    Summary

    This is the second part of VISA TO LOVE.

    "The previous months had been very challenging for both women. The gift that had been Rindy becoming part of their lives permanently hadn’t only brought so much happiness to them but also struggles and changes. One of the things that had changed the most had been morning time. Before Rindy, Carol would get up early and ready herself while Therese stayed in bed. It was a quiet time for both of them. Now with Rindy, mornings became more rushed and busy."

    Now that Therese is a legal permanent resident in the US, she’ll have to face new challenges: from family to work, she’ll have to learn how to navigate in this new chapter in her life.

    Summary

    “You know my sister? Carol?” Her boss asked.

    “Of course.”

    Carol was pretty unforgettable, both in looks and personality.

    “Right. Well, it seems she’s getting a bit stir-crazy working from home the past five months. Her own fault. She’s become a bit of a recluse. Anyway, she wants to work from here, at the gallery. I told her she could, but only if you were comfortable with it.”

    Therese didn’t mind. It was just one more person, after all, but she kept listening to all the ways in which Carol had been abundantly safe during the pandemic. She’d seen “maybe three people in person,” constantly got tested, and would probably sooner fling herself into oncoming traffic before she had to come within six feet of a stranger, “though that’s par for the course, for her.” Therese was just surprised she even wanted to leave the house and work elsewhere.

    “Well, her air conditioner is broken. That's the only reason why.”

    Summary

    The teacher was no doubt the one Carol's niece, Rindy, talked to her about incessantly. The one she not-so-subtly wanted Carol to meet. Rindy hadn’t been lying— her teacher was beautiful. She looked nice, too, ready to pacify the situation despite likely being just as (if not more) irritated herself. The idea that Rindy chose that particular teacher’s class to disrupt was even more perplexing: Rindy actually liked her. Why fall out of her good graces by landing herself in detention?

    After a quick round of apologies, a back and forth with Ms. Belivet, it didn’t take long for Carol to recognize the scheming smile barely hidden as Rindy tried and failed to bury her face into the desk.

    “Rindy, go wait in the hall.” Carol was livid.

    When the door shut, she closed her eyes, taking a moment to come up with the least humiliating way to explain the situation.
