She wants her fill of him. Every inch of his skin, his every word a morsel to be savoured, to make her satiated.

“She trudges from one end of the day to the next until she opens a book and disappears inside. After the fifth Jenga-style coffee table of books, she sees she needs a place to go. The lounge may cope with another two tables – which she calculates to be around twenty books – but that’s only about another month of escapism.”
Louise Worthington, Distorted Days

“The memories of her marriage are like silt at the bottom of a water trough, stirred up by John’s departure to be with Lisa, turning them a murky green. If only it were just a matter of taking a tea-strainer to the silt.”
Louise Worthington, Distorted Days

“Since living alone, she’s taken to leaving post-it notes in case something happens to her when she is out of the house and no one knows where to find her. She has a drawer full; over time she’s found it’s possible to recycle them as she rarely goes to new places now that Godfrey isn’t around.”
Louise Worthington, Distorted Days

Topics Mentioning This Author

“Love is a smoke made with the fume of sighs.”
William Shakespeare, Romeo and Juliet

“By three methods we may learn wisdom: First, by reflection, which is noblest; Second, by imitation, which is easiest; and third by experience, which is the bitterest.”
Confucious

“The memories of her marriage are like silt at the bottom of a water trough, stirred up by John’s departure to be with Lisa, turning them a murky green. If only it were just a matter of taking a tea-strainer to the silt.”
Louise Worthington, Distorted Days

“I stood still, vision blurring, and in that moment, I heard my heart break. It was a small, clean sound, like the snapping of a flower's stem.”
Diana Gabaldon, Dragonfly in Amber

“Since living alone, she’s taken to leaving post-it notes in case something happens to her when she is out of the house and no one knows where to find her. She has a drawer full; over time she’s found it’s possible to recycle them as she rarely goes to new places now that Godfrey isn’t around.”
