It's fun having cross over characters and the scene I've just finished features Peggy and Zoe. Peggy and Kent are having some trouble and Zoe is trying to get them back together. Here's a peek--(still in rough form)
Peggy was sitting by herself, staring into her cup in a way that made me wonder if tea leaves really could predict the future. She glanced up when I walked in and judging by the way she sat on the edge of the chair, I figured she'd picked a spot near the door so she could run out quickly if she needed to.
The first thing she said to me after I'd gotten my coffee and sat down across from her was "I think this is a terrible idea."
"Why?" I concentrated on stirring sugar into my coffee. It was a dumb question, I already knew the answer.
"Did you want to interview me for one of those blogs? You want to write one about me and Kent?"
This wasn't something I had even considered and the question caught me so far off guard that I stopped stirring and stared at her. "I have plenty of stories to pick from, so no I wasn't planning on writing about you."
Peggy sat back in the chair. "Well, good." Maybe she wouldn't run out after all.
"It's just..." I wanted to choose my words carefully, but there wasn't any careful way to say it. "Grandpa sounded miserable and he was so happy with you. I don't understand why you'd take a break."
