The Stella Returns. By CpSingleton © 2014

Stella said to leave her be.
That’s just what I did.
Until that wimple walk, which made her seem tipsy, could be seen on the dark side of the Café, making her way unsteadily to her table. The cutlery and condiments were arranged and rearranged, until she was satisfied. She was, fastidious like that.
She was a little OCD. So she said to anyone who’d bother to listen.
A pastime I learned not to be part of, over time.

Because she noticed the glazed look that frosted my eyes when she played the old imaginary disorder she would screech like a horny fox if I so much as put the sauce on the wrong shelf, just to remind me.
After a while, I would deliberately move it to test her. She never once noticed under such controlled conditions. So, I then put it in the bedroom and then into the bathroom, before throwing it into the outside bin,
She still didn’t notice.

She did eventually end the relationship because I went through a phase of wearing odd socks to work.

Anyway, a week later, life had bored her, so, she’d come back, expecting me to open my arms and welcome her into my world!
Which, of course, I did.

Funny how life goes, eh?

About Chris42

I am a liar! A maker-uper of stories! If this was the 16 (c) I'd be burned as a witch. Fank goodness it is not, eh?! I have four children: two wonderful girls, a fantastic lad and Leeds United. I have no strict genre. I write children's poetry and stories, to edgy, stronger themes. Up until now I have stored them for my own and my family's viewing. Last year i thought bugger it and starred in several short films. One, Playground, which is on the BBC Film Network, used the monologue that I wrote for the audition. You should've seen the face of the receptionist, of the Manchester hotel, where the audition was being held, as I turned up dressed as the psychopath, Gordon. It got the desired effect! I then moved up to Cumbria and wrote and appeared in several live performances on stage. 2012. A local artist, Kayleigh Richardson, commissioned me to write a poem for her to paint a representation. I sent her, The Rise of the Robot Monkey Army. Kayleigh painted a fantastic piece that blew my mind! From that we are collaborating on the Jacob Bear series of stories. Oh and Two's Company is to published, along with seventeen other Sci Fi short stories as part of a collection. Not a bad start to the, so called, last year of the Earth. Now is the time to show the rest of you. I take my themes wherever i see them, whether in reality or dream-world. I hope you enjoy. If not tell me why. If so tell me why. Many thanks and be safe. So far I have published: Jacob Bear's first Christmas,https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B007GK872A (UK) http://www.amazon.com/dp/B007GK872A (USA) Jacob Bear Goes to School https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B007JD3OKY (UK) http://www.amazon.com/dp/B007JD3OKY (USA Jacob's First Words https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B007VZWPSC (UK) & http://www.amazon.com/dp/B007VZWPSC (USA) Space Here https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B007H96M90 (UK) &http://www.amazon.com/dp/B007H96M90#reader_B007H96M90 The Rise of the Sponge Cake Moon https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B007WWZ16M (UK) & http://www.amazon.com/dp/B007WWZ16M (USA) © Madstoffa, 2012.
