Backpacking Blues by Kelvin M. Knight
The balcony vibrated under her wrists as he slammed their apartment door. He didn’t tell her where he was going and she didn’t care; this backpacking holiday had turned into a nightmare.
It was meant to be their getaway from the pressures of work. Work that was devouring his mind, body and soul. She should laugh at the irony. She slapped the iron balcony instead. Listening to it ringing made her gnash her teeth.
Now she was at it!
Deep breaths, the deepest of breaths. This city was magical. This rainbow nation. Pots of gold everywhere. She snorted. Petrol fumes from the revving motorcycles below slapped her nostrils. Music blared. The singsong screams of the homeless bit her ears. And that sweet yet sour taste of the seaside.
He stood behind her, head bowed, his top button undone, his dog collar limp in his fingers.
