Happy Friday, Readers! It’s time again (already!) for Friday Fictioneers. I’m going to continue exploring the lives of Miss Emmeline Price and Mr. Nick Ramsey. If you missed last week’s story, you can find it here.
As always, I offer my thanks to Rochelle for providing us with a weekly prompt, and this week special thanks to J. Hardy Carroll.
Enjoy the story!
“Emmy, this is crazy.”
“It’s Emmeline, Nicholas.”
“He’s a recluse! He never accepts visitors!” Nick stumbled over the uneven sidewalk. “Do you really expect to get in?”
Emmeline stopped suddenly as they arrived at the gates. An old intercom was attached to a pole. With practiced ease she punched in a set of numbers. There was some static, then a raspy voice said, “Is that you, Miss Price?”
“Yes, Lester. But I have a follower today. Should I leave him at the gate?”
After a pause, the voice rasped, “Bring him up.”
“You’re a wonder, you know that?” Nick whispered.
