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.
What the house lacked outside, it most certainly made up inside. Leonie ambled along the hall way closer to the lounge room. It was furnished cosy, yet very modern. The big screen TV at the wall next to the big bay window caught her attention.
She let out a soft chuckle. “Boys and their toys.”
Everything was kept in a cream, light brown colour. The couch matching the same tone, the carpet was slightly darker coloured. She stepped a little further and peeked into the kitchen. And no surprise here either, everything was modern, same colour scheme as the lounge room, with the electrical equipment in a shiny silver. Over the next ten minutes she discovered the whole house was designed the same way.
She found the spare bedroom upstairs. Mrs Hamill had done her best to make her feel welcome indeed. The bed smelled of fresh sheets, a vase with fresh garden flowers decorated the small table near the window, and she’d left some towels and face washers on the bed. Leonie rose her eyebrows. The towels were bright red, the facewashers an odd green, and although cleaned and nicely folded, in the scheme of things, looking old and well used.
Her phone buzzed and while still distracted by the towels, she answered without checking the ID.
Once she heard the voice on the other end of the line, she wished she had, though.
