Something Feels Strange…

By Tiffany B. Quinn

The cooler we’ve just hauled out to the car signals the end of our preparations—everything is packed in the car and ready to go. I can hardly wait until morning when, finally, we will be on our way. I realize that I’m looking forward to heading to the mountains with almost as much anticipation as I would if I were still Chris. The thought of hiking to the top of the mountain overlooking the lake really appeals to me as does spending some time in the canoe with a fishing pole. It’s been a long time since I’ve done either.

Of course, doing it with Andy really adds to the appeal.

On the flip side, hanging out while waiting for Rana & Co. to drop the other shoe will be nerve-wracking.

Maybe he won’t get the message.

One can always hope.

Chapter 53: Andy's Secret

Atlantis

Synopsis: When Atlantis drowned, King Curry and Queen Mara were given a Blessing that would restore Atlantis when their lineage found two who would once again embody their eternal love.  

 


[-][+][-]

The Empire Of Atlantis was the first and greatest of the ancient empires with its arcane knowledge of the mind and spectral realms which allowed them to harness power and elemental forces to do the impossible.

The Mages embraced their abilities and set out to help the People who were suffering from maladies, only to awaken a Darkness that swept over the Land, wreaking havoc as it caused the volcano to erupt, and sinking Atlantis.

GABY: BOOK 2 Summer Girl*Part 74 Over The Edge

It was with more than a little trepidation that I set out Monday morning for a training ride. Was it really only last week that I had the accident? I deliberately chose a route that didn't go along the Worksop road and just took it steady, yesterday's race was ridden on adrenaline and I'm still quite sore. At least it looked like the weather would be better today, not that we'd got much planned, not much more than hanging out really.

I pootled along, being exceedingly cautious at any side roads, and contemplated just why I did this. Of all the sports out there, why did I pick on one of the most dangerous sports going? Well it's not the cycling that's particularly dangerous; it's the interaction with other traffic really. If I really thought about, I was fairly immune to the 'close calls' that I have nearly every time I go out, cars cutting in, pulling out, drivers on their phones or just driving too fast for narrow lanes.

Mrs. Harrison gives me a tight hug before turning to the rest and nodding her readiness to get back to the meeting. They return to the conference room to continue whatever planning they are doing. Dr. Quinn smiles and winks at me as he returns with the group. I’m pretty sure that he knew what my answer would be. He knows me too well.

Now, I only have to await the decision.

It’s going to be a long afternoon——

Chapter 52: We're Not Done Yet

Something Feels Strange - 51

Something Feels Strange…

By Tiffany B. Quinn

My relationship with Laurie suddenly comes into sharp focus. It was what? Two months ago that I was having this same conversation with her? Only then I was the one feeling like a fool. If she felt half as bad then as I do now, I really feel sorry for her. I know how Andy must feel having been there myself. I need to try to make him understand that I really do love him, regardless of the motivation which began the relationship. That’s how Laurie got through to me.

I really, really hope this conversation has a similar ending to the one I had with Laurie. At least we won’t be fighting mosquitoes at the same time.

Something Feels Strange…

By Tiffany B. Quinn

If it weren’t for one nagging problem, I’d say it was a perfect afternoon.

The nagging problem?  It’s Andy. I’ve called at every opportunity and left a dozen messages but he’s not called me back. I’ve also sent several emails from my smart phone—he hasn’t responded to those either.

Where is that boy?

Something Feels Strange…

By Tiffany B. Quinn

The first indication something is wrong comes when I hear someone stumble over some shoes I left out just for that purpose.

“Laurie?” I enquire as, groggily, I try to sit up.

“Not quite,” a gruff male voice responds quietly, as I become aware of an aromatic cloth clapped over my mouth and nose. I begin to struggle and bite but I’m pinned to my bed and my world quickly turns black.

My last thought before passing out is: Where’s the FBI——?

It also occurs to me that I’ll no longer be able to monitor Dr. Lang’s computer activities as he’ll be removing his computer from the house. I’m sure FBI geeks can hack the hotel’s system and keep the censor program active.  This investigation is truly out of my hands now.

I manage to resist the urge to read Mrs. Lang’s email—after all, I did promise to be a good girl——

Chapter 48: Waiting

Something Feels Strange…

By Tiffany B. Quinn

The tears have dried up by the time we reach the clinic. They are replaced with a resolve to do all I can to bring these guys to justice.

I want to kick some butt.

Chapter 47: Stuck at Home

GABY: BOOK 2 Summer Girl*Part 73 Race Ready

"What are you three up to?"

"Nothing!" Bernie told me

"Hmm" I didn't believe them

"Are you finished polishing that thing yet?" Mad asked

"Er yeah" I guiltily stopped my rubbing

"Come on Drew, you need a warm up before the start" Dad advised

"Yes Dad" I rolled my eyes at the girls

Mad slapped my bum as I passed

"Get orf!"

"Well it's nice" she stated

"See you in a bit" Ally mentioned

"Yeah"

"Good luck" Mad added

"Thanks"
