Chapter 1-A New Beginning

And so it was that Carlee found herself standing outside the little plot of land her Grandma willed to her. “What am I going to do now? I don’t think I  thought this through at all,” Carlee thought. This land is so small and there is nothing on it. Not to mention the dust. Cough, Cough. A person could choke out here. But it was all she had in the world and she couldn’t live at the Orphanage anymore so she was going to have to make the best of it.

After the long day she had, she decided to think about it all tomorrow. For now, she needed to rest.

After a day of trying and failing to fish she decided maybe she would have better luck with the rocks. Luckily she pulled up a hammer while fishing. Maybe they will be worth something. Much to her surprise she did find some worth in digging rocks.

Eventually she had enough money to buy a cheap refrigerator and a bed and some other necessities like a toilet and shower.

Okay so now what? I ate, dug some rocks but what am I going to do now. I have never felt so lost and lonely in my life. I wonder if this was a good idea. Okay Carlee, no time for feeling sorry for yourself. Chin up. Time to meet some men. She wasn’t going to waste another minute feeling sorry for herself. Her dream was to meet someone, start a family. Have the home she never really got to have so off to the hunt.

She met this guy but they really didn’t seem to hit it off very well.

After yet another day of digging and meeting no one at all, Carlee was starting to feel lonely and pretty fed up with this whole thing. Living on a lot and trying to survive each day was not easy. She would be glad when her job started and she could make some money doing something a little cleaner.

“This whole thing is not turning out the way I thought it would,” she sniffed. I hope tomorrow things will get better. She was going to have to try harder to meet someone.
