another one of her antics

it was a charming night
She really
liked a man who could
drive her from
the restaurant after having
quite some glasses
to drink
and he was that man

He drove her to
his house
and helped her out of the
car like a
gentleman
and even held her hand
all the way to
the door

Her heart was pounding
and her brain too. A voice
kept saying
'He's the one. He's the one!'

It was silenced
when she saw two small
animal heads on his
doorstep. A cat's and
a bunny's. The doormat
was soaked with
their blood

She froze and
the gentleman said, “Oh crap,
not this shit again.”
And he walked up to
them and kicked them
to the side like mini soccer balls

“My ex-wife,” he said with a shrug. “Just
another one of
her antics. You get used
after a while.”
He opened the door and
motioned her in

She hesitated

  1. Brilliant!!
    Reminds me of a short story I read some years ago by one of my favourite authors – Laura Hird.

    You should check her out if you haven’t already. Reckon you’d quite like her… 👍🖤

    1. I’ve heard of Laura Hird before (from recommendations). And I think I have her “Hope and Other Stories” as e-book somewhere.

      Will definitely check it out soon.
      Thanks! (•̀ᴗ•́)و

      1. Ah brilliant!!

        Chuffed you know of her. She’s such a hidden gem of an author in my opinion.

        I looked up the short story I was reminded of. It’s called ‘Of Cats and Women’ from her “Nail and Other Stories” collection.

        Definitely worth reading all of her works. There’s not much, but what there is is standout 👍🖤

  2. I am extremely impressed together with your writing abilities and also with the structure for your weblog. Is that this a paid subject matter or did you customize it your self? Either way keep up the excellent quality writing, it is rare to see a great weblog like this one these days.
