Neither Me Nor Her Dad Like The Water

Sorry son, what did you say your name was again?”

“Billy, ma’am.  Friend of your Sally’s. She asked me to collect you both and take you for a ride on my boat.”

“Wonder why she did that? Neither me nor her dad like the water. Can’t swim see.”

“Don’t worry love you’ll be fine. We’ll go out, watch the stars for a bit, then I’ll take you home.”

If Billy Watson had a heart he might’ve felt sorry for this frail old couple he was about to kill but the money Sally was paying him made all such thoughts disappear.

      • Mike, I am fairly pressed for time just now, holiday season and stuff, but I will try to have a look next week. After that I am not going to do much for 2 or 3 weeks, probably. Good luck, and please remind me from time to time.

  1. What a delightful daughter – a deliciously wicked story – nicely done.

    However, feeling sleepy five minutes after drinking the tea offered by the frail old lady, Billy remembered Sally’s warning about not accepting her mother’s hospitality………

    • Thank you for your comments.
      I loved the twist you left at the end. Now that really would have turned the tables on Billy!
