Alone Time by Janel Gradowski

She slides her feet up the bathtub wall until her toes emerge from the water. She imagines her toes are luxury, beachfront hotels. She dreams of checking into one, alone. She ignores the thunderous crash, screaming and her husband’s pleas for help from the other side of the locked door.




Janel Gradowski is a daughter, wife, mother, dog owner, writer, jewelry designer, occasional teacher and blogger. She writes fiction to help maintain her sanity.
