Adjustments

“We need to change the game plan.” Said, Susan.

The men stopped walking. “You want all of us to meet in the living room?” Asked, Ralph.

“Yes.” Said, Susan.

Everyone gathered their things and went into the room. Grace was placed on a blanket on the floor. About a minute went by with everyone watching her. Chief Day broke the silence.

“Cora and Grace will be staying in the cottage. My Emily had a dream before she did. A young mother and her baby will need a place to stay. I believe she was preparing me before she died.” Stated, Chief Day.

“Cora, the church will help you.” Said, Pastor George.

“I’m not a religious person.” Stated, Cora.

“Not a problem. Connie is our community outreach coordinator. Here is her business card.” Said, Pastor George with a smile.

“Thank you.” Said, Cora.

“You hurt one hair one either of them you will deal with me.” Growled, Chief Day to Connie.

“My intentions are to hurt no one. I am a bit of a gossip hound.” Said, Connie.

“Is that what you are calling yourself?” Mumbled, Chief Day.

“Moving forward.” Said, Susan.

“Chief Day, please have Cora’s car towed to the garage. The church will pay for the repairs.” Said, Susan.

“I will pay you back, Pastor George.” Said, Cora.

“There is no hurry in you doing that. Nor do you need to pay us back. Consider this as a gift.” Said, Pastor George.

“You got WiFi at the cottage?” Asked, Ralph.

“No.”

“Hm….” Said, Ralph.

“This is Chief Day. I need my service to expand today. Now is good.” He said into his smartphone. A minute went by with the Chief agreeing to the person on the other side of the call.

“We are set. They will be at my place within the hour.” Said, Chief Day.

“Excellent.” Said, Ralph.

“Cora, do you have any social media skills or marketing?” Asked Ralph.

“Yes.”

“I have the perfect job for you.” Said, Ralph.

Susan gave her husband one of her looks. “Honey, don’t worry your pretty head. I got all of this.” Said, Ralph. Ralph looked over at Susan to see her glaring at him. He smiled back.

“Cora. My wife is a world-known contemporary romance author. I am….”

“Susan, I’ve read all of your books. I’d be honored to market you. Work all of your social media accounts.” Said, Cora with excitement.

“Grace can stay with me. Chief Day being kind to have WiFi at the cottage. Oh, everything is falling into place.” Said, Cora with a giggle.

“This is a yes?” Asked, Ralph.

“Yes.” Said, Cora.

“Great. We will work out the details tomorrow.” Said, Ralph.

“What details are you talking about?” Asked, Tank.
