Bits of incriminating evidence were scattered over the surfaces, each item carefully placed on appropriately sized portions of paper towel, as if allowing these things to touch anything in her kitchen would spin the world into wacky space beyond normal, around-the-axis spinning.

I wanted to explain, but I couldn’t, so I let her point and catalog and glare.

“Garlic?” she asked. “Dynamite? A yo-yo?”

We gazed at each other.

“I defended you,” she said. Each word shattered on the floor. “You will give it back. Every. Thing.”

  1. Dear Lime,

    I have been the recipient of the “You will give it back. Every. Thing.” speech and you nailed it perfectly. Loved the yoyo, too. Very good use of the photo prompt.

    Aloha,

    Doug
