This week’s post continues with Chapter 8, Scene 3 (1.8.3).
Feedback welcome. Thanks!
Still looking for more beta readers; if interested, email me at abehrhardt [at] gmail.
End of previous scene, followed by the link to the new scene:
“I have our tickets, and I’m pretty sure Ronnie has hers. Princeton first,” Susan hesitated, “—and then out to you.”
“I’ll pick you up in Manchester, so email the arrival times, okay?” They never spoke of Charles—or Amanda and little Thaddeus Charles Renton—Tad, the usurper—but the dust had settled quietly on that front—before Ethan, and Kary hoped Steven and Tad would grow up untainted. Not their fault. None of it was their fault. They were ‘family’—not her family, but family. Animosity took energy—gave nothing. If she found any she would put it in Akiiya.
Never begrudge family.
