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.
Ten minutes later, he enjoyed the fresh breeze of the Tamar River as he walked along the foreshore with Kaiser. He took a few deep breaths and his mind started to calm, he started to relax. A sudden jolt from the leash hauled him back to the present. Looking around he figured he was on poop pick up duty. Although a soft laugh escaped his lips, he gave Kaiser a stern look. “You honestly could’ve waited for doing your business until your next walk with dad.”
Throwing the little bag in the next bin, his thoughts drifted into the past again. For a brief moment he cursed Patty. He cursed her for her dishonesty and being more interested in his public profile than him. And, yes, he blamed her for him now doubting anything any woman said. Was he reading too much into Jenny’s words? Had he in fact done the right thing to let Leonie stay at his house?
He shook his head unsure though why Jenny hadn’t mentioned anything about her husband moving out soon.
The phone buzzed, and he retrieved it out of his pants pockets. “Hello.”
There was silence for a beat before she finally spoke. “Hi this is Leonie. I’m truly sorry for bothering you.”
Slightly raising a brow, he asked, “Is everything okay?”
“Yes,” she replied with a bit more confidence in her voice. “It’s a beautiful house. I can actually see you sitting on the porch writing your stories.” And with a little laugh she added, “Although not necessarily crime stories.”
