june 3words – day 12 of 30

Today’s words are: PRETEND – MENTAL – PLACE.

My ongoing story:

 

Laura grabbed his hand and squeezed, smiling. Teeny wasn’t sure why, but let her hold it for a moment, then withdrew it, pretending to need it.

He said, “She has a friend who lives in one of these houses that backs onto us, doesn’t she?”

Laura snorted out a laugh. “She did when I was growing up. Used to drive my dad mental.” She shook her head slowly. “He was convinced she was sleeping him. George. That was her friend.” She pointed to one of the gates.

“Well, then,” Teeny nodded. “That’s as good a place to start as any.”
