The Red Angora Dress/The Square Peg (Storycuts)


Formats & editions


Two short stories: Milly is determined to dress to impress; and can anything - or anyone - possibly bring order to Penny's chaotic life?

In 'The Red Angora Dress', Milly just knows her boyfriend, the handsome Andrew, is losing interest in her. So when he invites her to a glamorous party, she resolves to knock him dead with a killer outfit. Having blown half her month's wages on a skintight red angora dress, Milly is dismayed to find that it sheds everywhere - and that it is rather uncomfortably hot. Then she overhears Andrew chatting up the party's hostess, and laughing at her - and her outfit - behind her back. Hurt, heartbroken and humiliated, can anything possibly salvage Milly's dreadful night?

In 'The Square Peg', despite her best intentions, junior secretary Penny is a whirlwind of chaos. She's two hours late back from lunch, mixes up letters, and on one memorable occasion manages to release a rabbit into the boardroom. It's no wonder that the firm's tough new MD, Jake McInnes, has it in for her. He might be the heartthrob of the rest of the typing pool, but Penny is desperate to escape to a new job with a more easygoing boss. But the job application she sends off has some rather unexpected consequences...

Part of the Storycuts series, these two short stories were previously published in the collection Lisa & Co.
