Aunt Margery On the Mend

PHOTO PROMPT © Rochelle Wisoff-Fields

“Aunt Margery, Martina and I are so relieved that you’re all right. You’ve had a very nasty fall.”

“It’s by the grace of God that I’m still alive.”

“How are you feeling now?”

“A little sore.”

“Can you manage on your own?”


“Promise me, you’ll call me if you need anything.”

“I promise.”

“Martina sends her love. She’s with her doctor now.”

“How is she?”

“She’s fine. The pregnancy is going well.”

“That’s wonderful!”

“Dad and Antonia should be stopping by__”

“I don’t want Antonia here.”

“Why not?”

“I didn’t fall, Laird. She pushed me.”

    1. Well, Aunt Margery has always suspected that there was something malevolent about Antonia and Laird doesn’t trust her but still…it’s hard to accept that someone in the family would do something like that.


    1. Antonia was adopted when she was a child and her adoptive family loved her until she fell in love with Laird instead of his older brother who was in love with her and asked her to marry him. Antonia wants Laird despite the fact that he doesn’t love her, is happily married and is expecting his first child. She will hurt anyone who stands in her way like Aunt Margery. Thanks, Isadora. Am happy you loved the twist at the end.
