Time Gone By – Part 11 – Science Fiction

This is a work of fiction. By the time the others returned, it was time for Andy to take Steven and Dan back to their cabin for one last night.

This is a work of fiction. I didn’t let the boys sleep in, and at first, I took Freckles’s silence for tiredness. Therefore, I was expecting him to complain loudly when I asked him to help with the dishes, but he didn’t. “Grandma,” he said, “can I talk to you about something?” “Yes, of course.”Continue reading “Time Gone By – Part 7 – Science Fiction”
