Tony’s talent lay in making a bad situation, feel less bad. It was one of the reasons Maria had married him. Tonight, was no exception. Stuck in a tiny room at the B&B, Tony had suggested she take a bath and unwind. Stepping out of the tub she heard the door of their room open and shut.


Maria peered out the bathroom door. Tony held a pizza box in one hand and a wine bottle in the other.

“Is that a 2009 Nobile Di Montepulciano?”

“And a margherita.”

Maria smiled. They would get through the next few days, together.


Keep on writing.

  1. Well written. I could feel the tenderness between them and between them verses the world. You don’t need the comma in the first sentence. Sorry, Grammar Nazi rears it’s (my) head? Great story.
