Dirt Bike Jousting, Squobbing, & Last 200 Words

Quick highlights from the last few weeks:

  • I went to a party on Mother's Day weekend held by my sister's neighbor. He has a bazillion acres, which means in addition to all the normal party stuff (such as an open bar and catered tacos), there was also zip-lining, Whore Shoes (like Horse Shoes but with spiked stilettos and some interesting rules), and THIS: 

Welcome to the world of dirt bike jousting, where hillbilly meets class. 
(Kind of like me when I wear a dress).
  • Trin is in the midst of all her graduating-stuff right now, which means I'm in a state of squealing and sobbing...squobbing? Yep, I'm a big fat squobber. Prom, Grad Night, and then the graduation itself. My baby girl!
  • I'm finally having a housewarming party. Er--if you can even call it that given that we've lived in our home for over nine months now. Here's the invitation:

Alright, that's enough recapping for now. Here's the last 200 words for Black Lilies, chapter three.

“By God, sweet girl, you can see me.” His lips spread into a triumphant smile, and then he glided past my desk. “We’ll discuss this after your mathematics lesson.”

I swallowed hard, my hands clutching the side of my desk, my stomach stuck somewhere in my throat.
Mathematics lesson? I found myself lipping the phrase, though I knew his proper speech should be the least of my concerns.
“What’s wrong?” Brett whispered next to me two beats after the strange man had left, snapping me out of my trance as he touched my arm. “You look really pale, Viv.”
I already knew the answer, but I needed to be sure. “Brett, has anyone new been assigned to Rosa’s desk?”
“Not that I’m aware of,” he said, glancing in that direction. “It’s been empty since she moved. I saw you looking over there earlier. What’s up?”
A feeling of panic flooded me at Brett’s words. I couldn’t be the only one who was able to see and hear the oddly-dressed stranger. I couldn’t be. Because that would make me crazy.
Or it would mean I was seeing a ghost.

    1. You never hear of "dinner parties" anymore Krystal. I wish we lived in an era where those were still a thing! But yes, you should totally host one. It kind of reminds me of the murder mystery dinners we used to have at our house. We need to have another one of those soon.

      Yes, there's definitely a ghost. :)
