The Eyes Of A Fetch (Excerpt 391) One More Look
Setting the bags down on the counter, Destry starts to smile. She knows Marcus has set this up and finds it entertaining that he is tempting her to take a peek. Grinning from ear to ear, she walks over to the display and lifts the canvas just a little to see if she can view what hides beneath. She pulls the cloth up slightly then drops it back down and looks around. She is afraid she is not supposed to be snooping but she cannot help it.
“Hum, maybe just one more look.” She says to herself as she pulls the corner up slightly higher than before. This time she gets a good view of the bottom right portion of the artwork. “What?” she whispers as she pulls the cloth higher until it slips off the back. “Oh Marcus.” She says to herself as she stands directly in front of the painting. The colorful scene takes her back to the vineyard and to her Grandmother’s house. It is the exact view that she had from her bedroom window and Marcus captured the look of the fields and trees perfectly.
“I hope you like it.” Says Marcus as he sneaks out of his hiding place behind the bedroom door. Destry turns and looks at him with wide childlike eyes.
“Oh you have no idea, Marcus. It’s perfect and it takes me there to my room at Grandmother’s.” Says Destry as she runs over and kisses him.
