Complications – Part 4

Part 4

Panting, blisters on both feet, I race down the street with Donna not far behind me. Minutes later her sister, Jennifer, joins into the fray. Both women are hot on my tail and they’re slowly gaining on me.

Gulping for air, exhausted, I feel myself slowing down. I can’t keep this up for much longer. I know now I should have used that gym membership with my wife!

Bastard we’re going to kill you!” Reminder to self, if I live – NEVER get involved with sisters!

About Tessa

My name is Tessa Dean and I am an author and blogger. My writing styles vary and I love writing using prompts. I am also writing my first book, a Memoir entitled "Government Property - A Memoir of a Military Wife".  This is being published on the blog rather than the traditional way. I am putting up chapters as I go along. I keep my blog filled with useful content, stories, and poems. Plenty to keep you busy. I have also been interviewed by blogs and had other posts published on many different blogs. I also wrote a series of articles on Bipolar Disorder for IBPF (International Bipolar Foundation). I am in my 60’s and disabled which allows me plenty of time to write to my heart’s content. I live in southern New Jersey and have 3 children and 5 grandchildren. My oldest grandchild is a Sargent in the United States Marine Corps.
