The right kind of wrong

‘Are you sure you know what you’re doing?’

‘No, but that’s the thrill of it.  I haven’t felt this alive in years.’  Paula twirled on the spot.

‘But he’s, he’s ...’

‘A little rough around the edges.’

‘More like spiky to the core.’

‘Exactly.  He’s edgy.  Spunky.  He lives in the moment and those moments can’t be dull.’

‘He’s a troublemaker and he’ll get you into trouble.  And break your heart.  Probably bruise your arms and legs as well.’

‘And maybe somewhere else!’

‘But at a price!  He’s all wrong for you, Paula.’

‘But he’s the right kind of wrong.’

A drabble is a story of exactly 100 words.
