~~ I've moved forward a few lines. This is the afternoon after last week's dream ~~

After Hollie parked her car in a nice shady spot, she and Alex grabbed their bags. They spotted Ben coming towards them.
Hollie rolled her eyes—he was wearing bright orange and white board shorts, his dark brown AC/DC T-shirt, and well-worn sandals. She sometimes wondered how he could hold a job as primary teacher, but the kids loved him.
“Hello, mister,” Alex greeted him with a quick wave and a hint of flirt  in her voice.
He acknowledged the girls with kisses on their cheeks. “How’re things?”
“You’re early, considering you’ve had to come all the way from Devonport.”
With a boyish smile, he replied, “I stayed at Davo’s last night. I was supposed to stay at Mum and Dad’s, but that last beer was just one too many.”
“Doesn’t sound like you at all to have a beer too many.” Hollie handed him one of the bags for the barbeque and noticed Alex staring at him. She waved a hand in front of her face. “Hey, earth to Alex.”
Alex rolled her eyes and quickly grabbed one of the bags.
Ben moved a bit closer to Hollie. “Hey, just to let you know, Jeremy is here as well. He apologised to Davo all week, and the old man finally gave in and let him come when he promised to leave you be, or at least apologise to you,” he said quietly.
Hollie stood up straight. “You’re kidding me.” With a few words, her anticipation for the party dissolved in an instant. She swallowed her misery.

  5. I like Ben. Great work on Hollie's reaction. I think I'd be tempted to tell Alex to call her when it was over and she'd come pick her up.

    1. I liked "writing" Ben. I often wonder whether he should get his own story :-) Thanks PT.

  7. I think the kids love Ben because they can relate to him, or him to them. Very relaxed and carefree. Good descriptions.
