‘You’re late,’ he hissed.
‘Sorry. Traffic.’
‘Really?  Which way did you come?’
‘Down the High Street, and turned left. Road works.’
‘You’re lying. There are no road works in the High Street.’
‘I didn’t say there were. We got caught behind road works on the way and had to do a detour.’
‘Yeah? Which way.’
‘Through the Co-op car park.’
‘What?’
‘The driver took a wrong turn and we ended up in the Co-op car park.’
‘I bet,’ he said snidely.

She stewed on his words, thinking back to his disbelief and accusations on other occasions. It caused her to lose track of time and her location.

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.

    Completely unexpected ending – but Good for her! 🙂
    Off topic – I am now getting spam Comments from ‘sexy’. Akismet is catching them all at the moment and I delete them. Just wondered if it was happening to you too? Thanks.

    • Hi Sci. A couple of days ago ‘Sexy’ hit my spam folder to the tune of 28, and I had 5 go straight into trash so it looks like whatever has been done is working.

        Thank you 🙂
        I had the same as you with spam Likes to my comments. Once WP cleared that up then I got 2 days of over 20 spam Comments in an hour; just a dash or exclamation mark. These did go to my spam folder. I see today I have No spam comments, so Hooray – I hope WP has fixed this now.
        Just makes you wonder at all the hackers out there!
