““You can feel it, can’t you?” Josh nodded. “It feels like a heavy covering was finally pulled off this town. Like warm, spring weather coming after a cold, hard winter.” Cassie sat back smiling. A few minutes later they pulled up in front of a quaint cottage style house. On either side of the front doors, the rectangular windows had flower boxes in bloom with bright colored flowers. The yard was well kept with numerous bushes. The whole placed had an inviting look to it. Josh parked but still sat behind the wheel. He looked over at Cassie. “You know, it’s funny but I’m almost sorry this whole thing is coming to an end. I feel like this is my last obligation.” Cassie shook her head. No Josh, obligations never end. This is just the end of a chapter in the story. Another book of obligations will come along and you’ll be starting over.” Josh looked at Cassie with admiration. He put out a finger and touched her cute button nose. “You are too smart for your own good. I think you’re pretty cute too.” Josh pulled out the keys and opened his door. “You just wait there a minute and I’ll come around.” Cassie nodded and put her hands in her lap. She felt like a schoolgirl who was trying to behave for the teacher. Josh opened her door and helped her down. He held out an elbow for her to hang on to. The two walked up the cobblestone walkway to the front door. Josh pushed the doorbell which played a short melody instead of the normal ring. A woman answered the door smiling when she saw who stood there. “Josh, Cassie, how good of you to come by.” She opened the door wider in invitation. Josh looked into her brown eyes and smiled. “Hello, Teresa. It took a little while, but I’m finally ready to give you that explanation I promised.” Teresa smiled. “Dottie would be pleased.” The door closed slowly as Cassie and Josh went in, ready to close the last chapter.”

I am a writer, blogger and radio host. I love to read and my love of books has lead me down this path. People tell me I write like Janet Evanovich. I take that as a compliment as I love her Plum books. I feel like Stephanie and Laura could be best friends.
