Happy Wednesday everyone.
Hope you’ll enjoy another “hook” from “Journey to her Dreams “.
When she finally reached the bar, she ordered a lemon vodka as well as some water and as she searched for some change in her tight pockets, someone spoke to her.
“May I buy you this drink?”
Hollie looked up straight into Jeremy’s eyes.
“H-hi,” she stuttered. “So now you’d like to talk to me?”
He choked back a chuckle. “I had to take a phone call. My apologies. That’s why I’d like to shout you a drink.”
It did make sense. She vaguely remembered seeing him leave the club. Biting her lip, she moved her head to find Alex in the crowd, suddenly uncomfortable without her friend. Unaware, however, of Hollie’s situation, Alex was happily chatting with Ben.
Turning back to Jeremy, Hollie answered above the background noise, “Thank you. That’s very kind of you, but no thanks.”
“Just this one,” he persisted.
“I’m sorry, but my friend is waiting for me to bring her a glass of water. Maybe next time.”
Although tempted, something inside told her she wasn’t ready, yet, for the flirting and dating business. And like so often, she cursed her dreams for her hesitation. What did they mean? Why was she having them? And who was the woman?
Thanks to those dreams, she’d been second-guessing herself more and more often when it came to men, too worried the dreams had a meaning which she still had to figure out.
“How about you take the water to your friend and then return for a drink with me?”
Hollie exhaled a long breath. He didn’t give up easily, and as much as she was uncomfortable in the situation, something about him was irresistible.
There must be a reason for her dreams…
Hollie Anderson, a young woman living in Tasmania, is content with life, even more so since she has met Jeremy. However, she has been having a recurrent dream that impacts her daily life, as well as her relationship, a dream that eventually takes her on a journey to Ireland.
Samantha Shaughnessy enjoys the success as Head of Advertising for a popular magazine in the Irish capital Dublin. Married to Padraic, she thinks she loves her husband, but when she meets Hollie under unusual circumstances, she needs to face the truth–and not just about her marriage.
When both women meet and find they share an unexpected tie to the past, will they finally be able to move on into relationships with the men they love?

she might not be read for the club scene, but you’ve given hints that she’s getting close. All she needs, I suspect, is an irresistible man to push her over the line.
You’re suspecting right 🙂 Let’s hope, he’s the one!
Very interesting bit. Will she or won’t she return.
Glad you enjoyed it, Janet 🙂
