You’re getting older

by Alexander LaidLaw · illustrations: Clara Palardy

Mathew had drank several beers with his friend Dave and had smoked some of Dave’s cigarettes. Now it was after midnight and he was biking home to be with his girlfriend Alyson. He was biking without his mittens even though the cold bit his hands. He wanted to air the smell of cigarettes from his fingers. For the same reason he was breathing deeply with his mouth wide open, hoping to refresh his breath. Just like anybody else, Alyson didn’t like to smell cigarettes and beer when she was holding her lover. Mathew wasn’t in a hurry so he was biking slow down the middle of a street, and he turned around when a lady from the sidewalk called him, “Oh you, young man! Will you help me please?”
