I’ve missed the last couple of weeks so I’m glad to be back in the saddle sotospeak.

Arrogance made him think he’d get away with it, one on an elderly one, but he hadn’t counted on the others or being knocked sideways with a tap in just the right place with a walking stick.

Now he had his back to the very car he’d stolen, hands in pockets looking at the ground.
He wasn’t allowed to sit, remove his hands or raise his head, and to ensure he complied, a laser beam pointing at his head would fire should he so much as twitch.

He began to sweat and needed to pee.
His muscles ached and he experienced a true fear he was going to die should he inadvertently move.

Upstairs, having decided to teach him a lesson in vulnerability, the old boys resumed their card game. The dodgy old fluorescent light below hung on frayed wires and as their host walked across the floor, it shuddered.
‘Wonder how he’s feelin’ . Bet his legs are starting to ache.’
‘His neck’ll hurt more.’
‘Hell. Forget the game! Ten bucks says he’ll pee hisself.’
‘I’ll raise you and go for wobbly legs. You in Mac?’
Pausing by the grimy window he said
‘I’ll pass……… the poor kid’s passed out’.


About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and have a terrible sweet tooth. Best friends are Hubby, our dog Maggie, Bro in NZ, MSM and MOH (and his dog). I am also a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! Due to a nightmare of a house sale in 2014, 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat until April 2017. We made strong friendships both on and off the water, and enjoyed swan and duck families for neighbours. Sadly times change and we were once again house hunting until September. We now reside in a small bungalow a short distance from the beach on the Lincolnshire coast.
