Cudi made it to the cabin and helped Terri to prepare dinner.Mashed potatoes and Mushroom Soup for dinner,simple but that kept them full until they felt like a giant meatball.Their tummy meters showed the red alert for being too full.Cudi felt that she needed to finish her 50th page no matter how hard it could be and so she gets back on her writing desk.
"It's a terror for John and Peter after they made their great escape from the tower of doom.The cat lady saw them....." the last piece that Cudi wrote earlier in the morning.
Suddenly,Barry's last words were lingering in her mind "You can't keep yourself 'Cycling' that way forever,I'll be glad to help you".She kept thinking about Vigdis,all this time she could be asking for almost anything but why Vigdis?Why she wanted a bicycle that has been her buried wish for years?That's it! Cudi started to write a new kind of story,a story that never have been "Novelled" before.That is The Writer and her Bicycle!
Her Parker pen were dancing on 10 pieces of papers that night.Barry's last words are her missing notes of a symphony,thanks to Vigdis,the vibrant red bicycle.Cudi managed to finish her last sentence before going to bed and decided to meet Barry tomorrow,for her first lesson and also to finish her novel.She felt that Vigdis has helped her a lot.All because of Vigdis and her weakness,she can start writing a novel that might win for Best Writer Award or even mentioned as New York Times bestselling novel.
Night says goodbye,morning says hi.A sunny ray gleamed upon Cudi's window to wake her up but she still didn't move a muscle.The bed is married to Cudi,but the smell of Terri's pancakes and maple sauce syrup finally separates them.She puts her bunny slippers on and went downstairs.
Cudi: Morning Terri Cherry
Terri: Good morning Miss Cudi,you look a little tired you must be working all night.How was it?
Cudi:I did work all night but it seems to be worth it.I wrote a whole new story! 10 pages of them last night and looks like we both have a lot of work to do.By the way,where's Vigdis?I thought I brought Vigdis inside
Terri: I parked Vigdis at the porch,the living room is too small for the three of us.
Cudi: Oh well,as long there's a roof Vigdis will be fine,you're right this cabin is too small maybe we should go somewhere else next year,Palm Springs might be nice.
Cudi enjoyed 5 pieces of Terri's pancakes and a cup of joe brightened her morning.Last night mashed potatoes and mushroom soup has been fully digested in 4 hours,Cudi has quite a big appetite.Then she remembered her date with Vigdis and Barry,so she took a quick bath,puts on her sweats and Nike kicks. She pushes Vigdis until where she met Barry,The Swanwick Lake Bridge.
Barry: Morning grumpy Cudi,I thought you wouldn't be interested with my offer.
Cudi: Fine,I admit it! I can't ride a bicycle,but I am here to learn and this is the first time that I trusted a stranger who wear the same clothes like yesterday to help me.
Barry: See,you can't lie to a guy that has been a son of a bicycle store owner.Besides we are all strangers at first and then become friends.I thought a writer like you would be smart enough to think about that,Messer.
Cudi: Okay Mr Smartypants,first of all I wrote about the ugly reality that opened millions of eyes that experience betrayals in their life and I prove to the world that life isn't a movie to be scripted to have happy endings.Liars,backstabbers,betrayal and even strangers.Enough! Let's start the first lesson.
They start their first lesson that morning near a foxtail field.Barry taught Cudi with full attention and patience.He caught her before she gets her first fall,pushing Vigdis's back to help her to balance herself and that went well for almost two weeks. Cudi managed to record her bicycle lesson with Barry in 300 pages after she returns to her cabin in every afternoon for the last 14 days and she spends her evening and night on her writing desk.She wrote about Barry and his patience to teach her to ride the bicycle and all the places they went for practice such as the abandoned the old man Peabody's farm.She changed Barry's name into Bruce,and changed her name into Laura in her novel.
On the 16th morning,Cudi finally can ride Vigdis without Barry's help,so she cycles all the way down the hill from the cabin until the bridge.Barry was sitting on the bench wearing the same old red plaid shirt and seasoned coloured jeans.
Barry: Impressive,looks like you wont be needing me anymore.Messer is not a mess and grumpy Cudi becomes happy Cudi.
Cudi: Haha,thanks for teaching me to ride Vigdis,without you I might be 'cycling' like I used to.
Barry: You helped yourself,I'm just a friend who just watched and be there when needed.Since you can ride Vigdis on your own,How about we play a game that rhymes with "You asked for it".You can ask whatever you like and I answer all your questions But the questions must be about me.Not about why is the sky is blue? or why is the grass is green?Just ask what do you want to know about me.
I will be working on the iv part. :D Thx for reading.
