Mira Shaw showed up at the end of the funeral in the background. She wore a tight mini dress, with dark shades broad elastic belt, and huge wide brimmed hat. This was his favorite outfit. She looked up and sniffled. His family did not know she was the one who made all of the arrangements. His wife had long gone, but his four grown children lined the front row. Hugh Townsend had many friends, she stood in the back ground barely noticed. Their relationship was mostly secrets, lies, and sex. This was all she wanted. All she wanted was him, he was married but she had been with him for many years. Mira really loved the man she was dating, so she really did it to please him. Mira got some satisfaction from it but this was her gift to him. They had been together for thirty years and now it was over. This was her closure. She caressed the large turquoise ring he gave her. It was her mistress ring he always said. She turned on her heel and walked out of the cemetery.
