    We slept until nine before waking to realize that we had to meet her family at Marsh Harbor by noon. I saw her panic and started to jump from the bed.
“Riki, what if we don’t show up?”
She returned a mischievous smile. “No, Daddy has been good to me!” She looked at me sadly.
“I know. I’m just so confused right now!”
“Me too!” She buried her face against my neck.
“Okay! Get dressed! I promised him I’d have you there on time. I’m going to get you there on time!”
She smiled a false smile, and we packed in a hurry. We checked out at the front desk and ran for the boat. We motored out into the channel, out past the point, and raised the sails. We were in sight of Marsh Harbor as we let out the sails for the gentle wind that was coming from the east.
Riki sat next to me all the way while leaning her head against me. The catamaran was already on the charter docks, and it looked like the dock crews were hauling off all of the contents with multiple dock carts. The closer we got, the more I wanted to just turn around and head for the blue water.
We dropped the sails and motored into the tight entrance to the charter base. We went to the closest mooring buoy, and Riki hooked it with our mooring hook. I brought her bag up from below. I had packaged her painting for her mother into a converted cardboard box for safety. I delivered her and her baggage to the dinghy dock where her father met us and thanked me for my punctuality. Riki passed him on the dock without a comment.
“Is everything okay?” he asked when he saw Riki’s tears.
“It will be,” I said as I restrained mine.
I stayed on the mooring ball overnight. They didn’t ask for payment, and I didn’t offer. I was depressed and lonely. I was so disconnected from the world that I didn’t even own a cell phone. I had no way of contacting Riki, and she had no way to reach me. How stupid was I to let her leave? She has a future as a doctor, and I have a future as a—

    “Mother, before I go to America, I had a painting done for you.” Riki pulled it from the box.
“Oh, that is beautiful! Did Louis paint this?” Her father was looking over her shoulder.
“Yes, and he gave me the earrings after he did the painting!” she bragged.
“Did you see the name of this painting on the back plate?” asked Zenzi.
She turned the painting to the back and let Riki read, “I will love you forever. L. D. Amherst.”
Her mother and father exchanged a look that Riki missed as she left the room suddenly.

A day on NEVIS Island. #NEVIS #ST KITTS #TRAVEL

IMG_20171128_100010907_HDR

I did a forty-five minute ferry crossing from St. Kitts this morning. It was a calm day on the Caribbean with happy companions from many different countries. In the above photo, I was up in the mountains with the Atlantic behind me. I have completed three books that I hope will be out this next year. In each book, the main character runs to Nevis for peace and solitude. St. Kitts/Nevis are a sovereign country and therefor a safe haven for him. I had done all of my research on the internet, and took this opportunity to get my facts straight before the readers point it out to me.

Down the street from the Police Station, and the Fire Department, is a small park type area. In my book Louis often played chess with an old island man named Charles. Charles always won, and was undefeated by all challengers. While I was trying to locate this park, a security guard at the bank told me that there is a man that plays chess and checkers in the square, is rarely defeated, but his name is not, Charles.

As I worked my way around the island, I spotted a small building by itself. Newcastle Pottery had many un-glazed pieces to offer and had to wipe her hands from the large piece she was creating, to take my money. When the piece is to her liking, she fires it behind the building, in coconut husks.

Toward the end of my circumnavigation of Nevis, I had a delicious lunch at Sunshine Beach Bar. Bob Marley played on the speakers as the breeze blew in from the Caribbean. I was told to order a Killer Bee to drink, which I did. They reminded me of a scaled down Painkiller in the BVI. After a few of them, I walked a bit slower. If coming to Nevis, this is a place you must stop.

I have lived here before, in my books. As a writer, this is a new experience. As I walk through the streets I see all of the characters, experiences, storms, and tragedies, that were only in my head yesterday. Often I look at places, pointing to tell someone about my experience there. I had to laugh at myself realizing that it is only fiction.

She looked radiant as she walked down the aisle. They had
buried the evidence of Darius beneath several silk ribbons. She
looked absolutely beautiful with her long black hair falling across
her shoulders. I faced her from the platform, as our eye contact
never broke. I took her hand and she stood beside me.

The preacher read from the Bible and I thought about how
complete my life is now. As soon as we’re legal and recorded,
all of my past, present, and future, becomes one, and forgiven.

I looked past the Bible that the preacher was holding and stared
at Loren’s legs that showed between the split in the front
of her gown. I visualized her white thigh high nylons and that she
was probably not wearing panties.

“Daddy . . . DADDY!” David pushed her ring against my
forearm and snapped me back to reality.

“I DO!” I said, as Loren smiled, blushed, and shook her head
at me. She knew exactly what I was thinking!

“And Loren, do you take Jonah . . . death do you part?”

“She flashed me a sexy smile and looked me in the eyes, then paused for paybacks . . . I do!”

MY SECOND BOOK… (Amaretto with Coffee)… by A.D.Banyan

November13B

MY SECOND BOOK

Comment from A.D.Banyan, on Amaretto with Coffee.

( #Romance, #murder, #adventure, #children, #family, #sailing, #Costa Rica)

I had fun writing Amaretto.  I am a sailor and learning to be a writer, so I wrote a lot of the scenes from experience. I however… have never had children! I have helped raise other people’s children, but do not have biological children.

As various people reviewed my writing from time to time, it became obvious that I knew nothing about child-birth. In chapter 15, I had Jonah lying on the bed in the sailboat, his hand on Lisa’s tummy, feeling his son moving against his hand. I wrote a lot of emotion into that scene only to be told that at that stage of pregnancy, the child is still not developed. This caused a major re-write in this and several other places in the timeline.

The scene with the M&M’s at momma Saborio’s house, actually happened with my nephew in Ohio. I have taken him sailing in the Caribbean, and he is now a bartender in Chicago. I guess the warm weather thing hasn’t kicked in yet?

The idea of marketing clothing in the US came from a similar story my sister told me, about a man from California that has all of his hi-end leather products made in the Dominican Republic, and sold in the United States. In this book, Lisa’s #fashion insights lead to franchise empire in the United States.

Since I approved the release of this book, I have wrote several more books that you… may… eventually see. I am learning as I go, and as I look back at each book that is published, I wish I had a time machine to go back and change several things. I was advised by a more successful writer… “Just throw it out there and keep writing!”  That’s what I am doing, and after about three more books, there is one called “The Wa-Bak Machine”  all about a time machine, about the size of a smart-phone.

Please go to ADBanyan.com where you can read more about Amaretto with Coffee before you click on the link to Amazon. The Glow, will hopefully be in print before Christmas. It’s very… adult, but for those of you with no restrictions, it’s a definite must have.

Thanks for stopping!

I jumped out of the car and walked behind it smiling at the
guys in the next car as I shook my head. I spun Lisa around and
pushed her against the car. I put my face about 12″ from hers.

        “STOP! If you would just shut up and listen to me, you
would see that there is a bigger picture involved here! I have no
intention of leaving you here in Costa Rica. I want to help you
get your business started and then we can sail all over the world
getting new ideas for fashion as we go. You can email your designs
back to Costa Rica and we just keep on going. We can travel, I can
write my next book, and we can live happily ever after! GET IT?”

        “Ever after?” as she calmed down.
