To read a compilation of all snippets posted for this story, click Here: Emmily Unbound, Chapters 1 & 2 Emmily, the main character, has lost pretty much everything in the last twelve months: her marriage, her parents, her job, and her house.

That's the snippet. If you'd like to read a few more to complete her thought, read on.
Oh, and he might think the glitter is just not a good look on him either.
Anyway, the clothes are a start. Maybe they’ll be gone before they need more.
