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 stared after the green car she had exited in a hurry only seconds earlier. Creepy was a word that came to mind when she thought about the driver. Creepy, eerie, and all the other foul-language words under the sun. The old man had given her a lift into downtown Las Vegas and had offered her to take a bit further towards east. She had really appreciated his help. That was until his hand was on her leg. Persistently, even after she had nicely told him she wasn't that kind of girl. A shiver ran down her spine merely at the thought. She guessed he'd have been in his seventies.

Leaving Dylan had been the easy part, but, with only a few dollars in her purse, getting to as far east as possible was the hard part.

  1. I hope Ivy will be all right. I hope that creepy old guy doesn't circle back.

  2. Oh, ugh, poor Ivy. First steps can be easy, but the next ones are usually tougher. :P

    Very good scene, Iris! :)

  4. Well that WAS creepy. She's lucky the old man didn't pursue her. Seems she's a bit naive...Will be interesting to see what she does next and how she meets Jared!

  5. That is indeed a creepy encounter. Just what she doesn't need on top of everything else. Good snippet.

  6. Oh my god! Old guys can be so insistent. I hope he won't come back with flowers.

  7. I can personally say I know how she feels. Creepy is not a good enough description for it. I've had an old guy hit on me at work, more than once the same guy.

    Great snippet. The beginning is always easy, its the rest that's a rocky road ahead.
