If you hadn’t noticed, there’s a lot of fan art by Maddy just for this scene. Who knew one sentence could be worth a thousand pictures!

Notes

Maddy had a brilliant idea to come up with some of the family pictures that Max finds in her room in Chapter 1.10. I loved Maddy’s idea at the first mention. Thanks Maddy! You rock!

Excerpt

“I love you, Teddy!” Violeta said and gave Teddy a big hug.

“I love you too,” replied Teddy.

On the way to the bathroom, Max noticed that the twelve small, framed pictures on the wall were pictures that she had put out to trash with Teddy almost a year ago. She smiled. She wished she could give John’s father a hug and a kiss.

“You’re my angel!” she said to him in her thoughts. “My perfect angel from God!”

Three white Porsche Cayennes pulled up at La Boeme. John and Cristina got out of the first SUV. Lumi, Grace and George got out of the second SUV. It was like they were Hollywood stars. People stared.

They went into the restaurant and were seated at a reserved table. Max was their server and they liked her. She had been their server on several previous occasions. Max was very attentive. Cristina liked that.

“Hi, John and Cristina. Can I get you and your friends something to drink?” said Max as she walked up to their table. Read the rest of this entry »

Chapter 1.11.1

This is a continuation of the posts originally titled, An Untitled Novel About The Long Road of Hope.

[ Chapter 1.1 is here. ]

Noah was dressed in a black tuxedo. He and two other well dressed men stood when the ladies entered the restaurant.

“Thank you so much for joining us, ladies. You are sparkling jewels that light up the night. Tonight, I want to celebrate the return of our hope. Of our children…” said Noah.

“I give thanks to God with a joyful heart. And I want to welcome you home, ladies. We have long awaited your arrival with much anticipation.”

Noah introduced the ladies to Ambassador Henri St. Therese and Prince Mihail Sturza. Read the rest of this entry »


An Untitled Novel About the Road of Hope: Chapter 1.8

Chapter 1.8.1

[ Chapter 1.1 is here. ]

21 October 2023

Those who run the road of despair are driven by an unquenchable thirst for vengeance. It does not lead to freedom, regardless of any undeserved and fleeting victories that chance throws to us like a clean bone is thrown to dogs. That road runs to dead ends: slavery, self-deceit and defeat.

On the road of despair, never can there be enough. Nor peace. Neither forgiveness nor thanksgiving will fly from our heart or lips when we run that unfortunate and much traveled highway. But if thanks, praise and forgiveness never fly from our hearts and lips, neither will they fly to perch upon new blessings, new tomorrows and hope’s renewal.

On the road of despair, we only take possession of lesser treasures by force, deceit and theft: knick knacks, kitsch and all the other counterfeits of joy, love, and peaceful heart. But thieves, they never enjoy the hospitalities afforded to honored and cherished guests: generosity, kindness and love – among other good things.

Chapter 1.7.1

 …

John paid the daily pass at the entrance of Cismigiu Park next to the Cretulescu palace. Hachi was pulling at the leash – he needed to do some business.

They walked down the steps to the swan and duck pond. Looking around, John didn’t see any park guards, so he let Hachi off leash. Hachi stopped to bark at a flock of black swans making a commotion. Then he ran past the long line for the spring and disappeared.

“K- Message to Steve. Dad said that he’d love to do the speaking engagement. You know my account. Catch you laterz.”

“Ok. Sending message to Steve.”


“Incoming call from Zach…”

“Unc!”

John heard a commotion on the other side of the call. It sounded like cows, chickens and pigs. Read the rest of this entry »


An Untitled Novel About the Road of Hope: Chapter 1.3

April 20, 2011

Chapter 1.3.1

[ Chapter 1.1 is here. ]

Max and Grace missed their shots at the bare-footed man. Missing just didn’t make sense to them. They were all good shots.

“WTF!” texted Max and Grace!

“Tough audience!” observed the bare-footed man and laughed.

Zach and Eree lifted the barrels of their shotguns. At the same time, the bare-footed man lifted John off his feet and heaved John toward Eree.

The bare-footed man threw the bloody tanto at Daniel’s feet and pushed the barrel of Zach’s shotgun to the side as it went off. Daniel yelled out as the hot salt shot hit his hand as he reached for the tanto.

Motorcycles were getting around the burning wreckage. Lumi, Max and Grace gave cover fire.

“Let’s chat again. Soon!” Read the rest of this entry »
