It has been raining here FORVER and we finally got some sunshine today! But it’s also suppose to rain again in two days. I don’t know how our garden is supposed to survive this.
About my week…
So, I have been slacking on my writing already. I think there were only two days that I made my writing goal. In my defense, I had to research a few things, as well as do some errands for the husband, who is loving the fact that I’m out of school. We also had to do some work in the garden. I’ve already lost some baby Roma tomato plants to the rain, but the older ones survived, so I’m still hoping for a good crop for canning in the Fall.
Another reason for slacking is that Monday, my husband and I celebrated seven years of marriage!! I got a beautiful sapphire earring and necklace set, and my husband got X-Wing toys-er, I mean-figures.
About my writing…
I am now in Chapter 2, working on Scene 3 right now! I am go excite with how it’s turning out already, even though it’s barely started! As I mentioned before, I am way behind in my word count goals. It probably doesn’t help that I’ve been rewatching Merlin on Netflix while I write, but I need my Netflix! Or at least the background noise from it!
I was about to get into my car when I heard a familiar voice say, “Miss Lake, please hold on!”
Against my better judgment I stopped. I watched as a forest green Accent hatchback pulled up to my yard.
“Do I know you?” I asked as the driver quickly got out. He looked to be at least six feet tall, and was wearing a tank top and shorts that showed off toned calves and stacked arm muscles. He had short, dark red hair and as he walked over I noticed that his eyes were a bright jade green.
“I’ve been trying to get a hold of you all week.” He held out his hand. I’m Erent, Erent Cress,” we shook hands, “and I would like to buy your father’s house.”
“Excuse me?” I asked.
“I’m interested in buying your father’s house.”
“How did you found out about this house? I didn’t even know about it until a few days ago?” I gave him a second to answer, but when he didn’t, I continue, “The house is not for sale, and if I do decide to sell, it’ll be through a realtor, so you would need to contact them. Actually, how did you get this address?”
Erent looked pensive for a moment, and then said, “Because your dad gave it to me. That house is where I live. There’s actually a group of us.”
I had been wrong, he did have a family! But then why did he leave them out of the will?
“Wow, what a jerk. I guess he loved you a little less than me, huh?”
He gave me a strange look, and then his eyes went wide as he realized what I was saying, “Oh, no, it’s not what you think….”
“Well, I guess I’ll find out when I get there.” I turned to head back to my car.
