Daily Prompt: Excuse

From The Grey House:

Keith closed his eyes. “I was caught up in the moment.”

“Your excuse is that everyone else was doing it?” He shook his head and made a disapproving noise.

“I felt if I didn’t-”

“Save your excuses. I don’t care to hear your lies.” Vincent squatted down, bringing him face to face with his child. “Why did he give you money?”

Keith hung his head again. “To buy women.”

“No, Keith. What did you give him in return?”

Keith sank lower to the ground. His answer was barely a whisper. “The name of your favorite human at The Red Thread.”
