If Only - Writers Island Prompt #18

This wasn't the first time it had happened.
She was fed up with the amount of times she had said
'If only' to herself,
but as she left the toilet, here she was again,
it was happening all over again
the looks,
the comments,
the pointing,
the laughter,
She tugged at her boyfriends arm.

"Let's just get out of here!"

They rushed for the door, her boyfriend shielding her all the way as they made their way through the crowd and out to the safety of the street.

"Not again?"

She nodded and turned her back,
he dutifully eased the skirt out from her knickers again.

.... "That's one more pub we won't be going back to then!"
