#atozchallenge, Y is for Yankee…

Yvonne was certain that Billy’s family would never love her.  She hadn’t come from old money or belonged to a country club and she didn’t like cornbread or sugar in her iced tea.

She was a perfectly nice girl from the Midwest with a good education, a great job and a love for Billy that would never quit.   But she longed to be part of his family, not just that nice Yankee girl their son married…

Billy pulled her close for a kiss.  “I’m sure they’ll come ’round.  But it’s okay either way, darling, cause we’re our own family now.”

My theme this year is 100 word fiction.  (So, no, don’t count this line.)

  3. Billy is a sweetheart! It is so nice to have opposites attract! I am at one year with my Calisto. I hope our differences keep the attraction going. He’s quiet and a little “brooding” while I am pretty much like my blog, upbeat and a little annoying. Lol 🙂

    1. My story was just a tad autobiographical! Sometimes the things that attracted me the most are the things that drive me the craziest, hahaha! I’m so glad things are good for you two!!!
