Six Sentence Sunday- 6/12: Debra & David

Today’s post is from the new project! Yay. I was editing and rewriting some scenes I wrote in April and decided I’d make this section my Sunday Six.

ETA– A little background: Debra is an Adminstrator at a Junior High school, married for 12 years to her high school sweetheart. David is a young, virile, man. He teaches P.E. at the school and is the opposite of Willard. His youth and the excitement of being with him makes him impossible to resist. Against her better judgement, she had an affair. The night before this scene, she’s just told her husband about David, so things are tense.


Debra sputtered, her eyelids twitching in mounting irritation. “You thought I would just pack a bag and come see you the night after I tell my husband I want a divorce?”

“Not like that, but the whole point of coming clean was so that you could be free to live your life the way you want to live it, including coming to see me when you feel like it.”

“David, I have a twelve year old at home that doesn’t know her family is falling apart, so no…you will not be seeing me tonight.”

“Guess not, since you’re the boss,” he mumbled after along beat of silence, his frustration coming through loud and clear.

“That’s right, and don’t you forget it.”

  1. Oh, he’s really not the sharpest tool in the shed, and she’s made a mess of things. This feels like a slo-mo train wreck, and I can’t look away. *cringe* ;)
