She ran upstairs to put a coat of gloss over where her cigarette had rubbed away her lipstick and a spritz of perfume before floating downstairs.

When he drove up, she shook the martinis. As he walked into the study, he frowned. “Let me guess. Overdrafted your account? Wrecked your car?” He dropped his briefcase in the chair, “Oh, damn. Your mother isn’t here, is she?”

Why could he never be satisfied with her genuine signs of affection?

  2. This made me laugh. Perhaps it just hit too close to home for me to consider it fiction!
