“ Well ’Allo, there yourself. What’s that mate? This seat next to me, taken? Why no, nat at all and Monk would consider it a pleasure to have a bit of company.”

“Monk? Why that’s me-self mate, isn’t it now? Robert A. Delaney, grey-eyed native of Sherriff Street at your service, but everyone calls me Monk due to my being left on the doorstep of an Abbey as a babe. Guess me, mum, whoever she was, dint want to raise a wild Irishman like me, wink...”

“Anyways, It’s a pleasure to make your acquaintance my friend, though there’s some who would not see it as being a pleasure to meet me, ’atoll.”

“Oui Mate is that a worry crossing your eye, no need, only Monk here having his bit of a joke on meself. Sit yourself on down.“

“Aye, to answer your obviously unasked question about my accent. I’m Irish, born and raised by the docks of Dublin.”

Dracyy: Survival is difficult particularly when you are from Texas where it’s hot and you crash in the Arctic. Amelia was not ready for winter never mind the hunky back woodsman she found. Sweet story about two stubborn people who might just learn to love again if they don’t kill each other first.
