While visiting the old neighborhood, Adrian decided to stop by the store where he used to work as a kid.

“May I help you?”

“Mrs. Robinson, it’s me.”

“Adrian, is that really you?”

“Yes maโ€™am.”

“Oh my, how you have grown,” she exclaimed looking at him from head to foot.

“I just wanted to thank you for giving me a chance in life. I don’t think I’d ever make it in this country without your generosity.”

“You’re much welcome, Adrian. Now, weโ€™ve got unfinished business to take care of.”

Mrs. Robinson then put the ‘Closed’ sign and locked the door.

    Plaridel, the shopkeeper’s name should have been a dead giveaway. What started out as a sentimental story sure took a more prurient turn. Nice twist in more ways than one ๐Ÿ™‚

    At first I thought, she’s locking up to catch up… methinks she’s collecting something more!

    Clever story. Your twist took me completely by surprise and, despite being an unresolved cliff-hanger, it felt perfectly satisfying. Well done!

    You naughty Mrs Robinson, what will the townsfolk say if they find out. Perhaps every eligible youth already does. Nice laugh at the end.
