Doris had news for John but didn’t know how to break it to him. She decided to break the tension. “You know your one off the telly?”

“No, I don’t, Doris!” John exclaimed. “Which one is it?”

Andrea and her brother, Luke, were meeting up at the Red Rose Café near Stephen’s Green in Dublin. They hadn’t spoken in a while. Andrea didn’t know that Luke had won a million euro in the Lotto.

Nobody knew.  Andrea was usually rude and disrespectful to Luke. Growing up, they didn’t get along. Now, Luke had something important to tell Andrea but he couldn’t get her attention, even a second for her to just listen to him.

Luke was trying to explain why he hadn’t spoken to Andrea in a while.

As she rushed in the rain, Patricia wanted to catch the last train home. When she got on to the DART, it was nearly empty which was unusual. It was usually full, especially on a Friday evening.

Patricia noticed that someone was sitting in her favourite spot and she always sat there. She was jealous of all the woman’s bags. She wanted to sit there to see if she could take something.

Patricia was a hard worker and worked all the hours that God sent her. She didn’t have time to go shopping so she took what she could get.
