Tuesday Tales – Bargain

This week’s word is Bargain. Sadly, I’m not writing much these days but these prompts are making me be a little productive. I have next week’s done too but it’s on the same page in the book as this one. I’m not sure if I’m going to continue the story. Read the other entries here.

Badge for TT - very small

Fiona sat beside the window lost in thought until time to dress for dinner. She wasn’t sure exactly what to think about Cordelia and her adventure. She sure was brave for someone Fiona thought of as spoiled and overprotected. To survive that push off the train and still want to come back onboard knowing that the very person who tossed her off would still be around and maybe try again. Or try something much worse. Fiona couldn’t decide if the woman was crazy or not. She was pretty sure that she herself would’ve taken the first transport back home.

As Fiona slipped on her second new dinner gown, she thought about all that had transpired since she boarded the train in Paris. This trip she won was certainly turning into much more than she bargained for. A murder, a friend being tossed off the train and into the countryside, that scary man, Johnny Rozzelle who she was sure was a member of the mafia and then there was Win. Handsome Winchester Barrington, IV. Fiona let out a sigh as she slid the gown over her hips. He was really quite spectacular even though she knew he was out of her reach.
