Emily walked to her front door, the soft leaves crunching under foot. She’d never had a broken heart before; this was entirely new. She’d given up everything for him: she’d quit her job, rehomed her dog, moved across the country, and given away her love.
Now she wasn’t quite sure what to do. She entered the apartment and collapsed onto the bed. She needed something for her, something that didn’t rely on him. Truly, she needed space. As she scrolled on her phone, a post caught her eye. ESL teachers wanted in Spain. Degree required. Without overthinking it, Emily clicked apply.
