Betty smiled. “And you moved here because…”

I had to think for a moment. “I don’t know who I am anymore. I left the important parts of myself behind. I thought I wanted to get away from the world, but maybe I want to just have a place where I can sit and think and be.”

“What about men?”

“What about them? I’m forty-five. The men I know want twenty-two-year-olds with tiny waists and flat abs. They don’t want experienced women who have a few stretch marks and are nicely rounded on the edges. Do you know how long it’s been since I let myself eat a full meal? John always kept an eye on my weight.”

Betty snorted. “You’re insane if you think you’re fat.”

“I suppose. I know I’m not thin. But when did a size ten become fat? I ate a lot while John was gone, but never full meals. Just snacks.”

“Maybe you ate a lot when he was gone because when he was around you didn’t get to eat. Quit worrying and finish your cinnamon roll. I know that you might not believe me right now, but not all men are like that. Trust me.”

I wasn’t sure I could trust her on that.
