The Other Woman

My answer to this week's WordCatalyst writing prompt


Ah listen to them ‘lowly actress’ indeed! How dare he refer to me in such a manner, and she, she is a blubbering fool when it comes to him – ‘Oh fatha, we are simply acquaintances' - as if our love is nothing more than that of tittering schoolgirls at tea…well, I shall show them no matter how many times the church bells chime or distant seas I must sail…oh listen to her wail against his tirade, I shall not tolerate this, my timid treasure my love my darling Lizzie…we shall be together or my name isn’t Bridget Sullivan!

Aha! Sounds like you addressed the other woman's woman! Unique slant!

P.S. by the way... knowing what I now realize, that changes my initial reaction of "oh, how cool and clever" to "Oh how cool and clever... and CReEPY!!"
