Lily believes Mark wants to sell their cherished home to make room for their future family. But then a cryptic message from his ex-girlfriend leads her to the attic. Lily’s world turns upside down as she learns the real reason behind his push to move.

“We need more space if we want to start a family, Lily. This place is just too small,” Mark said, looking earnest.

I sat on the porch swing, swaying gently as the sun set behind our cozy suburban house.

The white picket fence framed our blooming garden perfectly.

This house was a gift from my parents when we married a year ago.

I adored every corner of it.

“But Mark, this house is perfect. My parents were so generous with this gift,” I replied, feeling a pang of sadness.

Mark sighed and sat next to me, taking my hand. “I know, sweetheart. But think about the future. A bigger house means more room for a nursery and a backyard for our child to play in. It’s a step forward.”


His words painted a beautiful picture of our future. A larger house, a nursery, a place where our future children could run and play.

It sounded wonderful, but I couldn’t shake the feeling of sadness. This house held so many memories, even in the short time we had been here.

I looked around our little haven.

The blooming roses in the garden, the cozy living room we decorated together, and the kitchen were where we cooked our first meal as a married couple.

Everything in this house was filled with love and joy. Could I really leave all this behind?

“Are you sure this is what we need to do?” I asked, searching his eyes for any hint of hesitation.

Mark squeezed my hand gently. “I know it’s hard, Lily. But think about it. We’ll create new memories in the new house. It’ll be our home, where we’ll raise our children and build our future together.”

His words made sense, and I knew he was right. Still, the thought of selling this house was difficult to accept. But I trusted Mark and his vision for our future.
