Snippet from Sunshine in Madrid
We all jump on the bus and there is no hesitation as we climb the stairs to the top floor. We don’t care it’s raining, it is all part of the memories that we have. We all have our umbrellas up and to be honest we can’t really see anything.
All of a sudden Sydney jumps up and starts shouting “Thief, thief”. We all start looking around us to see what we missed, the bus has stopped and Sydney is making her way down the stairs as fast as she can. We are all staring out at the street when we see Sydney running after this woman “Thief, Thief” she is shouting, everyone is looking at her. The woman turns around and speaks to her in Spanish and Sydney starts talking to her gesticulating with her hands. At this stage we are all laughing on the bus, we can’t believe what has happened. I see the lights change and I run down the stairs to make sure the bus doesn’t leave without her, the other girls are shouting “Sydney come on just leave it” out the top of the bus.
She hears us and turns around and starts walking back to the bus, she jumps on and the driver is swearing at her in Spanish. She just walks past him and walks up the stairs and when she gets to her seat she just flops down in her seat.
Molly is the first to regain her composure “Sydney what the hell were you doing? The bus could have left without you!”
She is out of breath and when she gets some breath back she says “That lady stole my umbrella and it cost a lot of money. I thought it was lost and when I saw it moving down the street I didn’t think, I just reacted.”
We all look at her and then she starts smiling and she holds up her umbrella “Look I got it back” well we laughed, and laughed so much I think we all needed the toilet.
When the bus pulled up to Gran Via we were still laughing, the bus driver was muttering away in Spanish when we walked past him and I think he was glad we were getting off his bus.
Snippet Till Death Us Do Part
I made sure I set my alarm extra early because I didn’t want to be in bed when he wakes up and I need to get ready for my interview. I get out of bed and go into the bathroom to have a shower and put my make up on. When I walk back into the bedroom, Felix is awake, he looks at me and says “I’ve put your clothes out that I want you to wear to the interview, I don’t want you looking sexy for anyone else, only me.” I don’t know what to say, I’m speechless. On one hand I want to tell him where to go and that he can’t dictate what I wear or do and on the other hand I don’t want a repeat of last night. Ever!
I look at him and say “I’ll wear what you want me to wear if it makes you happy.” I have to look away because he smiles like he has won a prize.
“Oh baby that makes me so happy.” He gets up off the bed where he was sitting and walks over to me. He reaches out to give me a hug and I flinch, he looks angry but he still wraps his arms around me and hugs me tight. “I love you babe” he kisses me. I try not to kiss him back but he just gets more aggressive in his kiss, so eventually I have to kiss him back, even though it makes me feel sick. “See how much easier things are Tasha when you do what I want” he says. He let’s me go and then walks off to the bathroom.
I put on the clothes he left for me:- a dark trouser suit and a high neck blouse! I let a breath out that I didn’t even know I was holding, I can feel my shoulders slump and I can feel a tear falling down my cheek. I rub it away and turn to go downstairs. “I’m going downstairs to put the coffee machine on” I say to the bathroom door. I don’t know whether he heard me or not because I just walk out of the room.
I go into the kitchen, put the coffee machine on and start preparing our breakfast, I usually have muesli and Felix has toast. I can hear him coming down the stairs so I put an empty bowl in the dishwasher pretending I have eaten, because right now I don’t think I can eat without vomiting everywhere. Felix sits down and starts eating his toast. “I’m going off to my interview now” I say busying myself with my handbag. “I’ll see you at work later.”
I turn to walk towards the front door and he catches my arm. I stand still. He pulls me to him. “Don’t I get a goodbye kiss? I Love you Tasha.” He kisses me. I let him, then I walk towards the door. “Oh and Tasha I’ll take you to lunch today.”
I just say “OK” and walk through the door and into my car.
