Helpful Leddy started out as a short story way back in 2010-ish-maybe. Its an adventure-comedy, telling the story of our hero, Leddy, as he attempts to win back the affections of his ex-girlfriend, Sandy.
But its not as easy as Leddy assumes, as he must first make his way past the people who run the pub where Sandy works, the evil Doris and her dumb, monster-like son, Sylvester.
As the adventure progresses, Leddy and Sandy, along with their friends Fiona and Gary, uncover a whole word of danger, chaos, and excitment, involving drugs, diamonds, runaway rivers, blazing forests, exploding mansions, and a despicable genius behind it all.
I found that the more I worked away at this thing, the larger it became, until it finally expanded into the novella it is today. Its no great piece of literature, just a bit of fun. Enjoy!
