This is my ET fan fic. Super excited about this fic. It's one that I'm proud of so far. Just some notes: LE is now EJ, and Luis and Migs are back in Harmony
It had been five years since she had last seen Harmony, and she would prefer if she had never come back here. Unfortunately, she had to. Three nights ago, she had received word that her mother had passed away. The illness she had suffered from relapsed suddenly, and taken her life before there was any chance of recovery. The last time she and her children had seen her mother was when she was at her home, off to start anew without looking back. Now, she had to bury her mother, just as she did with one of her older brothers.
Theresa Lopez-Fitzgerald let out a breath that she had been holding for a couple of seconds as she stood in front of the church. She remembered the last time she had set foot in there like it was yesterday. Ethan had been furious with her. He thought that she had been lying about Alistair raping her so that Ethan could feel sympathy towards her. At that moment, she realized that the man she thought she loved was nothing but a lie. He turned his back on her when she needed him the most. From that point on, she knew she had to get away from here, from him. She needed to be with someone who would never hurt her the way he hurt her.
But now she was back. She wasn’t sure if she was ready to face everyone again, she so very much wanted to just turn around with her children and drive out of Harmony again, but she couldn’t do that, not with her mother lying in a coffin in the church.
“Come on, guys. We have to say goodbye to Grandma. She’s gone to a better place now.” She said to Jane and Little Ethan before walking into the church.
Those familiar walls were like strangers to her. Never had she felt so uncomfortable being there with all the people who had shunned her. She wasn’t sure if she should be there, but her family expected her there. With her children by her side, Theresa made her way to the back pew quietly as to not appear obvious to everyone else who was there. All she wanted to do was say her final goodbye to her mother before disappearing from Harmony, vowing never to return.
