A Rainbow Life
A 2,000 word story
My phone rang just as my youngest child managed to splatter my blouse with blackcurrant yoghurt. I dabbed at the stain as I checked to see who was calling. It was Ailsa. I should have guessed really as, out of all the people I know, Ailsa’s the one who wouldn’t understand what it was like getting two small kids ready for school. Ailsa doesn’t do families. Ailsa does elegant, calm, quiet.
