Do you want a bowl of soup, jan asked the man sitting next to her at her table. They were at a dinner party, she’d seen him looking at her and then at the array of food on the counter.
Soup? he questioned?
Yes, she said. There is mushroom, and vegetable up there. I’m grabbing some for myself, so shall I go get some for you?
Oh yes please, If you dont mind, he said. So up she got and she quickly went to where the food was being served, two bowls of vegetable soup, she said, and then brought them back to their table.
Are you alone? The man asked.
Yes, jan said wondering why he was looking at her so strangely.
She’d only tried to be friendly and help him to get some food.
All of a sudden he started to stare intently at her. he looked her up and down with an evil glint in his eye.
He was making her very nervous. What should she do? She thought and then she made her excuses and got up.
I need to go now, she said as she turned on her heels and tried to leave.
Oh no you dont, he said jumping up!
I wish I was invisible! Jan thought as she heard herself start shouting at him!
Fuck off! You are a creep!
Go annoy someone else!
Im not going to let you push me around!
By now all the guests had stopped what they were doing, stopped eating, and were looking at them both.
The guy got flustered, and just as he was about to grab her, Jan lifted her leg and kicked him hard!
I said piss off! she shouted, and I meant it!
Now dont talk to me again!
And with that, Jan marched off in the opposite direction.
I have just finished the second of Paulas books, paula light, who blogs over at light motifs.
Her book going dark is a great one. Its a short read, the audio version is 41 minutes in length, so I was able to read it in one sitting! It is a fantastic page turner!
If you love poetry and short stories then this is the book for you! I loved the dark poetry in this volume. My favourite pieces were angel, waves, and kalaideascope.
