– a 55 word story

It was a game they played. She teased, he pretended to be angry, then they laughed together.

“What’s the matter??” his mother asked, seeing his mock-angry face. “That woman not giving you peace, son?”

She waited expectantly for his denial, followed by laughter, in vain.

Apparently the game had turned real, for his mother’s benefit.
