A love behind the screen


by Maria Jose Garcia

My husband walked into the room and looked at me.

'Again? Don't you think you're a bit too old for this?' he asked. His eyes twinkled and his lips curved upwards.

'Don't laugh or I'll kill you.'

I turned on the telly. Friends was about to start.

I sat on the sofa wearing my best party dress. I wanted Joey to fall in love with me. What's wrong with that? A girl can dream.


Event: write a 75-word story including the words 'don't laugh'.

Joey is one of the main characters of the well know TV series Friends.
