Welcome to May 3.
Today’s prompt is: Tell me a tale about a defining moment in your life.
We’d argued, yet again, only this time I didn’t back down.
I can’t even remember what triggered it all off to be honest.
The jelly and trifle, including glass dish, got rammed in my face. It hurt, but tasted OK and I didn’t waste a drop.
She wasn’t so fortunate. I raised my hand and slapped her.
Her face stayed put, but her jaw went sideways.
She couldn’t speak.
I tried not to laugh.
Mum went white, and with Dad took her to the hospital.
I sat down and cried.
The bruise was interesting to explain to anyone who asked.
She may have started it, but I sure as hell finished it.
And learned to keep my temper in check.
