This is still the story set in Tasmania, Leonie’s attempt to travel around the beautiful Australian state. Today’s snippet is in Alex’s POV.
He cocked a brow, speechless at her comment.
“What did she say?” Hans wanted to know.
Pinching the bridge of his nose with his finger and thumb Alex tried his best to recall the conversation as best as possible. “Well, there was a comment of hopefully sooner rather than later when I told her I’d come to Binalong Bay as soon as Leonie moved on.”
His mother shrugged. “You’re asking her to clean your house for a stranger. A woman no less.”
Alex chewed on the piece of roast before he replied, “I’m not sure where you’re going with this.”
Hans let out a deep chuckle. “Your mum’s been listening too much to gossip. Apparently Jenny and her husband are having marital problems.”
“I do not listen to gossip,” his mother protested. “But Jenny’s mother did tell me that Larry’s going to move out at the end of next month. And Jenny’s always been fond of you.”
Suddenly the very tasty roast left a sour taste in his mouth. Whether or not she’d been fond of him, how would that explain Jenny’s comments?
“I’ll be heading to Binalong tomorrow,” he explained as he stood.
Thanks for all your comments,
I do appreciate each single one of them!
