Epiphany said to Chastity

with that deep growling

voice of hers: “I’m

going to the supermarket.

Want anything dear?” But

Chastity was too shy

and demure to say

anything in reply except

to pass to her

sister a shopping list

several yards long. But

her sibling accepted it

with almost ecstatic delight.

She trotted off to

the market, just down

the colonnaded avenue to

Mystique’s Groceries and Other

Mysteries store where she

spent the whole afternoon

in blissful ecstasy until

they had to remove

her forcibly and send

her home with an

empty basked that upset

Chastity who locked herself

up and ended up

inconsolable and destitute cos

no young caller is

going to waste time

on someone locked up

and unreachable when there

lies Epiphany readily available

and accessible to woo.

I enjoy solo wargaming and writing. The first caters to the boy that never grew up; the latter satisfies a deep desire to communicate. Cheers.
