Blogfest Story Chain

Deana Barnhart is hosting lots of fun blogfests this month, including this week's blogfest story chain!

He finished his sandwich in three more bites, clapped, and wiped his mouth with the towel that appeared. "Ok, now where were we? Oh, yes, getting you out of here. First thing, we need a…"

The story continues at Loralie Hall's. Enjoy!
