Just Beyond My Reach 38 Part 2I leaned back against the wall, both of my hands rubbing my face. Not today either. How many days had I expected to find myself in the clear? Had it been four now? My stomach was twisting with sudden angst and worry, making me feel sick. Sighing, I let my hands fall back against my hair, latching onto the back of my neck as I leaned my head back against the wall. I couldn't be one hundred percent positive, but the signs were pointing all in the same direction. I had to tell someone, didn't I?
Oh God! I couldn't tell Ezio! Knowing him and his lifestyle, wouldn't he be devastated? Mario wouldn't be able to help me, and would probably make it more stressful for me. Claudia was gone, but she would have probably made me freak out because her reaction would be much too dramatic. I guessed that left Maria, although I felt shy to go and tell her, like I had done wrong, or maybe that she wouldn't approve. But maybe she would be happy? Sad? Even excited? But wait, what if she got angry? I don't
Just Beyond My Reach 38 Part 1Chapter 38: You're What?
The sweat dripped down the back of my neck, my breaths falling in small huffs through my lips, the heat all of a sudden too much, feeling like I was about to pass out as I threw my head back to move the sweaty hair from my eyes.
"Oh my God," I moaned loudly. "It's so hot!"
"I know," Ezio huffed back, his cheeks flushed.
"Are you almost done?" I asked, looking into his golden eyes.
"Yeah," he hummed, his muscles in his arms flexing as he pressed his fingertips against the wall. "Yeah, give me a few more minutes."
"Well hurry up!" I snapped, aggravated. "I finished up forever ago!"
"Narina!" Ezio growled back. "Stop antagonizing me! It's not going to fix this hole."
Pouting, I flopped back down on the roof, closing my eyes against the hot sun. The Villa's structure had finally given in and a large hole had fallen through the roof on the east side of the house. Mario sent Ezio and I to fix it. Well, he actually sent Ezio to fix it, but I insisted on helping. I rea
Just Beyond My Reach 37Chapter 37: A Dozen Years
When I rolled over in the bed, intent on finding myself laying upon Ezio, I was shocked to find myself still on the bed. Groaning, I pushed myself up and rubbed my eyes, wondering where my morning buddy was at. I didn't hear him get out of bed, which was weird because I usually did. After a minute of staring blankly at the empty pillow, I managed to climb out of bed and climb down the ladder to go downstairs. As I walked through the halls, I figured that Ezio would be down in the kitchen getting breakfast, so I headed to the ground level of the house. When I got to the top of the stairs, however, I was surprised to see all of the house staff running about the house in a flurry.
What was going on?
I descended the stairs, trying to get the attention of one of the bustling people, but none of them would pay me any mind. Giving up, I decided to look for the family, dodging all of the people. I managed to get to the hall that led to the dining room, and in that hal
PetalsThe grass tickled between her toes as her father toiled away with the roses by the letterbox. She watched his fingers weave between the thorns to pat the soil around each bush, humming to some John Lennon song she couldn't put a name to. Despite the sun just tipping the horizon, she saw sweat prickling his brow and his eyes squinting against the light. The fine lines on his face were suddenly accentuated by shadow, and for a moment, she swelled with wonder.
'Maria, come here,' he said, waving her over. 'You're not going to learn anything sitting all the way over there.'
Excitement sparked her limbs into motion, and she crawled over to sit next to him, careful to tuck her skirt beneath her thighs to avoid the dirt.
He picked up a pair of clippers from beside him. 'Now, you need to snipe back these diseased parts here and there from the base of the plant. It helps it grow better.'
Snipping off two pieces of wood with ease, he deposited them in Maria's outstretched hand. Their rough textu
