Thursday's 3 Word Wednesday

The prompt words over at Three Word Wednesday are girlfriend, imagined and slight.
Yes, my Nyquil-addled brain had a wee bit of trouble with the whole 3WW thing. I did manage to combine it with a Fiction in 58, a story of 58 words.

Peacekeeper
“Love is just a reflection in a mirror.”
His girlfriend liked to say this whenever she felt a slight, imagined or otherwise. It was always accompanied with a flourish of thick, blond hair, as she ran her fingers across her scalp.
He never quite understood what she meant, never asked. He just gave his stock answer:
“More wine?”
