For today’s snippet I moved a little forward again. A couple of weeks later, Addison has her first day at work, as a primary school teacher.
DEFYING RULES is set along the Australian Great Ocean Road and tells the story of Ethan Tomlin, single dad, and manager of a hotel chain.
This is still a WIP, so critique away.
Thanks … and enjoy 🙂
She followed Jax, the Grade 6 teacher, and Mary, the Prep teacher, out of the staff room and along the hall to attend the first day assembly. The noise of the excited children made her smile and excitement filled her as well. Addison went into her classroom filled with twenty-something little children, dressed in the uniform of green, forty-something eyes staring at her in anticipation.
She sighed deeply and knelt in front of the children. “Okay, my little ducklings. I know you’re all excited, and actually so am I, but I’m hoping you’ll be on your best behaviour.” She took the hand of the girl at the very front. “Hello pumpkin. Can you show me the way to the assembly hall?”
Nodding her small head, the girl said eagerly, “Yes, Miss—”
Addison winked at the little girl. “My name is Miss Ryker.”
“Yes, Miss Ryker.”
“Let’s go pumpkin. We’ll be right behind you.”
Addison followed her little herd of children into the assembly hall and watched them as they gave little hand waves to parents and some grandparents. One of the boys high-fived a man and as she looked up, her heart almost skipped a beat.
It was the dad with no name from the Christmas concert.
Thanks for all your comments,
I do appreciate each single one of them!

4 stars – NEW BEGINNINGS is a very emotional read, one that is heartwarming as well as heart wrenching. It gives you hope in the act of human kindness and that good things do happen to good people. I highly recommend this book.
