FRESH BEGINNINGS
We continue with Fresh Beginnings, Jared's story as he travels through five states
 in the US in a Motorhome. I used our itinerary from our US travels two years ago
 and wrote a romance story around in.
Jared has just arrived in the US.
Enjoy!

Ivy Bennett stormed into the back of the trailer. She'd had enough. More than enough. For the last five years, she'd lived in this small, forsaken place outside Las Vegas, surviving on the edge of existence. Her job as a waitress at the local bar paid well, but it was hard-earned money, and she was sick of her boyfriend drinking away almost every penny.
"What are you doing, Ivy?"
Her eyes narrowed furiously. "I'm leaving Dylan. I need more than this." She waved her hand in a circle around the inside of the trailer. "I deserve more than this," she added with emphasis.
"Honey," Dylan said gently as he reached out for her. "Let's talk about this." With a hardly noticeable move, he chucked the can of beer in the bin. "I'm having a bit of a low, but I need you to get through this."

  1. I hope she doesn't let him guilt her into staying. It's one of the oldest power games in the history of relationships.

  8. I've seen this happen so many times... She's GOT to leave, for her own health if nothing more. Five years isn't a "bit of a low", it's a pit.

  9. He is certainly manipulative and very charming - that makes him very dangerous. I hope she stays strong.

  10. So sorry for the delayed comment this week around. I've been playing catch up on Sunday Snippets.

    Already I feel don't like Dylan. He seems like a manipulative, sweet talking, self centered prick. Not a good combination at all. As Chelle said, it makes him dangerous. I hope she dumps his ass and moves on. She seems like a strong, independent woman to do so. Great snippet!
