Jeri lives in Hobart where she owns a gallery. Since her divorce, many years ago, she's finally ready to "be" with a man again. But finding the right one seems to be harder than she thought.
Jeri heard the noise of Ely packing up his tools and everything inside her tensed. Shaking her head, she let out a sigh. She didn’t know him and couldn’t believe how much he’d occupied her thoughts the last couple of hours.
When the echoes of his steps in the hall brought her back from her thoughts, she stood and walked towards the door, hoping she didn’t make a fool of herself.
“I’m sorry, Ely.”
He stopped, and then shrugged. “No probs. You don’t need–”
Jeri shook her head. “It’s not that.” She let out a long breath. “By any chance, were you supposed to meet someone at the Main Street Restaurant?”
The change of expression on his face said it all. The smile disappeared and was replaced by a look of anguish.
She nodded. “Agree.”
Thank you all for your support and kind comments.
I do appreciate each single one of them!
