Mushroom soup

The doorbell rang.
Sarah hoped it wasn’t her ex boyfriend Mike. They had had a brief relationship, but there was something about him that worried her, so she had decided to end it.
That had been two months before. Since then he had been following her around, calling her several times a day to say sorry and begging her for another chance. He hadn’t contacted her for a couple of days, so she was beginning to think he might have given up. Wishful thinking!

There was a good view of the visitor on her doorstep from the front bedroom window. She tried to look out of the window from behind the curtain, but he had saw her. “Damn! I’ll have to let him in now”, she thought as she saw Mike was looking up at her expectantly.

The woman of his dreams

Notizia del: July 2nd, 2014

By Nicola Mabbott

The dream was always the same. He was standing in the hallway of his old flat; the flat his ex-girlfriend, Jennifer, now shared with her husband. First the voices outside getting louder, then the key turning in the lock. The door about to open.

Birthday surprise

Notizia del: May 9th, 2014

By Nicola Mabbott

Today was no ordinary day. It was Jamie’s 11th birthday. When the alarm clock woke him he was in the middle of a wonderful dream. He was dreaming that his mother had finally given him the one present that he had begged for every day as long as he could remember. A dog.

He sighed as he realised it was only a dream, and promised himself that he wouldn’t be sad on his birthday. Then, as he did every morning, he got dressed as quietly as he could. He carefully positioned a pillow horizontally on his bed, and silently pulled his bed cover over it. He didn’t think that his mother would check on him, but if she did, she would think he was fast asleep with covers pulled over his head.

Jamie looked sadly at the family photograph on his bedside table. It had been taken before the divorce, before his dad had left and gone to work in Madrid, long before mum’s new husband, Martin, had come along and spoilt everything. “My dad would let me have a dog”, he thought angrily.
