Fantasy Friday - Cassie's Vacation


Testing week at school, two test this week, two next week. It really makes the day extremely draining. But each day is one day closer to the end of school and my beloved summer is close at hand.

I don't have many stories sent in to Fantasy Friday these days so I'm taking a story from one of my books - Cassie on the Move. I hope I have new readers from time to time and maybe this will be new to some of you.

For those of you who haven't read any Cassie, a little background.  Cassie and her husband Tom a nice, mature couple who have an old fashion marriage - and one that has lasted many decades.  Theirs is a true love story where Tom tries his best to keep Cassie somewhat under control.  Wish the poor man luck, it's not the easiest job. 

Hope you enjoy...


Cassie's Vacation
Early the next week Tom told me some wonderful plans he made, he’d rented a house in the Florida Keys for a pre-holiday vacation. He’d already contacted Steve and Andy and they and the girls would be joining us later in the week.  The news made it feel like Christmas already and I happily began packing.
I was less than happy later that day as I saw Tom packing the ivory brush. That darn brush has traveled the world with us despite the fact I hate the stinging, wicked thing. It rarely makes an actual appearance on vacations, but it’s always in the back of my mind that it’s with us. I’m sure that’s Tom plan.
Tom had gone to his study for a bit and I stood looking into his suitcase. Picking up the brush I wondered what would be the harm if it accidently got being left behind. Of course, Tom’s timing has always been against me, and he came back to the bedroom as I was holding the brush.
“What are you doing?” I nearly jumped a foot when Tom spoke right behind my back.
I figured going into attack mode was my best bet. “Tom! Don’t sneak up on me like that. What is the matter with you?” It didn’t work though. He pressed on.
“Cassie Jane, I want to know what you were doing. You keep your hands off that brush. Were you taking it out of my bag?”
I continued in attack mode. “I wasn’t taking anything out of your old suitcase, but for that matter why shouldn’t I take the brush out? After all it’s my brush. It was your wedding gift to me, wasn’t it? Maybe you should ask me before you take it from the dresser.”
I don’t think he was taking me very serious since he pulled me over his lap as I fussed. He gave me two scorching swats with the brush before tossing it back into his bag and warmed me a bit more with his hand.
“I’ll tell you what gives me the right, I’m your husband.”
I found that answer extremely unsatisfying, but he was helping me up and I felt it in my best interest to keep my mouth shut for the most part.
I gave him a scowl as I rubbed away the sting. “I didn’t do anything wrong you know. Are you going to be this picky on our whole vacation?” I asked.
“Probably.” He answered grinning and giving me a quick kiss. “Now don’t you touch that brush or my suitcase – understand?”
Of course I understood, I’m not an idiot. Actually, I consider myself a well-behaved wife. When I carefully reached in and removed all his underwear I didn’t touch the brush or his suitcase. I felt our trip was about to be off to a wonderful start.

I do enjoy the way Cassie thinks...reminds me of a lot of the 'word games' I have been accused of playing over the years. Happy you're almost done with the tests, PK.

Hugs and blessings...Cat

It doesn't matter how many times I read a Cassie story, I love every word. Even when I have other things on my TBR list, I may pull out a Cassie book. It is like a visit from a dear friend.
