Enough already …


The Challenge this week was to incorporate the phrase ...would seven prove to be too much?..



Gavin drove home slowly.

Jennifer’s clipped tones on the phone had worried him. Had she found out?

She’d always forgiven his indiscretions, even though the first affair had been only a year after their marriage.  Since then, there’d been his secretary, his dental nurse, a receptionist, a model and Jennifer’s best friend.  And now there was Michelle, a nail technician.

He didn’t want to lose Jennifer. Would seven prove to be too much?

Arriving home, he realised that in fact six had been the final straw, as Jennifer gave him a tight smile and hurried from the house with the dog, several suitcases and Gavin’s best friend.

About Sandra

I used to cruise the French waterways with my husband four or five months a year, and wrote fiction and poetry. Now I live on the beautiful Dorset coast, enjoying the luxury of being able to have a cat, cultivating an extensive garden and getting involved in the community. I still write fiction, but only when the spirit moves me - which isn't as often as before. I love animals, F1 motor racing, French bread and my husband, though not necessarily in that order.

    Ah, we did come to this in similar ways; you’re right. I like your take quite a bit, too; it’s always good to see a turnaround of fair play. 😉

I'd love to hear your views; it reassures me I'm not talking to myself.
