Excerpt from "Dirty Laundry"
Short story by Veronica
And there he stood. Nothing on but a gray tank top.
"No underwear?" My voice was meek. I couldn't help but notice.
"You took it all." He folded his arms.
I was embarrassed. Embarrassed that he realized I had taken all his underwear. Embarrassed that I had been such an ass. Embarrassed that he was standing there in only a tank top.
He wasn't embarrassed, even as the comforter guy came back in to get the rest of his blankets.
I looked at the laundry basket, still stuffed with my clothes and his underwear. I tried not to look at him. I tried not to stare. I glanced all around us. The sun was starting its descent in the evening sky. I put my hand onto the basket, into the remainder of dirty clothes for something to hand him. Just something he could cover up with.
He wasn't speaking. Or budging. And he certainly wasn't smiling. He was staring. Just staring. At me.
