Today’s 3words are: SQUIRT – RELUCTANT – TORMENT.
And my ongoing story…
“Please…” I said.
Jacqueline laughed. “Please what, squirt?”
“Don’t,” I said, closing my eyes, knowing I was close to tears, and really not wanting to cry in front of these girls. Or anyone, if I could help it.
“Don’t what, squirt?” Jacqueline said, bouncing up and down on me twice.
She squealed with laughter and was about to bounce again when Raven placed her hand on her shoulder, and my tormentor stopped mid-bounce. gazing up at her friend.
Raven said, “Enough.”
Jacqueline fumed. “But-“
“No,” Raven said, offering her hand.
Reluctantly, Jacqueline took it, and I could breathe again.
