And these were the women with whom I shared my life. I met them the day the moved in. And I saw what they brought with them…beautiful dreams for the future and quiet hopes for a better life. Not just for themselves, but for their children,too. If I could, would I tell them what lies ahead? Would I warn them for the sorrow and the betrayal that lie in store? No. From where I stand now, I see enough of the road to understand how it must be traveled. The trip is to keep moving forward, to let go of the fear and regret that slow us down and keep us from enjoying our journey that will be over too soon.
MANY YEARS LATER
Lynette and Tom Scavo left the lane four weeks later. They moved to New York, where Lynette learned the joy of being a CEO. She and Tom soon bought a penthouse overlooking Central Park, where, years later, she’d take her six grandchildren and yell at them.
Gabrielle and Carlos Solis left the neighbourhood the following year. This was after Carlos helped her develop a personal shopping web site , which led Gabrielle getting her own show on the home shopping network. They soon bought a mansion in California, where they argued happily ever after.
Two years later, Bree and her new husband left Fairview. They moved to Louisville, where Bree joined a club for conservative women. Trip then encouraged her to enter into local politics. The following November, Bree was elected to the Kentucky State Legislature.
But, Susan Delfino was the first to move from Wisteria Lane. And this is how it ended. She introduced herself to the woman who was moving in.
As Susan left her driveway, she had a feeling she was being watched…and she was. The ghosts of people who had been a part of Wisteria Lane were gazing upon her as she passed. They watched her, as they watched everyone, always hoping the living could learn to put aside rage and sorrow,bitterness and regret. These ghosts watch, wanting people to remember that even the most desperate life is, oh, so wonderful.
