Here's another little snippet.

THANK YOU

Advice is what we ask for when we already 
know the answer, but wish we didn't.”




 Emma sighed inwardly. In her early twenties and she still lacked confidence in what other people thought of her. Tucking an escaping strand of her tawny hair behind her ear, she tried to keep a positive attitude because, after all, she loved working at the All Stars Hotel in Melbourne. It was something she always wanted to do—to greet people to this beautiful city, and make their stay as comfortable as possible. And she was often told how popular she was with staff and guests alike for her positive attitude, her generous heart, and kind spirit.
“Ma’am, that’d be room five-o-two. If you go to the right over there, take the lift to the fifth floor and follow the hall to the near end, you will find room five-o-two on your right.”
Teresa Gibbs took the card from Emma and turned it in her hands.
“Ma’am, you slide that into the door instead of a key. I’m happy to ask someone to come with you and show–”
“I’ll be fine. Thank you.” And Mrs. Gibbs turned to go.
Emma leaned across the counter and smiled at Nadine. “Enjoy your holidays,” she said and winked. “And come see me sometime to tell me about the tooth fairy.”
“We’re not on a holiday,” the girl said in almost a whisper. “We’re here to meet my dad.”

  4. Mrs. Gibbs really is a cold one, isn't she? Or just burned out? Great snippet -- sets up what's to come.

  5. I always enjoy behind the scenes stories, and it'll be fascinating to have more glimpses of the hotel's inner workings, via Emma. And I so want to know what's going on with the poor little girl - great snippet!

  9. First off: I LOVE this quote! “Advice is what we ask for when we already know the answer, but wish we didn't.”

    Then onto the snippet...

    Plot twist at the end! I wonder if meeting this father is the reason Mrs. Gibbs is such a sourpuss. Can't wait to find out next week on that. I love how she sounds like she's trying to remind herself why she loves her job when she crosses people like Mrs. Gibbs. I know I do the same with my job. LOL.
