Hello! I was going through my dash today and saw a quote from your novel pop up and it made me remember when I first started following you. I`m so glad that I started following you in the first place, honestly. I love the story and characters you`ve constructed, and your writing is absolutely marvelous. Needless to say, you`ve inspired me to start writing again, and I also have a book in the works as well. I just want to say thank you for everything you`ve done and taught me. Have a good day! :)

Mattie looked at her phone about a thousand different times, making sure that she had the right address but really..how many duck shaped mailboxes could there be on one stretch of land? She took in a deep breath to calm her nerves and placed three firm knocks on the wood of James' door.

James nearly jumped out of his skin when the knock sounded at his door, quickly shoving a handful of pills into his mouth and swallowed them down with a few gulps of water. “Coming!” he called after a moment, rushing to the washroom mirror to check over his appearance before he calmed himself down and headed to the door. 

He unlocked the five locks on his door and pulled it open, taking a look outside and smiled. “I’m glad you found it,” he said, opening the door wider for her and motioned for her to come inside. “Feel free to take a look around, I just finished cleaning,” he said. 

James gave her a bit of a shy smile, shaking his head. “I don’t mind it at all, really. It’s just been quite a long time since someone has said anything of affection toward me. Guess I just didn’t know how to act— react, that is.” he said a little sheepishly, busying himself by getting the things they needed to make their meal ready. 

Mattie bit her bottom lip, finding him absolutely adorable. She brought her hair up into a high ponytail so that it wouldn’t get in anything. “Would you like me to get started on the rice?” She was still by the sink, leaning against it a bit as she watched him fidget around. 

"Yes, it’s just in the cupboard there, pots are above the stove," he said as he got together what he needed to make the ‘meat’balls.


"She moved like poetry—"

"Sweetheart?" He looked stunned and his voice cracked, and his whole face went a bright red, ears burning. He cleared his throat awkwardly then, managing a smile. "How about vegetarian meatballs, rice and veggies?"

A bit of pink dusted over Mattie’s cheeks and she rubbed the back of her neck, her gaze shifting from his eyes down to the floor. “Um, yeah, that— that sound wonderful. Um, James, do you mind if I call you sweetheart? I mean, I don’t want to make you uncomfortable or anything…it just kind of slipped out.”

James gave her a bit of a shy smile, shaking his head. “I don’t mind it at all, really. It’s just been quite a long time since someone has said anything of affection toward me.

"It may be best to decide together, I still don’t know what you like," he said, watching her wash her hands, as if inspecting her. She almost did it right, though not quite. It was right hand, then left. Bah.

"Yeah, okay." She blinked a few times when she met his eyes, a small smile tugging at the corners of her lips. "Is everything alright, sweetheart?"

"Sweetheart?" He looked stunned and his voice cracked, and his whole face went a bright red, ears burning. He cleared his throat awkardly then, managing a smile. "How about vegetarian meatballs, rice and veggies?"

"oh, sure I don’t mind. Follow me then, shoes off," he smiled at her, turning on his heel and headed straight down the hallway and into the kitchen. " I just picked up some groceries, so we have quite a lot we could have."

Mattie hummed and took off her shoes, leaving them by the door and following behind him in her socks. She looked around the small portion of house that she could though mostly she watched his back. Once in the kitchen she rolled up her sleeves and went about washing her hands, making sure everything was as clean as she could get it. “Do you have anything in mind for us to cook or are we going to decide together?”

"It may be best to decide together, I still don’t know what you like," he said, watching her wash her hands, as if inspecting her. She almost did it right, though not quite. It was right hand, then left. Bah.

"The mailbox made it a lot easier." She spoke with a smile and stopped playing with the end of her shirt when he opened the door, her nerves still there but no longer at the forefront of her mind. She wanted to comment on why in the word one person needed to have five locks but thought it best to hold her tongue on that particular subject after a moment of consideration.

She stepped into the house when she was allowed and just looked around her immediate surroundings. “Would you mind if I take the tour after we make dinner? I’m kind of hungry..”

"oh, sure I don’t mind. Follow me then, shoes off," he smiled at her, turning on his heel and headed straight down the hallway and into the kitchen. " I just picked up some groceries, so we have quite a lot we could have."
