“How was the trip?”
There was Charlie, sitting in his chair, reading the paper, looking the same as he had when she left on Friday.
“Good. Are the kids ok?”
This was her life. Charlie and the kids. At least Charlie understood that she needed to get away sometimes. A little gambling; a few shows. Nothing more. Of course it was always nice to be asked, even by that man claiming to be a doctor. “Wilson,” he’d said, with a come-on so blatant, it was laughable.
Not a joke to share with Charlie. She’d keep this one to herself.
