The Age Difference

"I wish you were going with me," Michelle sighed, looking at Connie as she lay on the sofa with her injured leg elevated on a couple of cushions. "Even if I weren't laid up here with a bad leg, I wouldn't go with you," she told her. Michelle's eyes widened in surprise.  "Why not?" "You're …
