It passed five years already when Nora slammed the door behind her. She still can hear that slam. It was the most difficult decision that had to be made so fast. She was not realizing fully the consequences of her action. She could loose her children. Torvald could ban her from visiting them. She had to do it. She did not know any other way of persuasion. It was desperate act of self-defense.
Nora had some savings that her father left. She used the money wisely. After a few weeks of getting used to real world she found some office job. The job was simple and gave her a work ethic lesson.

The meetings were very painful for her, although now she was independent woman deep inside her she wanted to be Torvald’s little girl. She noticed on the meetings that Torvald was glancing at her. They started to talk not only about business but also about daily things. They started to communicate.
