Title: Lucy’s Great Escape

Lucy’s need to erupt drove her to get out of the wretched building. The ugly red tile floor blurred as she pushed her feet faster to get out of the place that once held the sweet promise of a happy ever after with Alan. Now, all she could see was the cruel blond they met at the club last night. She hadn’t expected to see her here and in nothing more than the t-shirt Lucy bought Alan last year to celebrate their anniversary.

“Lucy, wait up,” Alan called from behind her.

She increased her pace. Just a few more feet and she’d be out the door.

His hand landed above hers on the handle. “Don’t leave. Let me explain.”

She turned and looked at Alan only this time her love blinders had disappeared. “What did I ever see in you?”

“Maybe we should talk tomorrow after you’ve had the chance to calm down.” He backed away.

“It wasn’t a coincidence that we ran into that skank last night.” She didn’t even need to ask. The reality of his heartless cruelty was evident in his pathetic expression. “How about if you promise to never call me again and I’ll promise not to rip you limb from limb.” When he didn’t respond, she took a quick step towards him.

His flinch was so satisfying that she laughed as she opened the door and left the asshole behind.
