can I just check with you - did she really abandon her shopping basket WITH all the stuff she had bought near the foyer? She is upset after seeing her ex-husband with a new partner and children... so I ´d understand she leaves everything behind...

Alex turned and headed back down the aisle, her heart pounding. How stupid she had been, she thought, as she abandoned her basket of shopping near the foyer of the supermarket. How naive to think that for once she had been the one who had been calling the shots.
