A Small Little Town

This small town rarely bustled with people; always so quiet and peaceful. Coming from the life in the city, people though I was crazy for moving to a place only reachable by horse carts.

I rest my elbow on the counter of my café. It was almost opening time but not a lot of people would be coming in today. Bad for business, my family would say. Perhaps they were right.

"Good morning."

I felt a gentle kiss on my cheek. Laney smiled at me as she tied her apron around her waist.

Nevermind. I'm happy where I am now


Finally I've decided to take this challenge and write about Howard. He's a lovely character. I will write my own thoughts on Laney's mother in later chapters. Written as Howard's POV.
