Tara kept turning around, trying to see it as long as she could.

Karl looked at her quizzically. He couldn’t fathom her interest.

The area was dotted with such places. He had seen them all his life.

He knew the story inside – cramped quarters, smoky cooking place, eked out living, yearning for something better…

He had run from it all!

He hadn’t seen the simple beauty, the rustic charm, the home!

Maybe he had exchanged the picture perfect for the perfect picture!

Now it was he who took another look.

The bend in the road hid it from sight.
