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



I've moved forward a little ... Flynn McCormack is now sitting in the 
hotel cafe with Teresa and William Gibbs. This is the start of their conversation.


Flynn had liked her <Sarah> from the first day he had seen her in high school after he            had moved to Launceston with his parents. Her brown curly hair, the freckles she had
desperately tried to cover with make-up. And her smile! He had never forgotten her
smile.
“How’re you going, Will?”
“I can’t complain, son,” William smiled. “I retired last year and I’m glad we’re                          having–”
“William!” Teresa interrupted in a harsh voice.
Flynn’s mouth curved into a bitter smile as he shook his head. Nothing had changed
between these two people. “Retired, eh?”
William nodded, but it seemed he knew better than to say anything else. They all
watched the waiter as he placed another tray of tea onto the table. William dunked                 the teabag a few times, then took a sip. “You seem to be doing well, son.”
Flynn choked back a chuckle, and echoed the same sentiment. “Can’t complain.”
“Well,” Teresa interrupted. “We haven’t got all day, and we have to get back to the
room soon.”
“Suits me fine.” Flynn replied nonchalantly.
“We need to talk to you about Sarah.”
Flynn’s eyebrows shot up as he turned to her. She had his attention. “How is Saz?”

  3. Wow, Teresa wants to get straight to the point, she is not very friendly. I don't think I would like to be interrupted like that. I guess William must be used to it.

  4. I'm not much for small talk and I'm all for getting straight to the point, but she takes it to extremes, doesn't she?

  6. Teresa annoys the daylights out of me, but that's her purpose. I'm intrigued what's now wrong with Sarah in her estimation. Good snippet, Iris.

  8. I want to know about Sarah! Captured a great sense of a slightly awkward conversation with lots going unsaid, which makes Teresa's sudden outburst all the more abrupt.
