♥ Happy Sunday and Happy New Year ♥
I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and a great start into the new year. Thank you for your messages in regard to the fires in Australia; yes, we’re safe and quite a distance away from it.
But, please, spare a thought for all the ones affected by these horrible fires – people, businesses, mother nature, and our beloved animals. Let’s hope for more rain.
Anyway, I’m back with more snippets for you. 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.
“I could’ve lied.”
Alexander stared at her, unsure how to take her silence. Was she a liar? Her whole body sagged, and he had an inkling he’d hit a nerve. In some way or another. Not in regard to being a liar, but the mixed messages about the holidays. Out of the corner of his eye, he saw his father sauntering over to them.
“I was under the impression you were heading to Bridport.”
Now that his dad mentioned it, so was Alex.
Leonie blew out a breath as deep and long as if the world’s problems were weighing heavy on her shoulders. She most certainly was a big puzzle to him.
When she finally replied, she spoke barely above a whisper. “I’ve had no plans, but booked a few nights in St Helens as a backup. The dodgy site was obviously too good to be true. I had this wonderful idea about travelling along the coast and enjoy each day to the fullest.” She gently rubbed her hands over her face. “It’s obvious, I should’ve put more planning into the whole adventure, but more importantly, I should’ve not fallen for cheap offers on the internet.”
Alex looked at his dad who gave him a slight nod. He knew it was supposed to encourage him to jump over his own hesitation and offer his house again.
Thanks for all your comments,
I do appreciate each single one of them!

They clearly interpret her confession in their own way — and it’s probably not how she intended it to be taken.
It’s hard to admit mistakes, especially to strangers, and to men if you would like to come across as a strong independent woman 🙂
Okay – jump in! lol
LOL … thanks for stopping by, Aurora.
I like that she’s admitting her own lack of planning here. Now she comes across as quite honest…great snippet!
Thank you, Veronica. Glad you liked the snippet.
It has to be difficult to admit she’d made a mistake when she planned this trip. I’m curious to know more.
Thank you. It’s not easy, I suppose for any of us 🙂
