Time To Write: Sentence Starter 33

Over to Rachel:

‘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.’
‘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.
Roused from her thoughts, she looked blankly at the speaker.
‘I’m sorry. Could you repeat that please?’
The vicar began again:
‘Do you, Celia Marie Joiner take this man……’
He didn’t get any further.
Looking her groom straight in the eye, she said
‘Sorry. No. I don’t.’
With that, she turned on her kitten heels and fled from the church.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    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!

    Great ending! 🙂
