Weekend Writing Warriors
George offered Beth one of the big winged chairs in his lounge to sit on. Then he sat down in a chair opposite, saying, “When you're ready, there's no hurry.” He gave her hand a gentle, reassuring pat, then sat silent. Time had taught him to let people speak in their own time when something was up. Finally, after wiping a few silent tears away, Beth looked up at George, took a breath and through shaky words, began to speak.
“Thank you for seeing me, after all it's been so long, and first of all let me apologize on Jake's behalf for what happened at Grace's funeral.”
George nodded slowly, then smiled and thanked her.
“I know you two haven't spoken for a while, but Jake's been acting strange lately, and we're usually very close. I think he's having an affair.”
