Saffron’s Spice (Part 2)

Saffron’s Spice (Part 2)

Honestly, I should have seen it coming.  Love and relationships are nothing like a simple game of chess; they’re far more confusing and complicated.  Screenshot-4643When Garry Cinder dumped me straight to the curb after we had been seeing each other for almost eighteen months, just because I had suggested our “relationship” should become Facebook official.Screenshot-4911Needless to say, I was livid.  Luckily my twin took care of things, and Garry consequently dropped out from his degree.  I don’t know what she did, or what she said to Garry, and quite honestly I didn’t care, I was just glad he was gone.Screenshot-4654The next few months were a crazy blur, filled with drinking.Screenshot-5123Making new nerdy friends.Screenshot-5108And of course learning new things. Screenshot-4724Peach even encouraged me to start dating again.  Screenshot-4743I had a slight crush on the guy who worked in a vintage style cake shop on the University’s campus who wore over-sized glasses.  He looked like the sort of guy who would never get into trouble, which was perfect.Screenshot-4747Screenshot-4745‘Say something!’ Screenshot-4744‘Erm, hey, I’m Saffron.’Screenshot-4746Despite his shyness, we started hanging out, and it didn’t take long at all for me to discover that he was camper than a row of tents, and that he had a bigger crush on Hugh Jackman than I did.  Still, we remained good friends.Screenshot-5058Although I didn’t quite find love again at University, I did manage to graduate with first class honors, much to my and my family’s delight.  Even my Uncle Murphy, who had studied the same subject at the exact same University, was a very proud man when he heard the news.Screenshot-5166Unfortunately my parents or younger siblings were unable to make my graduation ceremony; travelling to Sim State University from Sunlit Tides was quite a journey after all.  Still, I was thrilled when I received a call from my Father that afternoon.  That was until he started talking. Screenshot-5176When he finally paused momentarily, awaiting a response from me, I hung up without saying another word.  Staring blankly at my phone, like it was a strange growth on my hand,   Screenshot-5174Sunlit Tides would no longer be our home town.  We were moving.  Dad hadn’t gone into details as to why… well, I hadn’t exactly given him the opportunity by prematurely terminating our phone call.  All I knew was that we were moving to Setra.Screenshot-5175And Setra was where Garry lived.

    Good chapter. I have to say, I actually do enjoy the university chapters, even if they take a while to get out.

    Keep up the good work! 🙂

  2. Thank you 🙂 I must admit, these chapters are fun to write up, so it’s good to know that people are enjoying reading them ^_^ x
