Its just a little something I might create into a romance novel but just need some people's advice on what they think.. If I should carry on or not.. Basically its about woman who's divorced and has two children. She has a dark past and when she meets a guy she used to know she falls in love and tries to start her life over...

\"You need to get out the house, you know?\" Suggested my mother while drawing my curtains open. It must have been past noon and I was still in bed. \"I know,\" was all I could reply with moans and groans as I covered my head with the black silk pillow. \"Come. Get up, shower and make yourself look decent. You're going to take your daughter out for ice cream\" she sat on the edge of the bed and patted my leg. \"Can't you?\" I finally sat up and stretched my arms up in the air and yawned. \"Leah,\" sighed my mother, \"you can't sleep your life away to try and run away from reality. You have two beautiful children who miss you. You've been promising Taylor ice cream for weeks now.\" She walked out and left me to decide whether or not I was going out today. Eventually I got up and walked towards my bathroom. I stripped down from the shirt and boxer shorts I was wearing and opened the shower's tap. The rush of freezing cold water made me more alert. As the water warmed I slowly stepped in. I closed my eyes and stood under the warm water, letting all my thoughts drown.

What was wrong with me? I was a 26 year old divorced mother of two children. I shouldn't be sleeping till noon. But I had no choice. I've always been one to run away from reality when things got too much for me. I made a huge mistake. I married at age 21 and had my first child less than a year after my honeymoon. Two years later my second child was born. And that was where everything just got worse..

\"Have you managed to drown yourself in there?\" I heard the hard thumps on the door as my mother moaned about me showering for too long. I quickly rinsed myself and turned the taps off. I dried myself and ran to my room with my towel wrapped around me.

I managed to make myself look decent by wearing some sweats and a hoodie, at least, that's what I call decent and comfortable. I then went down only to find my daughter in a pink dress with a big smile on her little face.

\"Ice cream! Ice cream!\" She sang while jumping up and down excitedly. My mom smiled at me, with a facial expression that said 'enjoy'.

sounds good but it was kind of hard to tell who was talking at times so remember to prof read your work before posting it but don't prof read it immediately after writing it because you will miss things. all and all it was interesting to read.
