Myra dreamed of being an architect after her sixth-grade field trip. Mr. James showed the class wall-sized murals, blueprints, 3-D models, then walked them through a church he’d designed.
Approaching the end of her first year in college, Myra asked Mr. James if she could be a summer intern. He smiled and agreed. By August they were lovers. Architecture school dimmed to insignificance; she didn’t enroll for more classes.
Five years later, Mr. James abandons her and their toddler son for a new intern, just as he’d abandoned his first wife for her. Myra hates him for discombobulating her life.
