.”

“She blamed all those other people, including her own parents.”

Raelyn sat listening and not saying anything. She had heard all the talk before.

“How is your husband doing?”

“He still says he is innocent and never touched any of those girls.”

“You know she probably released all those names because they turned her down. You just wait and see. Now that she is back in town there will be more arrests. Any man who refuses to fuck her will be accused.”

“You know she’s out there working the streets again. Once a whore, always a whore.”

Raelyn was done listening to this shit. She stood up and looked at the women.

“You are talking about a woman you obviously do not know. If you knew her, you would know that she is an amazing wife, mother, and grandmother. She has more strength in her little finger than anybody else I know. I am proud to be able to call her my mother-in-law.” She started to walk away then stopped. “As for your husband, you may want to go get yourselves tested. Who knows what he may have taken home from the streets.”

She was angry when she left. Instead of going home, she went to talk to Colleen.

“Do you know what people are saying about you?”

Colleen nodded her head. “A few people have said it to my face.”

“How can you stand it? Doesn’t it upset you?”

“How can you stand it? Doesn’t it upset you?”

Colleen shook her head and smiled. “The only people who matter already know the truth. The rest just make up what they think they know in order to tell a good story.” She patted Raelyn’s hand. “People are always going to have opinions and make comments about my past. I choose not to let it bother me. I no longer live in my past. I live in my present and my future.”

Raelyn hugged her mother-in-law. “We are all so lucky to have you in our lives.”

  1. Raelyn told them old hags off.
    Colleen speaks from life and wisdom, the only people’s opinion that matters is the ones she loves and people are going to talk about you regardless. Some people just love the name Colleen, they have it on their lips constantly.
