Ear ache

‘Are you listening to me?’

‘As if I’ve a choice!  Why don’t you give it a break, put on the kettle, and make yourself a piping hot cup of shut the fuck up.’

‘How dare … I’m … it’s you that’s being unreasonable here, I’m …’

‘Me?  I’m not the one shouting and raving.’

‘Because of you!’

‘I’m going to the pub.’

‘As if that’ll solve anything!’

‘It’ll solve my ear ache.’

‘You’ll have a bigger problem if you leave now.’

‘Fine.’

‘Fine?  You’ll be looking for a new home!’

‘For once we agree!  I’ll pack when I get back.’


A drabble is a story of exactly 100 words.

Oh, that's quite the scene, Rob. Makes me wonder what might happen when he gets back from the pub...
