[story] Adventures of Hannah episode 1

Episode 1

Hannah took a plate of chicken and salad

to the

living room and sat next to her mum.

“This looks great, mum. Thanks. ”

Her mother dismissed her gratitude with the

wave of a hand and leaned forward, her

brown

eyes dancing.

“So, don ‘t you want to know? ”

“Know what? ”

“What he ‘s like. The new neighbour. And

you ‘ll

note is say he, “her mother said.

“I don’t need to know. Hannah replied.

“Hannah! I thought he seemed very nice

when

I popped in earlier. His mother was helping

him

unpack, you know, and there was no sign of

a

wife. ”

Hannah scooped up a spoonful of potato

salad.

She could feel her mother watching her,

waiting for Hannah’s reaction. She

concentrated on her plate, hoping her

mother

would get the hint.

Her mother eyed her steadily, her face

creased

with concern.

“Don’t be like this, sweetheart. ”

Hannah stood. There was no way she could

eat

the rest of her meal. She certainly couldn’t

endure another heart -to- heart with her

mother.

“I need a shower. Thanks for cooking. ”

She scraped the remainder of her dinner

into

the garbage, rinsed her plate and slid into

the

dish washer. She spent ten minutes in the

shower, washing and conditioning her hair

and

shaving under her arms. All the while, she

reviewed the work she had tomorrow,

prioritizing things on her to do list.

Anything to

avoid thinking about what her mother had

been

suggesting.

Hannah was supposed to catch up with her

friend Mikey for dinner after work, but he

cancelled on her at the last minute, leaving

het

at loose ends.

She decided to go home. She was hungry

and

more than ready for a shower when she

rode

intothe street. She stopped short of pulling

into

hermothers garage, however, her attention

caught by the car sitting in the drive way —

A

Mazda SUV. She narrowed her eyes as she

surveyed the rear of the SUV, then dropped

into a squat to peer under the wheel arch.

“I assume you wont be billing me for this

inspection? ”

She started, then glanced over her shoulder,

Joe Lawson, her new neighbour stood there,

one eyebrow raised. Her gaze dropped to

his

barefeet. No wonder she hadn’t heard him

sneak up on her.

He shut the back of the car with a firm

click.

The grocery bag settled in his hand. She

realized she was hovering for no good

reason

whatsoever.

“Anyway “, she said

“Yeah ”

“see you around. ”

He didn’t bother responding. He headed

towards his house. She watched his

shoulders

rock from side to side with his long stride,

then

her gaze dropped on his butt. His jeans

were

faded and soft and they molded his

butt0ckz

faithfully. It was a good butt0ckz too. firm

looking,

round. Quintessential male.

Hannah registered what she was doing and

swiveled on her heel. Who cared if he has a

nice

butt0ckz

As Joe got to his apartment, a reluctant

smile

curved his mouth. Hannah was a handful.

He ‘d

got that much right about her. And despite

that, he wanted her.

The realization killed his smile. He hadn ‘t

felt a

thing for another woman since his wife Beth

died, yet for some crazy reason every time

he

looked at his new neighbour he found

himself

thinking things he had no business

thinking.
