An emotionally gripping story about love, family secrets, and
self-discovery.
A single test was all it took to turn my world on its axis. The life
that I had and the life that I knew nothing about, would soon
collide. Love and hate, truth and lies, bitterness and rejection,
redemption and clarity- would I find my truth? I am Talyn Rose
Easton-Galiano and this is my story of who I was, who I became, and
ultimately who I am. They say that life is stranger than fiction…
but they don’t have my life.

I’m lying in bed, half paying attention to something on Netflix, when Gracen comes into our bedroom. I know he’s there, I feel his presence. I just can’t turn over and acknowledge him.
“You’ve given up. You aren’t the Taly I know and love. Have you even noticed that I haven’t gone away on any jobs lately? I can’t leave you alone.”
“I’m not suicidal, Gracen. I’m sad.”
“I didn’t say you were suicidal but you have cut yourself off from people in your life who love you. You hang out in your PJs all day.”
“I shower!”
“Yeah, you shower but you take off one set of PJs and put on another pair.”
That does it! How dare he minimize my pain. The crying starts and I really hate crying. I cried enough during my teen years that the well had all but dried up. I’m not a crier by nature but I do happy cry and sappy cry at those Hallmark movies that are so cheesy but good. I don’t have to stay here and listen to this shit. I’m off the bed in a flash and in my bathroom—away from him. I strip out of my aforementioned PJs, turn the shower to scalding and step in. I stand under the rainfall shower head until my legs give out and I sink to the floor—back against the shower wall, knees to my chest, head in my hands. I’m sobbing so hard that it’s hard to breathe.
“I’m coming in.” Why can’t he let me cry in peace without an audience? Go away, Gracen.
“Fight, Talyn. Fucking fight. This is not who you are, dammit! Fight!”
“Don’t you think I know that, Gracen? I fucking hate this. I hate who I’ve become. I’m not some weak fucking person who cries on the bathroom floor. I don’t fucking lie down and die. I hate that I took that fucking test. I fucking hate it. Fuck!Fuck! Fuck!”
“Finally. Fucking finally, there is my wife. I love you, Talyn Rose Easton-Galiano. The good, the bad… remember? This will not break you. You cannot let this destroy who you are.”
“I’m so, so sorry, Gracen. It might get worse before it gets better but I’m going to fight like hell to find my way back.”
“Good. Get dressed in real clothes. We need to be somewhere.”

Belle. She is a lover of espresso, great books, all things Chanel,

fashion design— Perryen knew her next adventure lay between the
pages of a novel, her novel.
