365 Prompt: August 5 2017


He’d forgotten it. 

How convenient, I thought. Let me pay for something yet again. 

And this was supposed to be a date? 

Yeah right. 

I should have known better. 

So why had I agreed to it?

I was a masochist, clearly. 

I thought I’d learned my lesson but obviously not. 

Something was different though… I couldn’t quite put my finger on it. 

A smile tugged at the corners of my mouth. 

Ah, that was it. 

There’d been a power shift. I wasn’t going to put up with the bullshit anymore. I was going to dish it out, nice and thick. I was going to be the Vegemite that left a taste in your mouth and made you remember. 

“I’ll be back,” I said, standing up. “I’m just going to the bathroom.” 

Taking my bag, I made my way to the counter, paid for my meal and promptly walked out. 

Tucking my own wallet back into my bag I let myself feel the full rush of enjoyment knowing that he was alone, with nothing.
