"And the driving licence?" she asked as I finished my anecdote about the four-year-old. I put down my fork onto the smooth polished concrete top of the table and took a deep breath.
"Ah, right, yes. I´m afraid that´s a problem. I do have a full UK driving licence and it´s clean, but the actual card was stolen last month when I lost my purse. I´ve ordered a new one but they wanted an updated photo and it´s taking an age to come through. But I promise you, I can drive."
That last part was true after all.
The main character might be a run-of-the-mill plain Jane or a complete psychopath. This little snippet gives me more of a psychopath vibe, though.
Btw, I´m really enjoying this book so far.
Prompt: Read a book that has been published in 2019.
