he watched silently

parsimonious

 

as she listened to the baker

her facial expression indicated that she thought the price to high

(eyes penetrating, bottom lip out)

it’s just a loaf of bread he thought, a bleeding loaf of bread

with some wine and cheese, maybe fruit

but no, she had to haggle…parsimonious to the end

he left
