Sandi Layne | @sandyquillI have to say it was the ending that nailed it for me in this tale. Good heavens, he's still there? Eep! Yep, that's what did it.

I didn't like the ending of this story - I wanted to ring the younger sister's neck because she was being selfish and probably didn't have an idea of how bad the guy was. But my fury was such that Olivia nailed it. She made me grit my teeth and hope the older sister Gibbs Slaps the younger. :)

You gotta love a man whose main focus is you and even your fierceness turns him on. I was right there with Circe and yet couldn't help falling for Adrius.
Week 126 Winner
Siobhan says: I loved Anna's second approach to the prompt because I've been there and experienced that. I've been the expert and had a guy tell me how it is in my field. Anna captured the feeling of condescension beautifully in so few words. Nicely done.
Posh, social setting.
Business partners and clients all belonged to dear husband, and I was invited as the +1. Shit, that’s nice.
Colorful cocktails and exquisite Amuse-bouches all over the elegant place. Beautiful people drifting in and out of high-ceilinged rooms.
Conversing with an important CEO, I mentioned that I fly planes.
He jumped on that, and started a long monologue on how he took two lessons on a Bi-plane twenty-five years ago. He drifted into aerodynamics and meteorology, looking mighty pleased with himself.
At the end of his monologue, he turned and asked, ”What do you fly, darling?”
Congratulations Two Time Winner Anna, Sandi, Olivia, and Cara! Don't forget to claim your badges and display them with pride. You certainly earned it!
