BB 4.5:  a new Bimblespottin story

Here it is! My fifth story in the Bimblespottin saga. Or, well, more of a 4.5 as its a character introduction for the wonderful Adeline.

When I started to write this tale, it wasn’t really meant to be a Bimblespottin tale, but rather a Katherine Mansfield-esque tale of a young woman who can’t be bothered to maintain her decorum around the dinner table.

And thank you to the Somerset Writers for sharing another one of my stories!

They post some great literature on their blog, so I really encourage you to check them out. Or perhaps contact them, if you would like to see if they could showcase some of your own work?

But enough of that, it was a topic for tomorrows argument. Right now she was sat alongside her mother, feeling the insatiable lust and temptation to purposely choose to use her olive spoon, even though she were about to indulge in some ripened summer fruits.

She tentatively moved her hand, before a brief slap led…
