Mr Binks challenged me to a #replyfiction this week so here it is. To read Binks’ story called Promises, click here. Over to you next week Binks!
She was working as a waitress in a cocktail bar.
That much was true.
Why do you keep saying that?
Sorry, keep going.
I walked into the bar, feeling pretty good about myself. I’d just won a promotion and bought a new car. She promised me everything. Said we belonged together.
And you believed her?
She was very convincing. Very good at what she did. I proposed that very night.
And this was…?
…30 years ago today.
And now you’re working as a waiter in a cocktail bar?
I told you… she was very good at what she did.
