There was a glare in her eyes. She wasn’t going to have any of it. She was smarter than they gave her credit for.
“Please, Miss, just let us help you.” The proprietor of the shop was nervously rubbing his hands together, his distress more than obvious.
“I do not need your help,” she told the man, her southern accent becoming more and more pronounced.
“Miss, just let the good man help you,” he told her, again, nodding at the plain-clothed officer standing with them.
She looked at the man, both of them, with disgust. “Whatever. I don’t need you.”
There's More to Me Than What You See
My name is Sarah Burkett. I live in Topeka, KS, with my husband, Josh, and our two kids, Ethan who's seven, and Madison, who is ten. I'm originally from Evansville, IN, and I've also lived in Holton, KS, West Melbourne, FL, Palm Bay, FL, and Winter Park, FL. I did not graduate from college, but I did graduate from high school. I'm a blogger, a digital scrapper, a hybrid scrapper, and a wanna-be writer.
I have big dreams and a bigger mouth. I have no problems letting anyone know what I think, and sometimes, I lack the tact of putting it the correct way. I make no excuses for how and who I am. I'm content with myself, and I think that's all that truly matters.
I'm a friend, a wife, a mother, a daughter. I make a horrible enemy but if we're friends, I'll fight to the death to protect and care. It's just how I am, and how I was raised.
