Tess didn’t know what to expect when Grandpa called her back to Scotland, but not this. She rechecked his letter, 2 Coleman Brae, this was it. She turned as a car approached, tensing as the window opened to reveal a small, wrinkled face, topped by white hair.

“Seanair?” she asked, falling into her Gaelic dialect, surprised she remembered the word for grandpa.

“Tess, help me up and we can talk.”

She learned he was dying. She also learned the ruin and the thousand plus acres it stood on was hers. An offer to sell had been made. She could accept, or use the land as her own. For now, she opted for dinner with Seanair.
