Fedeltà #71

by

By now, Tony pretty much had contempt for Marcia. Any love had evaporated years ago, but he still maintained rights over her. With Tony disinterested, Marcia attempted to enjoy herself, having now ‘done her duty’ by him. She slept around, very carefully, so that Tony or any of his people wouldn’t find out. But of course he did. After all, he had a phone locating app.

But now he had a family too. Two lovely little kids needing a mum, so Marcia was allowed to continue living, under almost custodial conditions, while her lovers never resurfaced, each having suddenly disappeared.

    I hope she was worth it to all those poor schmucks!

    By the way, these titles are great. I tend to gloss over that when I'm commenting but I do notice them.

    Thanks a lot Christopher. I love writing the titles almost as much as writing the drabbles. I try to get some twist or double relevance in them. I always hope people notice them. When they appear as nano-chapters in book format, the titles tend to work quite hard.

    Hear hear Christopher. Neville, I find the titles, especially in a series, very difficult to create, but yours seem to come quite naturally and add an extra dimension to the drabble. Still thoroughly enjoying this awesome series, btw :)

    Thanks Drew. Time for me to plan out a bit more of the story... anything to delay the HMRC SA deadline on the 31st! My drabbles tend to be displacement activities, but the taxman waiteth not! ☹️
