Blind or Stubborn?
“What a rotting mess.” Patrick tosses a stone and watches it skip across the water.
“I see you haven’t lost your touch.” Nora stares down the lake, arms wrapped around her.
He sighs and hurls another rock. “Bad idea.”
“Why? We can do this.” Her hands clench.
“This decaying dock is nothing compared to that cabin.”
“Are you blind or just stubborn?”
“I won’t plunk one silver dime into this dump.” Patrick stomps away.
Nora’s eyes leak salty drips. I’m not selling Daddy’s cottage. I’m not. It’s mine.
“I’m done. Coming?”
She stamps her feet. I’ll find a way.
