Short Story: That Smile

Genre: humour


It was that winsome smile, she concluded. That was the root of all their problems.

If he didn’t have that smile, he wouldn’t have so many dates.

If he didn’t have so many dates, he wouldn’t rack up such a debt.

Worst of all, if not for that smile, her girls wouldn’t keep serving him food he wouldn’t pay for.

No more. It was time to make that smile work for her for a change.

“I have a proposition,” she said, “You don’t have money to pay me back? That’s fine. Pay me back with your time instead.”

He smiled, but his eyes narrowed.

“Sounds interesting. Keep going.”
