My plan for the A - Z Challenge is to write every post as if it were a diary entry by a character from my WIP. Today's post comes from Freya Phillips.
Living alone was something I always loved. Having somewhere quiet to go at the end of the day is something I really need after coaching sweaty, noisy soccer players all day.
When Richard suggested Leah move in with me, I was a little nervous about sharing my space with a stranger. But when I met her, right away, I could tell she'd be an ideal person to live with. She's actually quieter than me, so for once, I feel like the loud one!
I'm not unsociable or anything, far from it, I love to party and be with my friends. But some days I just need to chill out on the balcony, looking out at the ocean. Leah loves to do that too, and what's really awesome about her is that we can just sit out there for hours and be completely comfortable. I can't bear people who feel the need to fill every single silence with useless chatter. Sometimes it's good just to know someone is there, even of there is no conversation.
My apologies if this post is a little lacking, I have a bunch of stuff going on at the moment, so I'm not going to be around much today and most of tomorrow. Hoping to get back on track after that, and catch up on everything I missed!
