Episode Three: Jealousy

“Why do we have to bring so much stuff? It’s just one weekend and we’re going to be spending it in bed…”

Clara looked at Brian and smiled slightly. He could see the twinkle in her eye and he figured it was his ticket. He silently pumped his arm in excitement behind her back after loading her heavy suitcase into the trunk of his car. Getting into the driver’s seat, he turned to watch Clara climb in on the passenger’s side.

“Ready to go?” he asked.

“Absolutely, let’s get this weekend started!”

On the drive to the Bed and Breakfast, the two of them sang songs along with the radio and chatted about nothing in particular. Arriving a little more than two hours later, Brian was surprised to see quite a few people unloading their cars, carrying luggage to the grandiose building.

It was certainly a sight to behold with its sharp angles and black shingles. Getting out the car, Clara was approached by a young man in a classic bellhop costume. Smiling at Clara, he offered to help her with her bags. As she walked to the back of the car, Brian noticed him stare a little too long at her svelte body.

Jealousy flared within him and he wanted to smash the brazen man’s face in. Clara turned back and noticed the dark look on Brian’s face and smiled. She liked it when he got jealous; it meant he was more attentive to her in the days following each flare. This weekend was going to be even better now…

  1. “Svelt” is a great word for Scrabble, but it is currently receiving too much play in prose. Of course, “lythe” was retired a long time ago for being overused.
