EXCERPT:
Both grinned at her as Donna schooled her face into something looking a bit less like shock. She found herself nodding her head as she surveyed their attire. Jeans. Sneakers. Who were they? Did they think she served as a driver? Maybe their driver failed to show on time and thought anyone standing about could be the missing chauffeur. Before Donna could formulate a response to clear up matters, she remember the man had a clipped manner of speaking.

Nothing elegant and cultured like the BBC shows, though. “Howard? Elizabeth?”

“That’s us,” Elizabeth agreed with a nod.

“I’d thought you’d be wearing hats,” Donna uttered the words, then she realized how stupid they sounded.

“Wait,” Elizabeth said, then dug into her backpack. She pulled out a red cap with Boston stitched on the front. “I bought this at the last airport. Should I be wearing it?”

“No.” The last thing the newly arrived Brits needed was to get the cold shoulder from the southerners who held a grudge almost two hundred years later about the War of Northern Aggression. “Let me show you to the baggage area. How did you recognize me?”

Howard puffed out his chest. “I am a Scotland Yard trained detective. Most of the people had already scattered, so, not that many people to choose from. I then subtracted all the airport workers. Finally, I looked for a lush lady.”

“Lush lady,” she repeated the words, not liking the sound of them. Either they thought her a heavy drinker or overweight. Sure, she had to buy her clothing in the plus-size department, but only because the garment industry decided to end misses’ sizes at twelve now.

“Lush lady. That’s how Mark described you.”

Well, someone would be getting a chat tonight. Did he really think of her that way? He’d always assured her he loved her curves and not to change a thing. Was it just nonsense men say to keep their wives from chattering on? A bewildered smile served as her response until she realized a verbal response might be expected. “Lovely.”

Morgan K Wyatt is the general wordsmith, while her husband, Scott, is the grammar hammer and physics specialist. He uses his engineering skills to explain how fast a body falls when pushed over a cliff and various other felonious activities.
