Truth and regret

Cathy slammed the front door shut and marched to the kitchen.

‘Are you okay?’ Phil asked from the sofa.

‘No! We played that idiotic game again.’

‘It’s meant to be a book club.’

‘We all agreed that bloody stupid book didn’t deserve any more time.’

She appeared in the doorway, a large glass of wine in hand.

‘Apparently, when you’re asked to tell the truth, saying your biggest regret was having kids is not a good answer.’

‘That’s your biggest regret?’

‘Don’t start, Phil.’

‘But …’

‘I love them, okay! But they’re bloody hard work and cause nothing but grief.’

A drabble is a story of exactly 100 words.

Ah, you never know what Truth or Dare will reveal... I like this one, Rob, and I don't think Cathy's the only one who feels that way about kids.
