It had been such a wonderful night.
Jeb had been romantic and loving, just as she’d planned.
She snickered to herself. There was life in the old crock pot yet, and the secret of eternal youth was hers for the taking. Jeb sure did taste good, though his blood was a bit on the salty side. Still, there was plenty of it, and plenty of him, so she had a good reserve store for the time being.

Mam would be tucked up in bed, so she could creep in unnoticed. The old bag of bones was past caring about her anyway.
She was just about to insert her key in the lock when the door changed texture and she was faced with a solid metal frame and unfamiliar door knocker.
It came to life and boomed
‘Curfew was three hours ago! Where have you been?’
Win stepped back sharply. This was totally unexpected.
‘Don’t bother lying. I know about Jeb and your plans. You’ll have to pay to come home.’
‘What the hell does that mean? I live here!’
‘Not unless you cough up……………’
Win thought for a minute. This was not going at all to plan, and she had to get inside to preserve her precious burden.
‘OK. OK. How much?’
Mam cackled as the metal rusted in front of Win’s eyes.
‘I don’t want money. I want a share. You’ve said yourself, there’s plenty of him. Gimme some.’


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! In November 2020, we lost our beloved 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. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. 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.
