(100 word challenge)

“We believe that people stick together when they make a commitment.”

He curled his upper lip. When did Mom jump on that bandwagon? After Dad died?

“We’re not breaking up. We’re taking a break.”

“Sounds like a break up to me, Joe, and you know what the Church says about divorce!”

Living with a born again mother is hell. “We still love each other and we’re seeing a counselor…and how did we get started on this anyway? It’s absolutely none of your business.”

She softened. “I know all about heartbreak, Joe.”

He was having none of it.

(Yes, this is Joe Taylor from Inheritance with his mother.)
