Buon lunedì, prodi seguaci!🍄
Mentre continuo a fare strage di episodi di InuYasha e di zanzare, continuo con la lettura di All the Little Moments di G. Benson, che mi sembra molto carino per il momento, sono contenta di averlo scelto per la RHC.
Looking for a feeling of normalcy, Anna stopped in at a café on the way to the supermarket. A coffee in a café was something Anna lived for. With his Babycino in front of him, Toby made a mess of himself in seconds as Anna sipped her latte. She tried to ignore how people smiled at them as they threw Toby delighted looks, probably assuming they were mother and son. With their brunette hair, dimples, and bright blue eyes, it wasn’t surprising people made that connection. It was just so wrong. It felt like cheating to have people assume that she was his mother. Especially considering how torn she had been—still was—about taking the kids on.
It was a strange feeling, to want them around her so much, yet at the same time miss her old life. Anna craved her freedom. She’d lain in bed in the middle of the night, Ella’s knee in her back, and almost cried with how much she wanted to be back in her life of four months ago. Feeling hot, flushed, and completely pinned down, she’d gotten up to sit outside on the back step, gulping in cold air to try to calm herself down.
A successful anaesthetist, Anna is focused on herself, her career, and her girlfriend. Everything changes abruptly when her brother’s and sister-in-law’s deaths devastate her and her family. Left responsible for her young niece and nephew, Anna finds herself dumped and alone in Melbourne, a city she doesn’t even like. She tries to navigate the shock of looking after two children battling with their grief while managing her own.
Filled with self-doubt, Anna feels as if she’s making a mess of the entire thing, especially when she collides with a long-legged stranger. Anna barely has time to brush her teeth in the morning, let alone to date a woman—least of all one who has no idea about the two kids under her care.
Just when Anna finally starts to feel as if she’s getting some control of the situation, the biggest fight begins and Anna really has to step up once and for all.
