“Allan, I know what the judge ordered, but I’m telling you it’s not enough.”
Allan’s snort makes her hair stand up; even through the phone, Torry can see his smirk. “What can you need that four thousand a month alimony can’t cover?”
“The Beemer insurance…I don’t have enough for my spa membership, and my Visa is overdue…”
Allan’s laugh now sounds…can it be delighted? “Maybe you should have thought of that before you decided our marriage wasn’t worth anything, and figure out how to live on what you’re given.”
