"One For My Baby" Life On Mars Drabble Ruth Tyler Rating-G

Title: One For My Baby
Fandom: Life On Mars
Character: Ruth Tyler (mentions of Vic Tyler, Sam Tyler)
Rating: G
Wordcount: 100
Notes: Drabble-a-Day 2011. Day 242. Prompt from lifein1973. Weekly Drabble Challenge 147: Turn of phrase-Wild about the boy. Unbeta'd. Comments and concrit welcome.
Summary: Ruth knows she did the right thing.

Ruth knew she hadn’t been a good wife; she never thought she’d have to be.

Vic Tyler wore flashy clothes, drove too fast and had a million schemes, none of which involved getting a respectable job or sticking around one place very long. That was good enough for Ruth too, right until she gave birth.

Sammy changed everything. She’d never loved anything the way she loved that boy, and she’d do anything to keep him safe, even from her husband.

She grieved Vic’s departure, never admitting the sense of relief.

Now all she had to be was a good mother.
