Classic Payback

by Jennifer Hanning
Originally published by on 11/12/2014

Elizabeth was sleep-deprived but a couple of cups of strong coffee made her feel better.

She ate her bacon and eggs in the garden, watching the sunrise as the last of her next-door neighbours staggered inside, finally calling it a night.

At last, all was quiet – but not for long. Elizabeth orientated her speakers toward her neighbours' bedroom windows and began blasting out a Shostakovich CD. The New York Philharmonic Orchestra did a wonderful job of the angry music, although she found it rather energising.

It was even louder than the heavy metal that had kept her awake all night.
