Claire was many things but a fulfilled woman.
As a young mother, she found herself running a household with little input from her husband.
As a wife, her needs were scoffed at, cast aside thoughtlessly by her overbearing partner.
Shy glances and skittish smiles hid her dissatisfaction, restrained by the vow she made on her marriage day to honour her union.
It was only in dark alleys that her frustrations and pent-up urges found a release.
For fleeting moments, she is whole.
Not just an obedient wife or a dedicated mother, but unfettered woman again.
