Mrs. Manners

His expression told me I had shocked him, and I was grateful my response to his assault was visible to most of our guests. Grateful too that I had decided on acrylic nails, these were going to leave a mark.

Seeing I was unharmed, my beloved whispered, ‘they’re waiting for us to cut the cake.’

I released my death grip on the old man’s bruised scrotum and entered the banquet hall. His vile voice silenced, his florid face tear-streaked.

Smiling my sweetest smile, I turned to my father-in-law, “you won’t be forgetting your manners again, will you?”
