Response 2: A true story - still hurts

She couldn’t get it out of her head.

Only three hours and she’d be there. A shiver went up her spine. The excitement was too much.
It had been so long. How would it feel? Oh she knew. She hoped anyway. Would it be worth it?
Sod it. You only live once. I deserve it. I don’t do it all the time like a lot of those other women with no consciences.

2.5 hours to go… her tummy turned over. A smirk swept over her face.
The afternoon dragged. But after what seemed an eternity, the clock struck five.
On the tube, her face squashed into sweaty armpits, but for once, she didn’t care. Just get me there!
Home. It was almost too much. She lay in the bath, tingling all over. This. Is. It.

She slipped off her towel, opened the fridge. And…


Who had eaten her galaxy?
