Haven’t read Amy & Zach yet? Here’s a tiny glimpse at a part of Chapter 1:
Time to face the music…
I saw (my brother) Ed’s face smiling at me, I suddenly felt a rush of emotion. His hair was longer, almost down to his shoulders in an unkempt mess. I saw he was alone and I felt a little relieved. He was walking towards me now, grinning, and wrapped his arms around me affectionately. He smelled of an expensive aftershave and felt thinner. I was pretty sure I felt fatter.
“Good to see you sis.” He released me quickly and then took control of my trolley.
“Did you come alone?” I asked, trying to figure out if I was disappointed or pleased.
“Yes. Mum is preparing dinner for us. Libby and Tim are there.”
Panic rose in my chest at the sound of my sister’s fiancé’s name. I could have done without seeing him today. We walked along chatting about the usual things, my flight, and the weather, how I was generally, how he was overall.
“Wait,” he said suddenly stopping as we reached his car, “Where’s Zach?”
“He couldn’t make it. He’s got flu.”
I tapped my credit card nervously on the counter as the clerk typed a few things into her computer.
“We have one seat available on the next flight to London,” she told me. “But you’ll need to board right away. I can tell them to hold the gate for you.”
“Thank you.” I handed her my credit card, ready to hug her for telling me this news. I’d imagined waiting hours in the airport. I glanced at my watch. Amy would be landing about now. I thought about calling her, but decided against it. She’d made it clear she didn’t want to talk to me, and if I told her I was coming, she’d only tell me not to.
“Really creative,funny,romantic and just co you lent put the book down!! Really loved how Zack and Amy shared both their stories was really great!! Loved it!!!”
