Welcome to Tuesday's Tales
This week's Tale is a short snippet including the word 'meat'.
“He came back last night…” The sharpness of Sue’s voice cut through her fantasies like a meat cleaver. “… Waited until this morning and calmly told me he’d applied for and got a decree nisi and as of now we are divorced.”
“D…divorced? You and Tyler are divorced?”
“So he says.” Ignoring the tears plopping on the surface, Sue snatched her hand away and thumped it on the table. Mugs jumped, coffee slurped over the rim, and people at the surrounding tables fell silent.
Startled glances zeroed in on them. Some serious, others disconcerted by the interruption. But none of them looked away when Emma tried to stare them down, so she turned her shoulder, grabbed Sue’s hand again, and fought to unscramble her brain.
She’d thought her friend’s marriage was rock solid. Divorce? No. Sue must have mistaken Tyler’s words. But one look at her friend’s face shattered that illusion.
