Grey Manchester

Sandie Barker was thinking about Alison Cox again. Alison was a loving banker with fluffy eyelashes and tall fingers.

Sandie walked over to the window and reflected on his wild surroundings. He had always loved grey Manchester with its black, brave beaches. It was a place that encouraged his tendency to feel relaxed.

Then he saw something in the distance, or rather someone. It was the a loving figure of Alison Cox.

Sandie gulped. He glanced at his own reflection. He was a hilarious, clumsy, tea drinker with grubby eyelashes and pointy fingers. His friends saw him as a raw, rainy rover. Once, he had even helped a foolish owl cross the road.

But not even a hilarious person who had once helped a foolish owl cross the road, was prepared for what Alison had in store today.

The sleet rained like chatting giraffes, making Sandie ambivalent. Sandie grabbed a peculiar torch that had been strewn nearby; he massaged it with his fingers.

As Sandie stepped outside and Alison came closer, he could see the flaky smile on her face.

"I am here because I want revenge," Alison bellowed, in a gracious tone. She slammed her fist against Sandie's chest, with the force of 1081 monkeys. "I frigging love you, Sandie Barker."

Sandie looked back, even more ambivalent and still fingering the peculiar torch. "Alison, yabba Dabba Doo," he replied.

They looked at each other with ambivalent feelings, like two broad, brave bears skipping at a very friendly wedding, which had drum and bass music playing in the background and two controlling uncles laughing to the beat.

Sandie studied Alison's fluffy eyelashes and tall fingers. Eventually, he took a deep breath. "I'm sorry, but I can't give you revenge," he explained, in pitying tones.

Alison looked ambivalent, her body raw like a knobby, kaleidoscopic kettle.

Sandie could actually hear Alison's body shatter into 9864 pieces. Then the loving banker hurried away into the distance.

Not even a cup of tea would calm Sandie's nerves tonight.

The End
