A string of unlikely events got Rose here. She was now sitting across the table from an expert appraiser on Antiques Roadshow. She told herself that despite how horrible the truth was, she would keep her composure. But when they told her more about her grandmother’s painting, she couldn’t help herself.
Her eyes were wide as she stared at the appraiser, she was gobsmacked. It was like everything around her had frozen in place. Her emotions were all over the place and it was clear on her face. The appraiser waited for her to recover before giving her more information about her beloved heirloom.
She would never forget this day.
