Ruby leant against the table, staring hard at Alverrah who was seated on a chair fidgeting. Two years back, she'd borrowed a pretty good sum of money from Ruby who had finally come to collect it.

'Babe' said Ruby, staring lazily at her. 'I've given you more than enough time to get your shit together and pay back......without interest.' He put so much emphasis on the last two words that she couldn't help scowling at him. Big deal, she thought. 'And stop looking as though someone released one great big fart right under your nose. It won't help, you know.'

Alverrah scowled all the more. 'You don't have to be so rude.'

Ruby looked down at her, face set into a frown and thinking hard. 'You know what' he said after a few moments. 'I'll add you two, I repeat, two more months to get my money and pay up.'

'Or else....' she said bitterly before she could stop herself.

Ruby grinned at her. 'Or else, it's debtor's prison for you.' He then stood erect, grin still in place, gave her a mocking bow, said 'Good day' in a husky voice, then turned to leave.

As soon as she thought he was out of the house, she jumped onto her feet and made as though to kick a cushion lying on the floor close by. She then heard someone clearing their throat. She whipped around only to find Ruby watching her from the doorway, hardly making an effort to hide his amusement.

'Well, well, well. What have we got here? ' he asked, then walked to the cushion that Alverrah had intended to kick and lovingly picked it up. After dusting it, he threw it onto the nearest sofa. 'That's not what you should be kicking, dear.' he said. 'Come and I'll show you something.' He beckoned her to follow him and he led her into her own kitchen, then stopped in front if the stove. He pointed down at it. 'Kick this, love, and not that miserable cushion, else you're you're a big fat coward.' He grinned once more, bowed a little and then walked out of the kitchen, humming a soft tune to himself.

Alverrah was exasperated beyond words. Ruby, of all people had insulted her and she had done nothing about it!! She'd soon get even with him though.
