I had been trying to convince my sister to visit me in Florida for years, but she never did. She knew her husband did not like to travel, and she chose to keep our relationship going with telephone calls and video chats. When her husband came home one day and packed up everything of his and left her, she was dumbfounded for a short while. I couldn’t really blame her, because they had been together for nearly 10 years. When she asked me how expensive apartments for Brandon area residents are, I got my hopes up for the first time in ages.
I asked her if she was joking, and she told me that there was nothing holding her back anymore. I convinced her to come visit me first, and I bought her airline tickets for the following week. She fell in love with the area as I took her around on a tour from the airport to my home. I asked her to come and stay with me for a while, to see if she likes Florida, and she told me that she had already quit her job and put her stuff in storage.
She could not live in their house anymore because everything reminded her of him. She wanted a clean break, so she started looking at apartments on her second day of being here. She looked at Overlook first because it is only about six minutes from where I live. Needless to say, she fell in love with it. Thankfully, she had her own money saved up, so she was able to handle the deposit and application fees. It did not take her long to hear back from them, and she moved in less than three weeks later. I love having her here, and I know she is happier than she ever expected to be after what he did to her.
