SO.... for those who know me, know I love to write. And One of my proudest accomplishments was writing a novel. No I didnt submit it anywhere, nobody has read it. But I went through and thought that I might as well publish one chapter here for anyone who wants to give it a read!! Here is Chapter 5 of my novel "Sun Hats"
"Back at the Mollee’s, Mrs. Mollee and Mr.Cooper Mollee, are being more Scottish than usual. Its their schtick. Whenever tourists are in town, they really sell their charm and get massively scottish (if that's even a thing) and they rake in the cash. rumors spread on the beach’s about “That Scottish couple running the little market up the road.” Last year, they had lines trying to get in. and it seems to be the same this year.
“I have a question now.” I cross my arms staying put in my seat. this seems to catch Danny off guard because he sits up straight and cock his head to the side.
“What is it?”
“Where's my cereal you meant to drop off?”
We both laugh but i still do want my cereal. it is truly my most favorite food, probably in the whole world. Like you can eat it as a snack, lunch, dinner, and if you're like me nearly every meal of the day.
“I really do want my cereal.” i whisper to Danny and he gives me a serious look.
“Then cereal you should have.”
He just about jumps out of the car, and storms with me close behind. and his scottish accent that i had just about forgotten comes barreling back in full force. “Get out me way! i have cereal to purchase!!” The line outside the store all giggle and let us right by. Danny quite literally clears a path through the tiny shop to the cereal aisle. “My lovely lady, pick whatever you like. It's on me!” The whole store is quiet watching this odd situation unfold. Even Mrs.Mollee has stopped cashing out a customer to watch. a big grin on her face. Usually i would be afraid of being recognized but at this point, well, i don't really care. I pick my four favorites off the shelf and wrap my arms tightly around them when Danny lowers his lips down to my ear, “I still have yours in the trunk of my car.”
I giggle again like a child and we go back out of the crowd and to his car where now there is a total of seven boxes of cereal for me. i'm stocked for a while.
“Okay.” Danny sighs and leans on the top of the car looking at me directly in the eyes. “It's not my place to say anything. But love, does one girl really need seven boxes of cereal?”
i break a grin, “Yes. yes she does. I mean i wouldn't mind help eating all of it…”
Danny looks intrigued now. “Help you say?” he thinks, “Now where are you going to find a nice young man to come accompany you to eat your cereal.”
“I'm just hoping one shows up at my house wednesday. let's say 7?” " (DeRosia)
