Coming soon....

What Happens with Vegas...

“Okay, break it up, break it up – who was on the field?”
Some creep had ratted on us immediately, I’ll bet it was Gordon Menzies – he was one of David Meakin’s best mates. David turned, spitting blood out of his mouth, “It was Tyler Barton – and Vegas McKenzie, although he didn’t really do anything….”
My jaw dropped. The freaking liar – he started it.
Mr Warner turned to Tyler immediately – no one would have ever expected me to hit anyone, but him… well, Tyler was Tyler. “Tyler,” he said with a long-suffering sigh, “What were you doing on the field?”
We all turned and watched as David Meakin was led away blood dripping down his school jumper.
“We were just talking, sir.” he answered with the hint of laughter in his voice.
Mr Warner wasn’t stupid. He looked it… but he wasn’t. “Let me see your hands, Tyler.”
He sighed and held them up, palms up. Mr Warner raised his eyebrows, beginning to look a little harassed. Tyler always had to push it. It was what made him such fun, “Turn them over.”
He eventually turned them over and I winced slightly as I saw the same as he and Mr Warner did; red knuckles from battering David about senseless.
“Talking?” Mr Warner asked, the corners of his mouth twitching slightly.
Tyler nodded, “It was a bit of a heated debate, sir…” he said, looking as though he was going to burst with the effort of not laughing out loud any second.
Mr Warner sighed and nodded towards the school, “I’m afraid it’s the headmaster’s office for you.”
Tyler nodded and sighed, “Fine.” He said. He put his head down and started the walk of shame back up to the school.
“Can I go with him?” I asked.
Mr Warner nodded, “Were you involved?”
I shrugged, “I could have stopped it.” I admitted.
“Go on – he needs someone like you.”
I eventually caught up with him, Tyler’s got long legs, “Sorry, mate.” I said and slapped him on the back.
He shook his head at me, “What was I supposed to do?” He asked, “Let him hit you?”
I frowned at him, “I think I could have taken him.” I offered.

He raised his eyebrows and shrugged, “Maybe,” he agreed, flashing me a grin, “but it’s what I do best.” he said, “And he deserved it.”

Tyler's safe...

Phew! Got my Mac back - and everything was safe.... Tyler will therefore be on his way very soon - just got some final editing to do - making sure it all fits in with the next one - What Happens with Vegas... and he'll be released to the world in all his swearing and tattooed glory.... Can't wait!

Bit of an issue....

Call me an idiot by all means - I've been beating myself up all day and all night..
I was happily editing The Trouble with Tyler yesterday afternoon when I decided to have a short break... I placed my laptop down (as I do every day) and popped into the kitchen, came back with a drink put that down, picked up my laptop - nothing. Dead as a doornail - would not switch back on, red hot to touch - gone....
This is the real issue though - I'm a bit of a dreamer, a little bit dozy and I hadn't backed it up since May... well, as you can imagine I have the first chapter of Tyler saved and nothing else. So - might be a bit of delay on the release - hopefully it's not going to be a major disaster - and hopefully when the techy guys have finished with it all my stuff will still be there - but I've been here before two years ago - and yes, you really would think I'd be more careful - but I'm Heather...
Deep mournful sigh... Just thought I'd share...

If it's hot, hot, hot where you are....

Take a dip in the water....

Sophie and her family are different. They keep themselves to themselves and try their best to blend in with the regular humans around them; it isn't always easy but they do their best...
That is until Cody Conner and his family come to their town and Cody decides that Sophie is someone he really doesn't want to live without.
With his stunning good looks, she thinks he's just making fun of her. After all; in her opinion she's mousy and cute at best... but when she realises that she can hear his thoughts in her own head, it dawns on her that maybe they are more compatible than she could ever imagine....
