Cora Carmack: Keeping Her Cora Carmack: Keeping Her

Garrick Taylor and Bliss Edwards managed to find their happily-ever-after despite a rather . . . ahem . . . complicated start. By comparison, meeting the parents should be an absolute breeze, right?

But from the moment the pair lands in London, new snags just keep cropping up: a disapproving mother-in-law-to-be, more than one (mostly) minor mishap, and the realization that perhaps they aren't quite as ready for their future as they thought.

As it turns out, the only thing harder than finding love is keeping it.

Cora Carmack: Keeping Her

Ezen a rövid történeten is remekül szórakoztam. Garricket imádom, Bliss meg a hülye rigolyáival és a szerencsétlenségével sajnos magamra emlékeztet, de remekül működnek együtt, és nagyon szellemesek. Viszont pont az írás novella mivoltával nem vagyok megelégedve, mert mire elérkeztünk a lényeghez, a rémes anyuka megismeréséhez, már véget is ért az egész, és az anyukával való szituáció fél oldal alatt megoldódott, és azt is csak pár mondatból tudjuk meg. Nem beszélve Garrick fél nap alatt bekövetkező elhatározásáról, az egész nagyon összecsapottnak hatott ezáltal. El kell fogadnom, hogy ez így nem teljesedhetett jobban ki, tehát a lényeg, hogy jókat nevettem, vicces volt, és örülök, hogy visszatérhettem kicsit ehhez a pároshoz.

I said, “You’re English.”
He smiled and blinked a few times. “Yes. Yes, I am.”
“And we’re about to be in England.”
He nodded slowly, and I knew I sounded crazy, but I didn’t care.
“Yes. We’ve only been planning this visit for a month.”

“I’m going to hold you to that. I know how much you love accents, and I’m going to have much

I laughed. “I hadn’t even thought of that! Just think, a whole country full of British men! I could

He tugged me forward and silenced me in my favorite way.
“That’s not funny,” he said. “It’s bad enough that I’m about to have to share you with my


Call it an issue. Call it baggage. But I really hated lies. They're ugly things, festering like wounds, spreading like disease. They're winner-less crimes that hurt everybody in the end.


Life’s too short to waste time living it any other way.


WAIT, WAIT! JUST one more!”
“Bliss, there are children waiting.”
And they probably hated us, but I was just so glad to see her smiling that I didn’t care.
“Yeah, well, they all just jumped on the bandwagon. Most of them weren’t alive when I read Harry Potter for the first time.”
I turned to the Canadian family behind me and said, “I’m so sorry. This is the last one, I promise.” Then I took one more picture of Bliss pretending to push the luggage cart through the wall at the Platform 9¾ monument at King’s Cross Station.
A little boy stuck his tongue out at Bliss as we left. I pulled her away before she could follow suit.
“That kid better watch it. I’m totally a Slytherin.”
I shook my head, smiling.
“Love, I’m going to need you to pull back on the crazy a bit.”
“You’re right. Realistically, I’m a Ravenclaw.”


If we did have a child, and he came to you with something like this, would you tell him to take the money, to take the job that didn’t mean anything? Why am I even asking, I know what you’d say. You’d tell him to do the thing he loved, the thing that made him feel more alive. Life’s too short to waste time living it any other way.


In life, it’s so easy to get tunnel vision, to imagine this world is a movie set and your story—­what you see through your eyes and think with your brain and feel with your heart—­is the only thing that matters. But the world was so much bigger than that. Life was so much bigger than that. Sometimes, I couldn’t understand how it could hold all of us, all of the hope and hurt of humanity.


God, all those months of seeing Kelsey’s pictures and hearing about her travels, and I had been raging with jealousy. And now it was my turn.
I wanted to mind the gap at the tube station and eat fish and chips and try to make the Queen’s guards laugh. I wanted to see Big Ben and the Globe and the London Bridge and Dame Judi Dench. Or Maggie Smith. Or Alan Rickman. Or Sir Ian McKellen. Or anybody famous and British, really.
Holy crap. This was really happening.
And I wasn’t just a tourist. I was visiting with someone who’d grown up in the city. With my fiancé.
Take that, world.
