The Black Coat

"Are you actually listening to me?" Clare was furious as Ben continued to flick through the TV channels with his feet on the table.

"I try not to when you moan all the time!"

"I only asked you to please take your feet off my mother's table."

"Ben, do you love me, or did you marry me for my money?"

"Thank you, I was surprised when your sister asked me but…" she turned as the door slammed behind her. "Sod!"

"Ann, don't you think the waves are a bit ferocious looking?"

"We'll be far below them in a while. Climb aboard and zip up!"
