FLY WITH ME
This is Tiffany’s story, who receives a call from the police one morning forcing her to deal with a chapter from her past, which she is unhappy to revisit. When she calls her friend Dylan, it’s Mat from New Zealand she ends up talking to.
This is still a WIP, so critique away. It’s set partly in Melbourne, Australia, and in New Zealand.
Thanks … and enjoy 🙂
Tiffany went into the kitchen for a drink and as she filled and switched on the kettle, her mind went back to the conversation with Dylan’s friend Mat. She’d enjoyed the brief, although bizarre, conversation. His voice had been so happy and full of energy, it had taken her mind off her problem within only a few minutes. Something she hadn’t been able to achieve with the bath she’d taken later that morning. The whole hysteria from the previous year had crept up, leaving her anxious, tense, and with a headache. A nice cup of tea would hopefully do the trick. She thought of Mat’s laugh and her mouth curled in response. It’d been a deep hearty laugh. One of those laughs that could be contagious to anyone who heard it. Closing her eyes, she tried to remember whether Dylan had ever mentioned Mat’s name, but as much as she tried, she wasn’t able to recall ever hearing about a friend from New Zealand.
The whistling of the kettle drew her back from her thoughts, and she poured the water into her cup. Dipping the teabag in and out of the water, she recalled her conversation with Dylan.
“What’s up Tiff? I’ve got about three missed calls here.”
Relief rushed through her like a tidal wave, almost catching her breath. After all, most of her problems were half as bad once Dylan was there to help. Despite being Liam, her brother’s best friend, Dylan and Tiffany had become close during the year Liam had gone to London for a gap year.
“Why haven’t you ever told me about Mat?” Stunned by her own question, she slapped her forehead a couple of times wondering where the question had come from— especially as matters more important were on hand.
There was a quiet chuckle on the other end of the line and a bout of embarrassment rushed through her.
Thanks for all your comments,
I do appreciate each single one of them!

Guess who’s on her mind!
LOL …. the new Kiwi in her life 🙂 Thanks for stopping by, Aurora!
Funny to see where her mind went when she obviously had something else to talk to him about. Mat definitely left his mark.
He did indeed. Thanks for stopping by, Linda.
I had to chuckle at the way she blurted out that last question. She’s just a tad distracted by Mat, isn’t she? lol Wonder if he was just as intrigued about her.
Yeah … glad you liked it … and we’ll soon find out about his thoughts about her 🙂 Thanks for stopping by, karen.
Well she definitely has Mat on the mind…enjoyed the snippet!
Glad you did. Thanks, Veronica!
I wonder if he’s going to answer her or redirect the conversation. And why hasn’t he ever told her about him?
Good question … 🙂 thanks for stopping by, PT.
Busted! Great snippet, Iris. 🙂
thanks, Siobhan 🙂
Hmmm…it would seem she’s much more interested in Mat than even she realizes. 😀
Yup … can’t forget about him 🙂 LOL … thanks for stopping by, Gem!
