” Things Do Come Back “


I have to tell you a story about a person named , “Trouble”   Also known as Ginger Hoot.

She  earned that name, from people that know her.

Every time she opens her mouth, she always has something nasty,to say, about anyone.

I truly believe……she enjoys…..making people, fight amongst, each other.

 

Ginger,is in her forties, tall and thin,like a french fry. Blue eyes,and flowing long, blonde hair.

She is divorced, after her husband, found her in bed with another man, when he came home early  from work.

 

Little  did, Ginger know, someone,was waiting for her to screw-up again.

 

Her name is Rebecca,to her friends, they call her Becca.

In her late fifties,  petite, green eyes,with brown curly hair, pulled back behind her ears.

She was married once happily, until Ginger,asked her ex., for a ride home.

They both worked at the court house, in Central  County, PA.

 

Afterward,  Becca got suspicious  of her ex .,  Brian.

He was all of a sudden, having meetings for work, one night a week.

On one of these  nights, Becca called out of work,where she worked as a manager,at a deli.

She waited until he left that night, for a meeting………….she followed him.

Becca’s gut feelings,  paid off.

Her ex  pulled  into the parking lot, at a  motel,  next to another car.

This motel is about five miles,from their house in the town of Slur.

Brian got out of his vehicle, when the car door open,next to him.

When he walked over to the car, a woman got out.

They then embraced and kissed .

Becca recognized the woman right away.

The blonde bitch, trouble maker, as she called her.

Becca darted out of her car,that was across the street,from the motel.

She yelled,  “You Slut”.

Both were shocked  to see her.

Once Becca got closer, she gave Ginger, a left-hook in the face.

Of course, Brian stood up for Ginger.

He put his arm around her, so Becca couldn’t hit her again.

That happened five years ago, and Becca said she would get even with the slut.

 

Like a small town, everybody knows your business.

Slur,was no different…….they all loved gossip!

The latest news was about Ginger.

Ginger fell in love, with a new  guy, that moved in town, about two years ago.

They were planning to get married soon.

 

None of this news got back to Becca, which was very unusual.

The people in Slur,thought, she already went through enough….with her divorce.

She didn’t need to hear about the woman who crushed her marriage.

 

Unbeknownst  to Becca, Ginger’s future husband, Tim, who frequently came into the deli where Becca worked.

They became good friends, and talked to each other like they been friends for years.

Tim and Becca, seemed to have a lot in common.

He told her he was seeing someone,but didn’t mention any name.

Tim also told her that he has been divorced,for six years.

Tim,was around her age, average height,muscular built, with black hair, combed in the back, like a D.A.

Did I forget to mention, thick eye-lashes,and sexy green eyes.

 

Tim was coming in more  frequently, when he figured out  her break time.

When she was on her break, he would sit down with her at a table,  they just talked and laughed about everything.

She secretly fell in love with him, because they were so much  alike .

Becca had mentioned to Tim months ago, that she had a birthday coming up in May.

Tim kept that thought in the back of his mind.

 

Ginger and Tim,weren’t getting along, as they were.

Always arguing about smalls things,but Ginger really loved him,and tried to make everything right.

But when they went out together,he always seemed to have his mind somewhere else.

Tim didn’t tell her, that he was having seconds thoughts about their wedding.

He knew that,when he was with Becca, everything seemed right.

She was more down to earth, than Ginger, who would put on an act, like she was better than everyone else.

Tim loved her before,but didn’t see what a selfish person she was.at the time.

He also knew he suddenly fell out of love with her, the moment he met Becca.

Their was something about Becca,he couldn’t explain.

The more he seen her,the more he wanted to be with her.

Tim had to make up his mind soon,because the wedding was right around the corner.

It wasn’t going to be a big wedding, which Ginger wanted, just a small church wedding ,with a few friends  they  invited.

 

A month went by, and Tim finally got the nerve to call the wedding off.

Ginger knew it was coming, she  started, crying and screaming . “Get the hell out of my life”.

Tim never brought up the ending of the relationship to Becca.

He thought it was best, at that time.  Who knows,what’s on Ginger’s mind.

 

Mean while, three months has passed.

 

Ginger kept calling and texting Tim,and following him around.

He had to change his number,and report to the police,he was sick and tired of her following his every move.

May finally came around,…… Tim asked Becca, if  she wanted to  go out to dinner with him for her birthday.

She was stunned, but happy.

“What about the person you are seeing?”

“I’m not seeing anyone,any more.”

Becca was bursting inside with happiness.

“Okay,then the answer is sure, why not.”

Becca was inquisitive, about his relationship

Tim told Becca, that he was suppose to  marry Ginger soon.

“He loved Ginger, but not as much as he loved her.”

Becca couldn’t believe her ears.

“Ginger who?”

“Ginger Hoot, do you know her ?”

Smiling she said, “That’s not important! ”

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Becca thought, now is the time,to give her a taste of her own medicine.
