The Eyes Of A Fetch (Excerpt 447) Shallow Lives
“Why do you suppose Marnie snapped like that?” Lyla asks as she sits back on the sofa holding her teacup with both hands.
“Marnie has emotional issues that she never dealt with properly is my guess. She then lived in an imaginary world that she began to perceive as reality.” Crispin says as he looks directly at Lyla. “It is almost as if she realized this and was willing to do anything to make that world come true.”
“She was focused on you.” says Lyla. “Apparently she has been from the first day you arrived.”
“If that is true, then it is only because I was new to town and have wealth.” Replies Crispin as he leans toward her. “Shallow people live shallow lives.” He tips his cup back drinking down the rest of his tea. “Anyone with common sense can tell you are the only one that has captured my heart.” Lyla smiles at him over her cup.
“Well, you’re Grandmother certainly knew her stuff, I could fall asleep right here.” She says as Crispin quickly responds and takes her cup.
“Here, I’ll show you to your room.” He stands up and pulls her up by the hand then leads her back down the hallway to a spacious bedroom with deep colored furniture and thick layers of bedding. A small stained glass lamp is sitting on the night table emitting just enough light to cast a creamy glow over the room.
