Temper can be destructive.
Danny remembered those words spoken to him as a child when he’d lashed out and put his six year old fist through the glass door pane.  He still bore the scars and was lucky he had the use of his fingers as the retraction through the shards cut deep.
He blamed his brother of course, who , if he hadn’t have ducked, would have taken the full force of the blow. Best it was Danny’s fist rather than his brother’s head.
Now at thirty three, inquisitive amber eyes were looking up at him. After a few ponderous minutes, his daughter said

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 an elderly dog called Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. 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.
