Only a few days now until Lady Savina and I are together.
We won’t be living together at first. Her divorce is still dragging on, and her middle daughter is coming to stay with her for a month. Until the divorce is finalized I’m still a secret in her life, at least to her older daughters and her soon-to-be-ex. So I will be right down the road, in a little place I’m calling The Loft — I’ve always wanted a loft apartment, and this is pretty close. That is, as close as I’m going to get in a little Iowa town with a population of 163.
Our plan is, every morning she drives right by The Loft on her way to work, and so she’ll be picking me up on her way. We’ll work at the place of many ups and downs, then she’ll drop me off on the way home. I’ll be a few miles away and we’ll both be going nuts. So close, so close! And it will be this way for much of July. If I can, I’ll try to use these strange nights in this small town to work on my novel. Who knows, maybe I’ll even finish it.
I have never lived in a town so small that the entire population could fit on an airline all at once. Small towns are famous for having no secrets.
This is going to be interesting.
