Here is the next installment of the Pleasantview story, where I will be introducing new characters – Herb and Coral Oldie.
On the surface, Herb and Oldie were the perfect older couple. They loved each other very much, and even made time to do small things like watch television together.
They both had unusual habits. Coral liked to lay outside at night and watch the stars; Herb liked to play Pirates in the bathtub.
But that wasn’t the problem with their marriage. No, the problem was that Herb cheated on Coral – constantly. And with different women.
At first, Coral would pretend she had no idea what was going on. But one day, she snapped. After catching Herb kissing Bella Goth, she slapped the hell out of her to ensure she wouldn’t be coming back.
She didn’t speak to Herb for days, but they soon assumed their old routine. Then she caught him in bed with another woman, and that was the final straw.
Coral vowed that she would give Herb a taste of his own medicine, because she didn’t deserve to be cheated on day in and day out. And with that, she set out to get to know Mortimer Goth, who was a sworn enemy of Herb’s. (but who had flirted with Coral on more than one occasion)…
To be continued!
