A Symes-Mobberley House eBook
Jack Simmons, a handsome auburn-haired man of thirty-five, and a reasonably successful car salesman, sat on the end edge of the bed watching his wife’s slow but steady breathing, not really noticing the dark shadows moving ever so slowly around the room. Lois was beautiful with her tall, picturesque stature (strongly resembled Nicole Kidman), long golden locks and blue eyes that could melt any man’s heart. Still, she was intelligent and always kind and considerate, and she never complained (which bugged him more than he wanted to admit) when he came in late, which was often as he worked overtime almost every night, trying to keep their middle-class home with its two-car garage and healthy checking and savings accounts in the local Bank of America. Plus, she had given him a beautiful daughter by the name of Betsy Jane, named after his mother. Betsy Jane had received his hair color and green eyes. She was now five and starting kindergarten.
In spite of what many would consider his good fortune, as of late, Jack could not help but harbor a haunting sense of hopelessness and helplessness and believed himself a total failure.
