It's back to being warm and dry and lovely here, so I think we might have a reprieve for a little while longer. I wouldn't say no to that, because I'm about to start pulling my hair out and bid goodbye to my sanity as the kids start 2 weeks of Easter break tomorrow. *sigh*
But that's neither for here nor now (thank goodness!) so let's indulge while we still can. Does indulgence have any other name than SSS on Sundays? Not really! :)

Lovers' tiff, Ash thought and immediately paused in his step, but he was wrong— she wrestled free, shoved the man away, and slapped him.
That was when Ash knew everything would turn into a total muck up —the look of fury on the other man's face clearly stated he wouldn't take the hit lying down, not in front of the small group that had assembled down in the garden when they too heard the angry discussion.
