Interesting, thank you for your comment. In fact, you have read the story before, maybe you remember... It is an excerpt from my novel ‘The Visitor,’ published four years ago in Romania, but not yet in the US, slightly modified to stand alone. Thus, Andy marries Carmen, comes to America first, Carmen comes later with their son and lover. They separate afterwards.
