Out of the blue, Linda's ex husband unexpectedly turns up, throwing her life into confusion. Eventually she manages to get rid of him. She is then surprised by her best friend. To top it all, certain people from her past return with the intention of having life long relationships with her.
"You're not an easy woman to find," said a voice. Linda felt as if she had been thrown into the past. She stopped typing, and looked up slowly.
"Why are you looking for me?" she asked. Her heart was pounding furiously. Jake had aged, badly. She could not believe how different he looked. He was slightly stooped. When she had last seen him, he had stood straight, at six feet.
"The children need you," he said. Linda removed her hands from her laptop, and clenched them tightly in her lap.
