9 ways to live Pride and Prejudiciously - chapter 10

hi, there.
Am a bit late with the update, but here I am.
As Bertha dives deeper into the belladama business, she messes up with forces beyond her comprehension - it's a witch thing after all, isn't it?

We're entering the last part of the story, the last third. Wait big revolutions and revelations ahead...

As I finish and revise, I notice small changes such as 2Ts in every Bennet... I'll let you know when I update all the previous posts.
For now, enjoy this chapter.




Nine ways to live Pride and Prejudiciously
WIP, modern (mostly), adult (you know me...), fun, fluff, heart healing stuff.
read chapter 9- part II
or START from CHAPTER 1

CHAPTER 10
Direct line

BUY Bertha's mug on Amazon 

The movie on the TV was so boring Lottie started to roll her eyes backwards. Maybe she should get up from the sofa and cook dinner, even though it was too early to eat. Or maybe do laundry…

‘Carlota!’

‘Vinegar for clothes to smell like summer day, I know, Gran…’

‘Tarnation, girl! Yeens always tired! Go find ye a job!’

A grumble.

‘Carlota!’

‘Gradmamma!’

‘Ah, now ye see me!’

‘Visiting me out of a Belladama dream… It’s about Bertha, I know.’

‘Darn tootin' it is her. That purdy girl has horse sense, keeps in our stuff and all the time bringing up the same man. Who is that?’

‘Don’t think I know him. But now that you said it, the tall, dark and handsome man… Yes, he is always the same. Bertha must know the guy, right?’

‘She is calling him, that’s what purdy is doing! He will start to hear her dreams.’

‘What you mean?’

‘This hankering of hers…’ A chuckle from the old witch. ‘And how come she has so many lickety-split dreams that come and go so fast?’

Groan.

‘How much have yeen give her?’

‘Enough for two trips.’

‘And she has been around...’

Silence.

‘How many times, Carlota?’

‘Six.’

‘Carlota! Yeens make me fit to be tied!’

‘Bertha says it’s a cat she’s mourning.’

‘Cat! It’s a man and he is hot on her heels. Purdy is calling, the man will hear! Trouble coming, storm forming.’

‘Funny, Grandmamma, we just had the biggest storm here. Several counties were on alert, roads closed, trees broken, it was unbelievable!’

‘It was the work of Belladama, Carlotta. Yeens will see, smart ass, wait…’
