Chapter Three-- The Interview
review please! i love you guys! sorry i didn't update for soooo long. i hope this makes up for it!
The carriage had arrived in Maryland and Sarah, James, and the cartdriver had stepped out of the car. They were taken right to the camp where General Washington was settled.
"He might be in that tent over there, let's go." James said.
Sarah and James walked side by side, witnessing the soldiers eat their meals. Their rather small meals. "Oh, that's horrible…" Sarah whispered, as she saw their torn up shoes and thin blankets, trying to stay warm in the cold, winter weather.
The two of them dinged the bell out side of General Washington's tent.
"Who is it?" He called from the inside.
"James Hiller and Sarah Phillips, sir. From the Gazzette." Sarah replied.
"Oh, of course of course. Come on in."
James and Sarah stepped in cautiously, not really knowing what to expect. He was sitting at his desk, there were a few papers, a pen, and a very small cot in the corner. His tent wasn't any nicer than those of the soldiers camp.
"We just have a few questions to ask you, Mr. Washington." James told him as he took out his notepad, and Sarah took out hers.

(Sarah and James are back in the carriage)
"General Washington seemed like such a humble person, it's such a shame he has to go through all those hard times that he does." Sarah said.
James replied, "It's true. I'm glad we got to talk to him."
Sarah yawned. It was in the wee hours of the morning, and she was getting tired. Sarah was a morning person, so she doesn't really stay up late.
"James… I'm tired. Wake we me when we get there, please."
He looked over at her and she was already leaning over, slumbering on his shoulder.
She's so peaceful when she's sleeping… James thought to himself. To him, she was perfect in every way… even if she was a British loyalist. Differences didn't really matter to James right now. He was glad to be alone with her.
As Sarah was sleeping, she was being thankful for being able to with James, the one person she could ever manage to love as much as she does. Soon, she fell into a peaceful dream.
i know you're just ITCHING TO REVIEW, right? xD
