THE SECRET LIFE OF LADY GABRIELLA


From Liz...

Ben, Ben, Ben....

What do you want me to say? Your sister had better things to do than worry about your house. She has a career, too. (She’s in Samoa, by the way.)

And you didn’t expect Mrs Fuller to stick around and polish your knick-knacks when she could be putting her feet up in the sun for the first time in her life, did you?

And try to forget that unfortunate accident in the library which, by the way, was as much your fault as hers. Be honest. Admit that Ellie makes the place feel like home. How long is it since you could say that, hmm?

So, the answer to your question is yes, Ben, I expect you to be grateful. Very grateful.

Now stop whining and go and buy Ellie something warm and furry -- you know it makes sense!

And leave me to get on with writing Sylvie and Tom's story!

Oh, Ben, I think Liz has your number. You'd better stop complaining and do what she says. What are you going to get Ellie that's warm and furry?

ps: I pre-ordered your book on Amazon yesterday. It going to come right after I finish (God willing) my current book. I can hardly wait!

Anne, you're no comfort! Now, if you don't mind I've got a hutch to build. For Roger. And Nigel...

Ellie said...

Thanks, Anne. Ben looks so hot without his shirt...

Now if I can just convince him that he needs a dog...
