With time, mobile phones have made our lives easy and interesting. Almost every smartphone is equipped with a camera, and it is very easy for a person to capture photos and to make videos to be shared with family and friends. People often use social media to share their family photos with the world. It is an interesting activity, but at the same time, it can cause problems.
Fighting back tears, she reached for the photo again and scrutinized it once more. Her heart pounded out of her chest as she came to the startling realization.
With puffy eyes and a distressed voice, Susan shoved the photo in front of her husband's face and demanded that he explain what was going on. His answer left her shocked.
It was Susan and John's 15-year anniversary. They appeared to have the kind of relationship that most people could only dream of. So, to mark the occasion, Susan decided to set up a family photoshoot to capture the life she felt so lucky to have.
Little did she know, her luck was about to run out.
THE GOOD LIFE
Susan and John lived in a respectable neighborhood in a nice house with decent careers and had wonderful children. They first met in high school and quickly became sweethearts.
Susan was studious and shy, John on the other hand was a bit of a bad boy. He had a reputation for skipping class and causing trouble. They were an unlikely match but somehow, they worked.
HEAD OVER HEELS
When Susan was finally won over by John's persistence in asking her out, she fell quickly in love.
It wasn't long after their graduation that Susan found out she was pregnant. Although the unexpected pregnancy came as a shock, they decided to rise to the challenge and build a life together.
She looked at the photo as her hands clenched into fists. She tried to fight back the tears that threatened to fall. How could he do this to her?
Their relationship wasn't easy at first. Having a child as teenagers, they were suddenly thrown into adulthood. They had no money and struggled for years to finally get the comfortable life they had now.
PASSING OF TIME
Susan couldn't believe how fast time had passed. It felt like just yesterday when John finally mustered up the courage to ask her to marry him.
Their son brought the rings to the altar as Susan stood there, pregnant with her second child. It felt like the whole universe worked to bring their family together. But soon, the opposite would happen.
