Back With Interest

Her home was going to be auctioned.

It was snowing heavily.

She recollected a similar severe winter night some years ago.
A young soldier had sought refuge.
He had been badly wounded.

She had nursed him with care, using up the duct tape.

They had warmed up to each other.
Those few days they spent together were the happiest days of her life.
Then, he was gone...

A knock at the door interrupted her thoughts.
She was alarmed to find duct tape on the door.

The moment she opened her door, she was greeted by a familiar kiss and embrace.
