It's about Mia finding something in her basement that will change her life
Mia walked into a storage in order to clean the basement. She rummaged through the dusty materials till she came across a photograph. She looked at the photograph and stepped back suddenly in shock. Her heel stepped on an old unused toothpaste container. Squirt. The toothpaste inside the container was all over her left leg and adjacent floor. She whispered in a low heave, "always making a mess" She tried to brush off the toothpaste from her leg and despite some residue getting off onto her hands, the majority of the toothpaste remained stubbornly still.

She sighed and with her dirty hands looked at the picture again. The picture was of her former boyfriend, now deceased, with another girl. She turned the post card over. The date was June 25th, 1987, two months since she started dating him. She remembered an old conversation she had when she agreed to live in this very house with him three years after they started dating.

"Tell me the truth. After all our time together, have you once liked or thought about another girl?" she asked.

"No, I would never" was the reply.

"Then, I accept living together forever but are you sure you never want to get married"

"Yes, but its that I don't believe in marriage. I want us to be together because we want to be together and not because of something that binds us together"

Mia violently tore up the photograph and threw it as far as paper would fly before muttering, "I guess things are not always as they seem"
