*sits down and folds his hands in his lap* I trust you’ve stopped worrying I’ve destroyed your plot by liking Jane too soon?
Yes, thanks to her, the story is saved.
I see we hit the halfway point in the book, or at least where you are thinking the halfway point should be. If the book goes over 65,000 words, then you’re a little under it.
Eh, that’s a couple thousand words here or there. We’re still hovering around the halfway point. Nice scene yesterday, by the way, when you realized Rebecca wasn’t coming back. I thought that was a good transition to progressing your relationship with Jane.
It’s about time, though I was hoping to do more than almost catch a glimpse of her undergarments and touch her arm.
That’s coming up soon enough.
Yep. Here’s a picture to prove it.
Hmm… I was thinking something more along these lines…
Granted, you look happier there, but back in that time period, she couldn’t be outside in a sleeveless dress.
Then have it in the bedroom. What do I care? As long as we’re moving toward her wearing less, I have no complaints.
You know, I’ve gotten some comments that you’re being…oh what’s the word…a little to eager for the bedroom.
Well, I am married to Jane, and it’s been long enough that we haven’t done anything. I assumed having a Jeremy Jr would indicate some bedroom activities will be happening. That is, if I am the father. I will be the father, won’t I?
Of course. I believe in the sanctity of marriage.
I was having a discussion with someone and she wanted to know if you think Jane is pretty.
Yes, I do, which is why I’m being tortured right now because I can’t do anything interesting with her.
Perhaps if you told her she’s pretty, it might speed things up a bit?
Are you saying it might or it will? If it will, I’ll tell her in tonight’s post.
I don’t know. Jane has a hard time believing you like her that way.
Are you going to let me change that or are you going to drag this whole platonic thing out further?
I don’t know. It depends on the flow of the story. You can’t rush these things.
Or drag them to the point where it’s annoying.
True. There’s a balance. However, I think you’ll have to keep your feelings to yourself a bit longer. Tell her she’s pretty but don’t mention you love her yet. If you say the L-word, it’ll ruin the plot, at least for right now.
*rolls eyes* Fine. I’ll find a way to get her into bed without saying the L-word.
*sighs* Onto other topics, I was wondering if you like your job.
Yes, I do. You’re not going to have me quit so I can move somewhere else, are you?
No. I just caught this picture of you listening to another preacher, and it made me wonder if you like the profession I chose for you. I mean, you look bored.
I wasn’t bored. I was blinking at the time.
Hey, it’s the truth. That photographer you hired to follow me and Jane around, which is ridiculous by the way, isn’t doing a good job. If he was good, he would have caught something a little more interesting, like Jane in her bedroom or something.
Obviously, your mind is only on one thing, and no matter what I say, you keep going back to it.
Then don’t bring me in for another ‘meeting’ until you let me start on a Jeremy Jr, and I’ll talk about other things.
Maybe next time, I’ll just bring in another character from the story.
*shrugs* I don’t see why you brought me in this time. Did we accomplish anything besides posting up more pictures?
And talking in circles. Okay. I do have another thing to post and that is the book trailer I made. I’ve got some nice pictures of you and Jane.
Great. Do you have any of us in the bedroom?
Good grief, no! I think it’s time we ended this discussion.
Fine with me. I’ll just take that picture of me and Jane kissing while she’s holding the flowers. I need something to tide me over until the books gets interesting. *snatches picture of Jane with the bare shoulders and leaves*
Well, everyone, you can’t fully blame him. He might be a preacher, but he is a man. If you are so inclined, here’s the book trailer I made:
