Running Water


They had come here for some privacy and as he kissed her, she heard a plaintive cry pierce the sound of the running water in the cooling stream.
She rose to her knees to listen and the glower Gavin gave her twisted his handsome face. . As she stood and reached for her bag, she could tell he was displeased.
Where do you think you’re going?’ he demanded, pouting.
‘There’s an animal in distress close by so I’m going to find it and help if I can.’
‘Fat lot of good you could do,’ he sniggered. ‘It’ll probably bite you for your trouble. Leave it, and come back here.’
He patted the blanket beside him.
She saw a dark side to him and cursed herself for being so blind. His good looks only went skin deep, yet it had been so easy to cling to a romantic fantasy.
He didn’t know she was a vet and just saw her as a blonde bimbo to hang onto his arm and another notch on his bedpost.

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.
