Excerpt from So Says The River
As Willow opened the note, a knock tapped at her door.
“It’s just me, Willow.”
Willow walked the length of the long narrow room, saying, “Open,” which the door did. “Grandma?”
“You probably have lots to do, but let me take away your dishes and leave you with a teapot of lavender tea to soothe the nerves and strengthen them.” Grandma Rose held out the tray of teapot and fresh cup and saucer with crackers, nuts and sliced cheese on a lavender flowered plate.
“I love you, Grandma,”Willow smiled and took the tray. “This is perfect.”
Rose followed her in and stacked the dishes. “I’ll leave the wine— but save it for your snack plate later.”
“Just what I was thinking, Grandma.” Willow removed the items from the tray so Rose could carry the other items easily back to the kitchen. “Thanks so much.— Can I help you with anything?”
“No dear— just get back to your reflection.”
Willow nodded and hugged Rose who turned to leave. She turned back, “I’m still thinking on the problem of the dragons. One thing is for sure: I haven’t told you every thing; I was hoping you had more time.”
