“Where did they go?

Jenny looked to John Barker, the cowboy. This was all his fault. He distracted her and the boys disappeared again.

“Look Jenny, they can’t have gone far. Wait here and I will ride over to the ruins just in case they got curious and went in and got lost.” John got to the old ruins on the other side of the property. He dismounted and disappeared inside one of the openings.

She watched John lead the boys out of the ruin and put them both on his horse and led them back. “They were lost in there! I doubt they will do that again.”

“Don’t you ever do that again! No more hide and seek.”

“We’re sorry!”

“John, I have to get these two home and cleaned up before their parents arrive home or I just might be a nanny without a job.”

About Tessa

My name is Tessa Dean and I am an author and blogger. My writing styles vary and I love writing using prompts. I am also writing my first book, a Memoir entitled "Government Property - A Memoir of a Military Wife".  This is being published on the blog rather than the traditional way. I am putting up chapters as I go along. I keep my blog filled with useful content, stories, and poems. Plenty to keep you busy. I have also been interviewed by blogs and had other posts published on many different blogs. I also wrote a series of articles on Bipolar Disorder for IBPF (International Bipolar Foundation). I am in my 60’s and disabled which allows me plenty of time to write to my heart’s content. I live in southern New Jersey and have 3 children and 5 grandchildren. My oldest grandchild is a Sargent in the United States Marine Corps.
