2541. A much deserved break
© Bruce Goodman 11 October 2022

Freya had had the foulest of weeks. Her husband had upped and left. Her youngest son had been hit by a car and was in intensive care. The three girls were all crying out for money for their books at school. The neighbour was threatening a court case over a holly tree growing over the fence line. Her bank card had been blocked by the bank for not paying off her banking debts. Her mother had died. She was out of cigarettes. The power company had cut off the electricity because her husband - her ex-husband - hadn't paid. Her oldest son, who was epileptic, had run out of medication.

Enough is enough! Off she went for a long weekend to her beach house. Oh the relief!

Unfortunately it was where ex-hubby had set up shop.
