I’m back again! I got caught up in deadlines last week and missed Saturday Spankings completely. (Unfortunately, the creative part of my brain doesn’t seem to know how to work unless I am under stress and frantic. I write well under those conditions, but I forget everything else.) Anyway, poor Lainie has been anxiously awaiting the arrival of some of her neighbors from Corbin’s Bend for far too long. She is more than ready for me to get a move on. Today’s snippet picks up directly after the one I shared two weeks ago. If you missed it, you can find it here.
Her stomach clenched painfully at the thought, a wave of nausea washing over her. Stop it. She gritted her teeth and willed herself to calm down. This was absurd. She’d been facing down classrooms full of hormonal teenagers for more than a decade. Surely she could handle meeting a few of her neighbors.
“Hey,” Grant said suddenly in her ear. He had crossed the room to her, and she had not even seen him move, lost in her thoughts as she was. “It’s going to be fine.”
Lainie still thinks I’m not moving nearly fast enough, but what can I do. Rules are rules after all. Not that that helps much. Lainie is not always so good with rules. Who among us is? She’ll just have to be patient though.
While we are all waiting patiently, be sure to go check out the rest of today’s offerings.
