Another Teaser

More NaNoWriMo update! Today I’m here to share another tidbit of this time travel romance story. In Another Time.

β€œWait, abuela!” Leonardo said. He raise both hands up in surrender, but Isabela will have none of it. The word, abuela wouldn’t let her. This was personal now.

β€œI’m not going to let a trespasser do what he wants when I’m around!” she declared and wildly trash the hangers. She chased Leonardo out of the bedroom and down the stairs.

He was at the bottom of the stairs when Leonardo stopped and grabbed her wrist. β€œOkay, I’m sorry for calling you abuela, but you look like her, at least when she was younger.”

Leonardo let go and she let her hand down. Leonardo, doesn’t seem dangerous at all. β€œYou must know your grandmother’s name no?”

Leonardo looked at her. β€œHer full name is Maria Estella Isabel Jurado Portes.”

Her face felt hot. She went back to chasing him out with the hanger. He walked backward through the corridor while covering his face.

β€œI don’t know what’s going on. I thought this is a dream but I’m telling you the truth! And I live in this house.” One of the hangers whacked his head as Leonardo lowered his hand to fumble in his pocket. Leonardo pulled out a key. The key of the house hanging on a keychain with three tiny pompoms. β€œThis is my home too, abuela.”

She tentatively walked up to him and took the key. She felt around her skirt and chuckled. β€œNice try! You stole it out from my pocket.” She dropped it in her skirt and pointed the door using the hanger. β€œOut.”

Leonardo looked lost.

Abuela, please believe me,” he said and her heart warm up in the loving way he said β€˜abuela’. Leonardo sounded desperate, but he says every word for her with affection. If she was an old woman, she would be glad to have him as her grandchild.

β€œI’m really sorry Leonardo, but you can’t be here. This isn’t even my house.”

β€œWhat the hell is going on,” Leonardo whispered while letting her pushed him out.

Once he was out, she closed the door again and pull out the key. She shake the ring and let the three yarn pompoms dance, one blue and two red pompoms. She made it the same day Alonso entrusted her with his spare key. It’s the one and only.

β€œHm, he thinks he can fool me by showing the keys?” she laughed and froze when she noticed an identical keychain with pompoms hanging at mounted key holder beside the door. β€œQue?”

  1. That is a lovely read, I wanted to read more πŸ™‚ Happy writing, this is awesome. I can’t wait, I am waiting for this month end to end soon πŸ˜€ God of time, I need more time. I damn need more time, so I can sit and read a LOT. I get busy a LOT these days πŸ™ Reality hit’s very hard when it does, I go offline πŸ˜‰ Happy writing, and a lovely sunday Jessica πŸ™‚

    1. Thanks Simon ❀️ and I do understand you completely. I haven’t blog the last three days too. When reality calls, everything you hold needs to drop. I hope you’re having a satisfying Sunday my friend, away from work and relaxing at least. πŸ€—πŸ€—πŸ€—

      1. Sunday was a busy day, but relaxing, as I was busy cooking delicious foods πŸ˜‹ But hardly had time to open my mobile or laptop. It still was relaxing, and that’s called reality 😳 😜😁. Have a wonderful week Jessica πŸ€—πŸ€—

        1. Oh well, the most important part is that it was relaxing πŸ™‚ Wishing you a wonderful week as well πŸ€—πŸ€—

    1. Aw, seriously dear Ribby, any more sweet words, and I will have to live without a heart. It will fly away from growing wings because of you πŸ˜‚ But as always thank you for encouraging me so πŸ₯°

    1. Not really. She’s chasing him out of his house, unaware that he somehow traveled back in time. πŸ˜„ That’s why there are two keys.

    1. Thanks Chris! I had to read over again to notice you change the cliffhanger to keyhanger πŸ˜‚
