in the beginning, woods colt

One day while they were out gathering firewood in the forest while the kids were back in the cabin. With the marriage on the skids, sex was rare. A year later she had a newborn and he had a lover in Spokane. He left her stranded up on the mountain with three young children. In desperation as days passed and the food started to run out she wrote a note and placed it in the mailbox. It was discovered by the postman who got the message to her mother. Her mother came, picked her and the children up, and took them back home.
