He doesn't like what he has become. Caroline, his wife has shown a talent for management in the charity sector. John is unhappy that the job seems to have taken his wife away but when he sees someone else pawing her at a presentation, he realises that it isn't just the job that has claimed her. In a state of emotional turmoil, he crashes his car and is left paralysed. He tells Caroline that he knows and that he is not coming home.

When he is presenting a paper on control systems, in London, he is ambushed by Caroline. She pretends that she wants his approval to take a job close to where he lived.

Kenneth George was born in Ashford Common Middlesex, more years ago than he cares to remember. He was educated at the local secondary modern school where an English teacher told him to "Never take up any job that involved writing." He first started writing in the 1980s during the Microcomputer boom. When the publication folded he put away his pen but got it out again once he retired. He has contributed to a few online story sites and two of his stories were cherry-picked by ABCtales.com. In 2016 his story Two Widows won the Shaftesbury Story Slam. He has three sons, two grandsons and one granddaughter. He currently lives in Dorset, England.
