Jill, At Halloween Time #4

Jill checks a mirror
and straightens out her new bra.
She starts walking back

to the kitchen but
hears a noise in the front room.
She stops, frowns, looks in.

On her computer
a tech chart is flashing and
the speaker’s beeping.

‘Some stock’s changed,’ Jill thinks,
starting in. She stops. ‘The milk,’
Jill thinks. ‘Stocks or milk?’
