Hi everyone –
I’m sharing another snippet from FRESH BEGINNINGS,
a story this is mainly set in the USA and follows our itinerary
when we travelled through five States in a motorhome a few years ago.
Today’s snippet is in Ivy’s POV.
This week’s Hook …
Well, Ivy disagreed.
She looked up at him and saw him raise a brow. “Bigger things?”
Letting out a big breath, she stood again and continued packing. “Yes, bigger things. A humble house with a small backyard. With flowers of all colours. Planting my own vegetables. Children to love and hug.” She turned and pointed at the tiny bathroom. “Something bigger than this little box.”
He lifted his shoulder in a shrug. “I’ll come with.”
When he placed his hand on her arm, she slowly met his gaze.
“Honey, we can work on this.”
She exhaled another long breath. “We’ve been working on this for three years now, Dylan. It’s time to concede defeat.”
Concede defeat. She shivered at the phrase. Defeat meant battle. Had her relationship with Dylan been a battle? Was there a winner or a loser?
