Breakfast Dance - a 55 word story

by Judith A. Lawrence

The handsome man at the opposite table swivels his head at the tall cool slim blonde entering the breakfast cafe. The ordinary woman sitting with him adjusts her chair accordingly. She pretends to ignore her husband's distraction, smoothes her hair, licks her lips, stirs her coffee round and round, laughs too shrilly at his comment.
