These things tend to be short pieces that may or may not be the beginning of something else. I try to do them in 101 words but sometime not. . M’s prompt was ‘Saucy Suspicions’.
When Ernie came home early he had to park on the street because of the black delivery van hunched on his driveway.
“That’s funny” he said to himself as he pushed against the already slightly ajar front door. “I wasn’t expecting a delivery.”
He stepped into the house and placed his keys in the bowl on the small side table in the entrance. He paused realising his wife’s car keys were in there too. Her car must be in the garage which was odd at this time of day as she would usually be at the tennis club.
“Helen are you home?” he called out as he noticed the blouse she had been wearing this morning thrown over the arm of the plush leather sofa. “Well it has been hot today” he said to himself.
As he walked through the house he noticed more clothes strewn across the floor. He didn’t recognise the jeans, they looked somewhat larger than his but he must just be mistaken.
He picked it up as he went and walked through to the kitchen where he placed it in the washing machine. Helen must have dropped it on the way to doing laundry he thought.
Heading back into the hall he stood at the foot of the stairs. More clothes. She was such a scruffy pup. One of the many reasons he loved her so. “You up there honey?” He called out picking up her bra and panties. They were the good ones…the ones he bought her for valentines day that she hadn’t worn for him yet.
It had been hot out she must have been desperate for a shower after tennis perhaps. He wasn’t sure that those panties were best suited for such physical activities though.
As he rounded the top of the stairs and stepped onto the landing. “Babe?” He called out. There were noises coming from the bedroom. It sounded like she was watching porn. His heart raced. He had been wanting to try something like that for some time but she always said that it was immoral and that it would make baby Jesus cry if they did. Maybe things were going to take a turn for the better in the bedroom.
Hurriedly he shuffled down the hall unbuttoning his trousers and letting them fall to the floor. Frantically unbuttoning his shirt he reached the bedroom door. It was slightly ajar and he could just catch a glimpse of her through the doorway.
It was at this moment that his heart sank and he suspected that perhaps all was not as it might seem. The fact that a strapping great tattooed fellow was currently hanging out of the back of his wife didn’t help much either…
