Collaborative Story Dock One

Eifell tower underneath(End of collaborative story from previous posts.)

Marian felt like an outsider while her father and Gen reunited with her mother. She gazed at the sparkling lights on the dazzling landmark. From the dock to the tower was what she had wanted, but she never expected the dangerous way to arrive there.
“Marian, join us,” her father said as he pulled her closer. She blanched at his touch but followed him. “You must have questions.”
“Interpol? Were . . . are . . .”
“Yes, the three of us since before you were born.”
“I went undercover and then couldn’t get out. All those years wasted,” Marian’s mother said.
“Gen, you embezzled?”
“For your mother’s release. Interpol didn’t send the money fast enough. I had to save my sister.” Gen kissed Marian’s mother on her cheek.
“The key?”
Her father whispered, “Classified information with a potential to start another world war.” Aloud he said, “Let’s go home.”

For over twenty-five years, I've taught elementary grades, high school, and county special education classes. Now I am a field supervisor for teachers working toward their teaching credentials. I also teach writing classes in Dublin and Pleasanton, California. I have won 5 awards in short story contests, My stories are published in The California Writers Club Literary Review, and several anthologies including four times in Las Positas College collections. I have several book projects, but the two that have my immediate attention are HADA'S FOG, which is women's fiction, LILLI, a YA novel, and NORMAN IN THE PICTURE, a paranormal mystery. I have published an anthology WRITTEN ACROSS THE GENRES that includes writings from members of my writing classes and other writers. It's available on Amazon and Kindle.
