Buck

The video footage was grainy, but Taylor recognized them easily. 

That was definitely a male, and a female, collecting her mail. She furrowed her brows, trying to make sense of it all.

She had known something was up. She hadn’t received any mail for weeks now. Which was unusual. I mean, there were always bills! she thought.

So her friend Jess had suggested she set up a trail camera. It was easy enough.

The first bit of footage she’d reviewed, had captured a wayward moose. That in itself was an interesting theory. She’d imagined it, carrying her post away and reading it in the comfort of, well, wherever it was mooses (or was it meese?) live.

But this. This was something else altogether. She strained her eyes, confirming the identifying features she knew so well.

The moussed hair was a dead giveaway. Nathan was never one to leave his vanity behind. What Taylor couldn’t understand was why his new girlfriend was part of it. She didn’t even know her!

Or at least, that’s what she thought.

The footage continued and the girlfriend turned around. Giving Taylor no doubt, as to who it was.

Jess wiggled her fingers and gave the camera a cheeky smile.

Taylor was furious! Jess had mentioned she had started a new business on eBay. She’d just never clarified what. Taylor looked at the packaging of the trail camera, and the final pieces fell into place.

Seems eBayer cash4jess81, would do anything to make a buck!

  1. Ohh… I hope Taylor doesn’t have to pay ransom to get her ‘mail’ back.
    Guess Taylor could do without the other ‘male!’

    See once you start seeing the connections to prompts… you can get ‘carried away’. 😉
