Dylan Hughes hosts the First Line Friday writing challenge.
I know it’s Saturday now, but it was late coming into my reader this week.
Check it out here and play along.
Your line for this week is:
It only takes a little bit of lace to ruin a marriage.
‘It only takes a little bit of lace to ruin a marriage, and I would have gotten away with it too had it not been for one small overlooked detail.’
Simon looked up from his pint at his brother.
‘What did you do this time?’ he asked resignedly.
‘That new secretary is a wildcat, and we had a lunch time dalliance.’
‘You never learn Bill. You need to keep it in your trousers.’
‘Yeah well, everything was a bit rushed, and the lace in question was thrown into the glove compartment, which is where Amelia found them.’
‘Don’t tell me you tried to pass them off as a gift for her? Oh god………..’
Bill looked sheepish and took off his sun glasses.
‘I forgot she has an allergy to lace. She hit me and is now filing for divorce.’
Simon choked on his beer at the beautiful shiner Bill now sported.
‘I don’t blame her actually. I’m tempted to black the other one.’
