SFFS Snippet: Thunder Mountain


 Good Morning! This week I am back to Scale On Thunder Mountain, a near future SFR with paranormal elements.


“Then we are going to town?” 
Lucia scrambled after her into the cool sunny morning. The air was scented with pine and jays called from the woods, with the occasional rat tat tat of  a wood pecker. A city girl, Tess had never imagined she would like the country so much.
“Yup."
After breakfast clean-up they were going to town with Bleach. The day's plans included  shopping and taking Lucia to a big duck pond at a local park.
They entered the kitchen from the backdoor, which was never locked. Tess got a bowl of cereal for Lucia, then started the small coffee pot. The big urns for the guests were next, followed by biscuits, bacon and sausage for the buffet.
“Where’s Beebop?" Lucia was in love with Milly’s tiny poodle-mix dog, who usually came to great Lucia with enthusiastic licking.
