“My new jacket!” Gwen wailed as the sleeve stared to smoke, acidic secretions burning through the leather.


“You see?” Jack said. “That perfectly illustrates what I’ve been telling you all along. Just because something appears harmless, that doesn’t mean it is. It could have some nasty surprises up its sleeve, like spitting acid when it feels threatened. You’d better get that jacket off before the acid eats right the way through to your skin.”


“But I only just got it!”


“And the moral of this tale is, don’t wear new clothes to work and expect them not to get ruined.”



The End

Oh poor Gwen.

Great drabble
Hopefully she'll learn.

Thank you!

A harsh lesson but a valuable one.

Now if she only learns from it...

Thank you!
