Tantalizing Tuesday Teaser -- Honeymoon for One

Welcome to this week's Tantalizing Tuesday where we pick any picture that captures our fancy and write no more and no less than 200 words!

Honeymoon for One

I would never have thought I could enjoy this magical place, not with the circumstances that brought me here. Yet the waters washed my soul clean and the tropical breezes carried my worries away. Each sunset soothed my senses and each daybreak delivered new possibilities in abundance.

What had started out as the most miserable day of my life had quickly turned into a giant blessing. Here in paradise I had found myself. A self I had never met before, someone I kept closeted away, afraid to let her live the life she wanted. Afraid to grant her happiness. I found a new job and perhaps a new love. But this time I was going to make sure I was making the right decision. I would not settle for anything less than what I deemed worthy. Ben might have left me at the alter but this honeymoon for one had turned into the trip of a lifetime and if that sucker thought I was paying him back one red cent for it he was delusional.

I ordered another girly concoction and savoured the cool fruity taste as I gazed out at I view that had once only been my screensaver.

I felt this tease was very sad but rewarding in the end. I wonder if you'll write and describe what happened before.
