A snippet of Hard Girls by Martina Cole

It was strange really, how one person could have so much impact on your life. You didn’t even know they existed for years, then one day you met them, and that was it. Your whole life would be changed overnight, you suddenly found you needed someone so much you couldn’t imagine your life without them. Yet you had lived without them for years and years, you had gone to work, laughed, cried, gone on holiday, and all that time you had never ever dreamed of them, heard of them, seen them, or even smelled them. Then one day you crossed paths with them and your life, the life you had loved, had come to enjoy, wasn’t good enough any more. Without that person you felt alone, unloved, unwanted.

I could just replace “person” with “city”…
