Saturday Centus: Family Drama Part 14


At last Kat pulled into the driveway. Weary from the flight and now this long drive, she was glad to arrive. The house had been in her grandmother's family for generations, and she always felt waves of nostalgia coming here.
Though all she really wanted was a martini and a couch, Kat knew that procrastination was not her friend so she headed for the attic. She lifted the stack of letters from the ancient chest and couldn't help but smile. A tribute to their long friendship, the letters from Russ were a treasure. They'd both learned that going back to the beginning was best, so she opened the first one.

It's Saturday Centus. Head over to Jenny's if you want to play along. You get up to 100 words past the prompt (bold italic above). I'm competitive, that' why mine is a continuing story. Judie supplied the prompt this week. Thanks SO much Judie for a “normal” prompt. I swear Jenny's trying to stop me ;-) If you need to catch up, put Family Drama in my search gadget. Or if you only need last week, it's here.

I am new to the Centus but had the same thought in my head - that a continuing story would be a fun, private challenge. I love that you are doing this! I am going to go back and read your other entries to "catch up" - I'm intrigued just with your story here.
I am also your newest follower :-D

I bet you breathed a sigh of relief when you read the prompt this week :) Interesting, we both went back to old family homes this week. Quite different directions though! Kat

Oh boy, I hope we find out more about Russ. Maybe some day he will show up in person even, ha. Great job with the continuation as usual.

New here and I need to read the beginning of this ongoing story but I feel the characters are interesting and draw me in even joining at this point.

Fabulous job! Loved this. You think I was trying to stump you before...wait until you see this weeks extra shaking up, shake up!

I think it will be fun and silly, though!

Love how you're tying this together!
