Chapter 3.20: Someone New

I finally finished getting the house ready for Lexie to move in, aka, taking all her old stuff out of her room. She was supposed to be coming today. I looked out the window, wondering if there was enough time to take a quick walk outside before my sister arrived. I quickly pulled out my phone to text her. Going out, be back before you get here. I laughed at her almost-immediate reply. Suuure. Besides, I have a key. Not like she’s ever used it. I left my phone in my room, and walked out. I’d always thought being outside (usually running) was relaxing. I’d hardly seen anyone else outside when I ran, though, which was why I was surprised to see someone just standing by the ocean.

“Hey,” I asked, “is everything ok?”

She turned around, smiling. “Yeah, just admiring the ocean. I just moved here. The outdoor scenery is very different!”


“Well, I could always show you around if you’d like.” I said. “My name’s Adelaide.”

“Mine’s Danielle, but you can call me Dani…with an i.”

“Nice meeting you, Dani. You can call me Addie, with an i-e.” I smiled, laughing a little. “So, why’d you move? Work?”

“You could say that.” Dani said. “I’m just really grateful for this-a new start. Some…things happened where I used to live. I never thought I’d get this chance.”


Dani and I talked for seemingly forever. We just had so much in common! She’d been to Granite Falls a couple times and we really connected talking about the environment. She loves the outdoors way more than I do, though! I’ve never connected with a person so fast, or so easily.


I was about to invite her over when my phone went off.

“Oh Watcher, Dani, I’m sorry!” I’d looked at the screen for a split second and saw Lexie’s face. I had totally forgotten that she was coming. “My sister’s moving in today, but do you want to come over some other time?”

“Yeah, definitely. See you around!”

I ran the ~1.5 miles back home, and in that time, it seemed the sky had considerably darkened, on top of some rain clouds. Lexie was waiting with a small bag and a few boxes.

“Where have you been?”

“I was just talking to someone. They just moved here.”

She gave me *that* look, which I happily ignored. “So,” I said, “is this everything?”

“Yep! The house looks…bigger?”

“A little. I added onto the kitchen, working on the living room next!”

Lexie nodded. “Ok, so also, I have a job. As a cook…’s assistant. Weeelll, more like the assistant to the assistant…”

“That’s great! How long have you had it?”

470:06-20-18“A few months. Things are going really well though.” Lexie said. “Let’s get my stuff in, shall we?”

A/N: This is my 100th post! 🙂 Can’t wait for a hundred more! And yes, Dani is Danica Lovelace from the Lovelace Legacy for anybody that reads it! (Start reading it here, it’s really good!) This is her new start! I just changed her name a *little* for the story because I felt like she’d want part of her old life. Also, I realized I’ve never shown you guys the house before, so here it is! 🙂
