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!

"G'day!" He stared at her and for some reason something tugged at his heart. Not that he wanted that. He had no room for women, let alone American ones. They all were on earth to make life complicated. Mark was constantly running around for Sophie or Hope, even though Mark's wife was one in a million and little Hope was simply adorable, especially when she was asleep.

"Ya know it's dangerous to hitch a ride," he finally said when she was still quiet.

She stared at him for a moment, but then replied with the typical American twang in her voice. "I know you said something, but I have no idea what."

He chuckled. "It is dangerous to hitchhike," he repeated with exaggerated pronunciation.

The woman stepped a bit closer to the window. "Are you from Austria?"

He laughed aloud.

"Australia, I meant," she added, seemingly embarrassed by the mistake.

  2. I don't think she is as confused by his Australian accent as she is flustered by his looks, lol. Austria, Australia, eh, just a few miles apart... Enjoyable snippet.

  3. lol- I got a kick out her being so flustered. I'm with Chelle. I believe it was his good looks that flustered her and not his accent. Great scene.

  8. This one was funny, she seems to typically American. But is he married? That would be back luck for her.

    1. I'm glad you're saying she sounds American. It's often hard to "show" the difference in nationalities w/out going too much into clichés. Thanks Linda.
