This is still the story set in Tasmania, Leonie’s attempt to travel around the beautiful Australian state. Today’s snippet is in Leonie’s POV.
“You must be Leonie.”
She shot around and almost bumped into a young, possibly mid-twenty year old woman. Leonie’s initial thought was that it must’ve been Mrs. Hamill’s granddaughter.
“Yes, I am,” she finally replied, holding out her hand.
The young woman reached out and gently shook it. “Nice meeting you, Leonie. I’m Jenny Hamill.”
“Nice to meet you, too. I assume Hans Mattys has contacted you.”
Jenny let out a soft giggle. “Yes, he has and so has Alex. Apparently your holiday so far has been a nightmare and I’ve been instructed to make your stay as comfortable as possible.”
With slightly raised eyebrows, Leonie asked, “Are you Mrs. Hamill’s granddaughter?”
The woman’s soft giggle turned into a bark of laughter. “I’m sorry. I know that was rude. Just to clarify, I’m Mrs. Hamill. Alex and I’ve known each other since high school. When times got a bit tough, he helped us out financially and in return I look after his house over here.” She paused and looked out across the ocean. “However, I have to say, letting someone else stay here’s a first, so please let me know what you need and consider it done.”
Leonie’s shoulders rose and fell with a deep breath. It wasn’t what she’d expected. Then again, what had she expected?
