I’d love to see the loft – #fridayfiction

Annie sighs. “How wonderful.” She is remembering the diamond earrings, and they are a poor comparison to the skylight Ophelia has described.

“I’d love to see the loft,” she says.

The thought of sharing her greatest treasure pleases Ophelia. She rises from her chair and motions for Annie to follow.

Ophelia leads the way up the staircase. Although she is slow, it somehow seems more fitting that she crosses the threshold first. Annie follows two stair treads behind. Anxious as she is to see the room, a tiny prickle of fear tugs at her heels and warns that she is about to step into the memories of another person.

If it is true that good memories can reveal themselves to someone else, she knows this is the time and place where it will happen.

About the author

Bette Lee Crosby

USA Today Bestselling and Award-winning novelist Bette Lee Crosby's books are "Well-crafted storytelling populated by memorable characters caught up in equally memorable circumstances." - Midwest Book Review The Seattle Post Intelligencer says Crosby's writing is, "A quirky mix of Southern flair, serious thoughts about important things in life and madcap adventures." Samantha from Reader's Favorite raves, "Crosby writes the type of book you can't stop thinking about long after you put it down." "Storytelling is in my blood," Crosby laughingly admits, "My mom was not a writer, but she was a captivating storyteller, so I find myself using bits and pieces of her voice in most everything I write." It is the wit and wisdom of that Southern Mama Crosby brings to her works of fiction; the result is a delightful blend of humor, mystery and romance along with a cast of quirky charters who will steal your heart away. Her work was first recognized in 2006 when she received The National League of American Pen Women Award for a then unpublished manuscript. She has since gone on to win nineteen awards for her work; these include: TheRoyal Palm Literary Award, the FPA President's Book Award Gold Medal, Reader's Favorite Award Gold Medal, and the Reviewer's Choice Award.
