And we have come to the end of the trail. The final story in the book is “Fish Tale.” The newly-wed Roxanne is taking a well-deserved break at the lake at the bottom of the hill when she spies a tail diving into the depths. Curious about the size of the fish that would grow that big in a small body of water, she keeps watching, and a big blond fellow invites her to come swimming. In November.
Despite the new ring on her finger, she wades into the water and he gifts her a beautiful bracelet–that lets her breathe underwater as he takes her to his home beneath the lake.
Of course, Bruce isn’t totally clueless about the fact that she is missing–especially when she misses a dinner shift at the restaurant. So he and the other residents of the Home go looking for her.
They find a strange world under the lake, where a stranded merman has been looking for a suitable bride. Has he found one?
Also included in the book is some miscellaneous material:
- Bruce’s Wedding Toast to Roxanne
- A Sampling of Madame Rose’s Horoscopes
- The original welcome page from the old Home website. (I may recycle that to the new one!)
Next week I plan on starting the new rotation schedule. Posting on each blog once a week with a RieView on a random site on Friday will make it easier to come up with material for each blog.
Tentatively, the weekly schedule will be:
- Monday–Here’s the Clean (to get the housework out of the way early)
- Wednesday–Home for Wayward Spirits
- Thursday–The Conn-Mann Chronicles
- Friday–a RieView on one of the sites
My first RieView will be a look at all 9 seasons of American Horror Story at the Home.
Stick around. I think it will be cool. Now, my husband has a holiday today, so that’s all the blogging for the week. See you Monday!
