Tale Weaver – #266 – Backbone – 12th March – Finally


She’d said on more than one occasion that he needed to show a bit of backbone.

Rolling over in submission could only be done so many times. He had to at some stage stand up for himself.

But it was all about keeping the peace.

It was all about protecting the children.

Those were the simple facts and when he did finally act there were choruses of amazement at the brazen nature of his actions.

It was one Tuesday evening when after another round of feeling he had sold his soul once again, a voice inside him said enough was enough.

You can’t do this he was told what about the children?

You can’t do this he was told, what will people say?

But, he replied, I am doing it.

And that was that.

In the face of adversity, he stood up, showed some backbone, acted, and never looked back.

    Always a bit tricky about playing the lamb, sometimes you have to roar like the lion.
