Just out of college, Elizabeth pursues her life long dream of becoming a writer in the heart of New York City, when an unexpected decision by a close friend throws her life into chaos.


9. Epilogue

One Year Later

I sat, anxiously in a large office, intently watching the publisher survey my new book, 'The Recovery', based on my accident and rehabilitation from the amputation. Oh, and my crazy relationship with George. She looked up at me, over her spectacles. Her expression was unreadable, making me even more nervous than I originally was. Her eyes met mine. "Elizabeth, dear," I grimaced slightly, but nodded hopefully. "I think you're finally ready." I stood up, as fast as my artificial leg would allow me and punched the air. "YES!" I shouted gleefully. "YES, YES, YES!" I paraded around the office, the publisher watching me, amused. "Yes, I'd be happy to publish this book! Whew! What an inspirational story!" I thanked her repeatedly, laughing and crying simultaneously. My dream had come true! Years of writing, meeting publishers who all didn't believe in my books. Finally all was well. I shook her hand graciously and ran out of the office, rather clumsily because of my leg. I wasn't a hundred percent comfortable walking with it yet, but I was definitely used to it. I burst onto the snowy street, smiling at strangers passing. I hurried to the café where everything had begun a year ago. I shoved open the door, the small bell ringing happily, reflecting my mood. And there he was, George with his light brown hair, beautiful smile, and sparkling eyes, waiting only for me. "Well....?" He asked hopefully. In response, I smiled showing every single one of my teeth, and I threw myself into his arms. He hugged me, tighter than ever, laughing proudly. "I knew you could do it Lizzy! YES!" I was ecstatic, as happy as ever, listening to the publisher's words ring in my ears. "Finally Ready."
