25. Scenes from the Second Seat on the Right

Thursday, September 25th, 10:00am
Madigan and Barb

 

Madigan: (looks out the window) So what makes you think Ken’s fooling around on you?

Barb: He’s just acting really weird lately.

Madigan: (regards Barb) Weird like what?

Barb: I don’t know. It’s just one of those things a wife notices. You wouldn’t understand.

Madigan: What does that mean?

Barb: Well, you know. You and Tom were never really happy.

Madigan: That doesn’t mean I wasn’t a wife to him.

Barb: Come on Maddie. He never even loved you. How can you say you knew him at all and that you’d notice little things that a real wife does when you couldn’t even comprehend that? And anyway, you weren’t even married.

Madigan: (turns to the window) Marriage is just a piece of paper.

Barb: You wouldn’t know though would you? You’ve never been married. Ken loved me enough to put a ring on my finger and tell the whole world that he wanted to spend his life with me. Nobody’s ever done that for you.

Madigan: (looks sharply at Barb) And yet you think he’s fooling around on you!

Barb: (checks her fingernails) Eeh, it’s probably just my imagination.

Madigan: (stares out the window and mumbles) Don’t count on it.

    • Well… I’m actually considering doing this for an entire year… One way or another, don’t expect an ending too soon! Though most of the character’s stories will come to their own conclusions naturally.
      Thanks so much for reading, Alexis! I’m happy you’re enjoying them. 😀
