Julia says the prompt wrote itself after last weeks. As I only just wrote week 75 I decided to continue where I left off.
On Time part 2
She was entranced by you from the start; my daughter, usually so reticent, actually allowed you to take her hand. In the café Macey giggled with a child on the next table, and you, well you didn’t seem to know who to look at first.
She is mine isn’t she? You asked, squeezing my hand. If I’d wanted to keep it secret I would have. I caught Macey looking from you to me, and back again, wondering.
You gradually moved into our lives from that day, but I can’t help asking myself what’s beneath the surface? Did you choose both of us or Macey?

Lovely tale. But with a little sting. You used the prompt excellently
You always have a lovely way with words….. She has been left with doubt about his intentions – not a nice place to be.
Oh, this is perfect, Gilly! Great second chapter. And I’m glad you did this, because when I read the first one, I felt so disappointed that it couldn’t continue.
Wonderful Gilly! She will never know….or will she?
such a subtle sting … who could resist a child … but he did come to the meeting without knowing … hmmmm 🙂
I goot lost looking for part 1, but liked the way you used the 2nd person, though the ending was very, very discomforting – as it was meant to be!
There’s a whole novel encapsulated here. Beautifully done.
Excellent continuation, Gilly.
Heartwarming, authentic, lovely to read. This is WONDERFUL, Gilly. Wonderful.
Wonderful. I am guessing at more hidden underneath
Lovely piece, great use of the prompt and nice follow on from last week (I just went back to read!). Will there be more…?
Oh this is good Gilly…I want more
I had to go back and read part one after reading this. A beautiful story and really touchingly told.
This is really good. I wanted to read more!
