Out of a dead end

His abandonment of her
was gradual – “carefully
administered” as he put it
to himself. Oh wasn’t he
a master of calm precision.

– James Steerforth ( © 2010 )

Written with gradual precise abandon for 3WW.

Sorry folks, can’t seem to derail from the somber rut.

    “Carefully administered.” great line. Don’t worry about somber rut. Friends say it’s where I go to write the good stuff.

    Wow. This is brilliant – and rather eery. I feel awful for her and quite angry at him.
