“You do not really understand something unless you can explain it to your
Lauren pulled into the driveway, put her car in park, and picked up the white
throw pillow she’d bought, with the navy-blue hand-stitching, and reread the
quote. Yep, that Albert Einstein sure was smart, because his words pretty
much summed up her relationship with her grandmother. The grandmother
whose house she’d just arrived at. The grandmother she was staying with for
the next couple months. The grandmother with the eagle eye, who not only
had a real talent for finding faults but also pointing them out.
As Lauren did with all areas of her life, she’d been documenting this road
trip from her home in Arlington, Virginia, on social media. She turned off the
car now and opened Instagram. She’d posted a story of the pillow she’d
bought for Grams at a quaint general store she’d stopped at earlier. Lauren
smiled, seeing her recent story was already getting quite a few views. One
direct message asked the question.
Why are you in Maine?
She answered this particular follower with the truth. Or, at least, the most
general, simplistic version of the truth.
I’m from Maine. Visiting family.
True enough, she thought. She’d been born in a very small beach town on
the Maine coast called Seaside Cove, not far from Kennebunkport.
Seaside Cove, population twenty.
Okay, maybe it wasn’t that tiny, but she’d definitely felt that way growing
up. Everyone knew everyone else. If she got her hair cut after school, the
employees at the grocery store would know all about it by dinnertime.
Yeah, it was that kind of town.
Growing up in Seaside Cove wasn’t all bad, though. It was beautiful,
actually. The fall foliage was to die for. Summers were full of long days and
beach parties. Lauren was convinced you couldn’t find better seafood
anywhere. The houses that were lucky enough to line the coast had an
absolutely magnificent view of the ocean that extended out for an eternity.
Her grandmother’s house was one of those. Lauren stretched and twisted as
she got out of the car. Then she simply stared at the gorgeous house in front
of her as she took in the familiar and comforting sounds and smells. The
birds, the waves crashing on the beach, the salty sea air mixing with the
sweet scent of Grams’s countless hydrangea bushes.
“You gonna stand there all day gawking or come in?” a rough, scratchy
voice called from the front door.
Lauren rolled her eyes even as she grinned. She grabbed her purse, her
phone, and the present for Grams, and made her way to the house. She’d get
the rest of her stuff later.
