“How was she?”, “Is she coming down?” his wife asked,

You said what?” You do realise its 900 miles round trip.

Suddenly, the room turned chilly.

  1. Thanks Beth for your kind words. No I have not had any professional training, I simply write from what I know or have experienced, or maybe witnessed. I am off to explore your blogs.


  2. Thanks for stopping by Miriam.


  3. What a wonderful writer you are. Have you had any training?! LOVE your writing.


  4. I like the balanced chicken, too. And the last line. ~Miriam


  5. This piece captures the mood really nicely.
    I like this line: “He looked up, his chicken balanced on the end of his fork.” The sentence itself is balancing, teetering, after which things take a turn for the worse.
