“Come for the romance and stay for the breathtaking scenery. ”
(5 star review)
I started this story a few weeks ago and I hope you’re enjoying it so far. I’m not sure where it’s heading, so any comments / critique is more than welcomed. Jesse, the Park Ranger, found a dead kangaroo last week, with a little joey still inside – alive.
His mouth edged up when both females let out a big huff as they exited the car and stomped across the car park. There was nothing he could do. Unsure of how long the joey had been without food, he needed to make him his priority. He wrapped the small animal into the blanket again and placed him on the passenger seat before returning to his seat. He was about to close the car door when he heard Zoe.
“Mr Park Ranger,” she shouted from across the car park.
He got out again and strode towards her.
“Sorry to be a pain,” she said. “But we would like to follow you to the shelter if that’s okay.”
Looking past the girl, he saw her mother waiting at the car, but he was unable to interpret the expression on her face. Frustration about a hike gone wrong? Or pride for her daughter for caring so much? He sighed inwardly. It could be as simple as tiredness.
“Of course,” he finally replied. “I make sure I won’t lose you.”
“Thank you so much,” Zoe replied.
“You’re very welcome.”
He looked up at Lexie. A small smile spread across her face as she watched her daughter hopping back to the car. He assumed it was her relief of a day that had gone so bad turning into something good. When she met his gaze, his whole body went on alert and somewhere inside he appreciated the opportunity to spend more time with her.
Thanks for all your comments,
I do appreciate each single one of them!

Uh, Mr Ranger? I think you’re in danger of forgetting about the joey!
LOL … I don’t think he will 🙂
I really like how this story is unfolding, in pace, and in events and emotions. Another excellent excerpt for us today!
Aww … thank you Veronica.
I wonder how much of that “we would like to follow you” is “I would like to follow you” — I don’t think she wants to give up the joey and is hoping she can foster it.
Oh, and a quick edit-y thing: “I make sure I won’t lose you.”
Thanks PT … again … i think you might be onto something 🙂
