Laurel Crowned Princess, Chapter 8-'Over the Mountains and Thru the Woods...'

I turned around, and I saw ‘myself’ walking, somewhat nervously, but purposefully towards the driveway of their house.

During this time my family lived in a house just down the street from my grandparents. I frequently walked to their house, so this wouldn’t have been unusual.

“I was pretty high strung back then.”

“Yes, but as I remember, you were particulary high strung on this day.”

“Really? What about?”

“You’ll see.”

After ‘I’ walked into the house, Grandpa and I followed. Grandpa walked a lot faster than what I remembered, much like what my dad said he had walked when he was younger.

When we got into the living room, we saw ‘me’ and Memaw talking. I couldn’t quite make out everything they were saying, but it had to do with making a long distance phone call and Memaw offering to pay for it.

“Wait, I think I know what this is about. I…don’t…really…want to see this.”

“I came all the way back here for this. It’s wonderful up there. You are going to sit still and watch.”
