The Crash

The Crash

I sit quietly reading in the shady area deep in the back yard. I vaguely hear a loud crash of metal on metal, but continue reading. I am more interested in my book than all the noise and yelling coming from the front yard.

I become aware someone has come around to the back yard. I realize it is Mrs. King from next door. I can barely recognize her with the tears running down her face.

She runs to me and grabs me in a hug and cries out, “Oh you poor orphan! You must come with me now.”




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.

    I was so happy to see a post from you – didn’t realize it had been so long! Keep going 🙂

    That would be so disorienting to be interrupted from a read with those words! (I know how engrossed one can get in a book… if I’m into one the kids have to try really hard to get my attention 🙂 )

    It is an amazing start for a book. I actually felt like I was reading one. You should keep going, take your time.

    (So glad to see you in my email! )

      Thank you Barbara! I am trying. Nothing in my mind at the moment. I am looking at all the prompts and reading some of the others seeing if it stirs something into a piece.
