In The Driver’s Seat
“Wait! What are you doing?” Mary grimaced.
“I’m going via Church. It will be faster.”
“Dorchester Lane is quicker.”
“Not this time of day.”
“We routed this a thousand times. Stick with the plan.”
Josef hooked a left past the old stone chapel and sped his way around Hairpoint turn.
“This was a mistake. Hurry, He’s coming!” Mary griped the door tightly leaning into the bend. The car jerked to a halt. They were surrounded, sheep everywhere.
“What? Say I told you…….Whoawoooo…woo.woo.wooo…. Looks like you’ll have to deliver”.
“Good thing I’m a doc.”
“For Christ Sake, you’re a podiatrist”
I couldn’t let another Friday Fictioneers slip past unattended. As always, thanks Rochelle.
Dana, Cute and funny story. That was a great last line. XD Well done. —Susan
Thanks Susan. I was having fun.
Great suspense in this story that ends with a laugh. Nice.
Dear Dana, This is such a good story, and I suppose a podiatrist is better than no doctor at all. ha ha . Really, really good story – Thanks for the laugh! Nan 🙂
Thanks Nan! Though I suspect the rest of the deliver could be bumpy between these two. He may be a doctor but he is also a husband that went off script. 🙂
If the baby’s born feet first we’re in business. Clever story and good writing.
That is too perfect. Now even I’m hoping for a breech birth.
Be careful what you wish for, Dana. 😉
If I was a Podiatrist I’d take issue with your story, which was grand and true and amusing. Lovely work. I’m glad you do it so well.
Thanks Doug. I should be carefully picking on Podiatrists. I am a Pisces after all – ruled by my feet. Dana
Oh that’s a fantastic last line. Lovely build of tension and there’s a great sense of the characters from their dialogue.
Thanks Sarah Ann. I was having some fun.
I did……very scary 😉
Yaaayy Dana, you’re back! Missed you, love Red.
Sort off back. I seem to be on slow reentry. 😉
Ha Ha, great job 😉
Great twist! Love it!! 🙂
