The Payment – Gargleblaster Microstories #213

“I’ll get that,” said Senator Hallsmith, taking the restaurant check.

Esmerelda grinned approvingly, still sticky from their bedtime “exertions” earlier.

“I always pay,” said Hallsmith.

Esmerelda flashed a brilliant smile. Oh you’ll pay alright, she thought. Or your wife sees our videos.

About EagleAye

I like looking at the serious subjects in the news and seeking the lighter side of the issue. I love satire and spoofs. I see the ridiculous side of things all the time, and my goal is to share that light-hearted view.

      Yep, it is, but I’d argue the Senator cheating on his wife is evil-er. And yeah, his actions will stick to him for a long time…unlike his money. 😉

    Let’s hope the Senator isn’t as ruthless a politician as the House of Cards types; otherwise, Esmerelda might have problems of her own…

      Very true. She might find she’s stuck her hand into a meat-grinder. Then again, if she was mentored by a House of Cards type, heaven help the Senator! 😉
