Five Star Wife
“What a dump!”
“Sun, you said. Sun, sand and sea! And there they are!” Sue gestured at the gritty beach with the sullen Pacific half a mile away. The sun beat down. It was thirty degrees and only ten in the morning.
“Five star luxury, you said” grumbled Jeff.
“The hotel is lovely. If you don’t fancy the beach, go back, sit by the pool and ogle that American girl!”
“I didn’t…” began Jeff.
“Oh, it’s all right. Look, but don’t touch.”
“Anyway, I’d rather be with you.”
“Then sit here, in the shade, and quit moaning.”
The barman smiled at her.
“Could I get a sangria for me and a beer for him?”
“Of course, Senora. I’ll bring them to your table.”
“Do you have wifi?”
“Naturally.” He handed her a printed card. “Network. Password.”
Sue strolled back to Jeff and ruffled his hair.
“Miserable old git,” she said, tenderly.
