"No, hon. No one's in there."
A brief silence, follwed by. "EE! Mimi, Mimi, someone in baffroom!"
Oh for love of Pete... I get up to open the bathroom door for him and let him peek around to see there's no one in the house but us, when all the sudden I turn around and there is this huge honkin' SHADOW falling over the front curtains, and I can see through the thin fabric that someone is OPENING.THE.EFFING.DOOR.
Hubby steps into the doorway with an expression on his face that says I've clearly lost my mind. "I didn't feel well," he told me. "So I came home."
Well, gee. Thanks for the call.
Hm. I guess Mini heard something after all. Only it wasn't in the baffroom. It was outside his bedroom wall - the Jeep pulling up into the yard. Next time I vow to listen. Really, I will.
Aside from that, I managed to clean up a chunk of Chapter One that has been bugging me since I started writing the contemporary. It turned out better than I thought, it's definitely less mechanical sounding when I read it. Just a bit more tweaking and I'll be ready to fork it over to my crit partner and her red pen of doom.
