Story is a 30-day project - Part Eight.

It's 1.30somethingAM, my eyes are barely kept open, but I had to see where we can take our story. We took it to a nice place in the 7th part. So, the 8th is here, and - of course - I am asking you again to read and write and comment and build it. "Rules" are still the same. Comment and I will edit the next part out of your comments every day.

The Day As It Was - a tiny excerpt from what I added today....


I stared down at my hands, then ran them down my belly. I lifted the sheet and looking down, I smiled. It was as I remembered it, except perhaps a bit bigger. There was a knock at the door and I dropped the sheet.

Yes, it's slightly out of context, so I dare you to put it in again. Oh, the whole story is HERE.

Good night, LJing will have to wait till tomorrow. xxx

By the time you wake up and read this, Viki and Mitja should be my guests here in San Diego - whee!

I will read the epic story after I've said goodbye to my guests at the end of the week.... :-)

Tears flowed both ways.

It took a bit to compose ourselves. When we did I asked her for a bit of time to myself.
"I understand if you need some time alone with your own thoughts."
"No, I just need some time to get dressed! You may be family, but I'm nor willing to play show and tell!"
Chuckling, she headed out the door.

A few minutes later she sat at the kitchen table, an open photo album before her. Again hat gentle head gesture. She had that move nailed, just as had mom. "These were the five of us when we were in our teens. That's Helen, she's the oldest, then your mom, then your Uncle Jack, then me, and last is your Aunt Joan."
My eyes focused on my mother. It was her alright, though I had never seen photos of her at this age. She had a freshly scrubbed look about her and had to have been about 16, I thought.
"17 actually," my aunt corrected me.
"Um, I didn't say anything."
"I'm sorry dear; I hasn't realized that was a private thought."
I gazed directly at her and thought, "so you're a mind reader as well?"
With a slightly exasperated look, she responded. This time I heard her in my mind, though her lips didn't move. "So can you silly; I see I have a lot to teach you."

This what happens when I make an entry from my iPhone after midnight while in bed! "That" becomes "hat" & "hadn't" "hasn't".

Don't worry. :)

Um, I may have gone a bit overboard.

I just started typing and simply let things flow. It's a bloody long entry - so long I had to break it into two coments.

Let me know what you think. I don't want to monopolize the story.

I will read it all. Monopolise? Please, do it. :)
