Cora never thought for a moment her young husband could die.
This was my spontaneous creation:
When she wasn’t thinking about the money, she was thinking about Jenny. Jenny’s smile, her curvy body, the scent of her shampoo. She thought about Jenny’s brain, too, because that brain had a plan, with a million reasons to give it a try.
And when she wasn’t thinking about the money, or Jenny, she was thinking about how to get rid of Jenny after the plan worked. Half a million didn’t sound nearly so grand as simply a “million.” When she got to Canada she’d be a rich American widow, and of course by then she’d need a new husband. And a new Jenny.
Keep the pen moving. It’s good advice! Thank you to Heidi and her fun workshop!
