Prompt: sacrifice

part 1 of the Roddy & Linda Stories series: The Price of Fame

Linda had been prepared… well somewhat, at least… for the intrusion of press into their lives once Roddy established himself as an adult. After all, she reminded herself, who could resist such a story—former child star is all grown up and makes good?

The GOOD part is one thing! She’d learned to dodge photographers in the park or on the way to the market. She’d learned to respond when microphones were shoved in front of her at work or with friends.

But this… This intrusion into their private lives…

Linda wasn’t sure she was ready to make this sacrifice.
