I have written absolutely nothing for three weeks, so the Friday Fictioneers' weekly challenge hosted by https://rochellewisofffields.wordpress.com/ is a great way to dip my toe back in the water.
CUTTING THE LAWN
“Get your idle bum off that sofa and cut the grass!”
Terry glared, but he plugged the lawn-mower into the old kitchen socket and soon the sound of the machine filled the afternoon.
Sandra was making tea when the power blew.
Terry stormed into the kitchen and flipped the trip-switch back on. “Where’s the toolbox? I ran over the cable.”
“Unplug the mower before you fix it.”
“I know what I’m doing, woman.”
Sandra stood motionless, holding the teapot and breathing slowly to calm herself.
When she heard the scream she waited several long seconds before she pulled out the plug.
