Tea with the Dragon Lady
Sometimes I couldn’t remember when I had last had a nice conversation with my daughter. A proper talk, which didn’t end in her shouting and storming out of the room, slamming the door behind her. And it wasn’t as though she was a teenager either, she was twenty-two. In fact Anna had been a very easy teenager, focused on getting good grades and not taking boyfriends too seriously.
Until now. She’d met a man called TJ six months before and things had changed. She’d become secretive and silent and didn’t want to discuss what she’d been doing. Instead she’d come back late at night and go straight to her room, just calling out a “goodnight” as she closed her door firmly. Something was going on and I had an idea that TJ was involved but I wasn’t prepared for her bombshell.
