Flash Fiction Friday

Mrs. Smith

Mrs. Smith never said a bad word to or about anyone. EVER. It amazed me how she could say nothing. I was more the ‘gum ball’ type. MY thoughts rolled off my tongue before they were fully formed in my mind. (But that’s another story for another time.)
I asked her once why she never had a response to what I thought were some very harsh and unkind words said to her. She just smiled and with a twinkle in her eye said, “Oh, don’t you worry. I have letters I’m leaving to be delivered after I’m gone!”

For weeks after she died I was quite nervous to go to my mailbox…… as far as I know no one got a letter, at least not the ones I thought deserved them.

Yin/Yang

My back is aching from hunching over the table...my hand is throbbing from all the cutting...but it still makes me smile when I see the pile grow!

Flash Fiction Friday

Validation 

She was told to report to the 35th floor. When she arrived she was shown into a large corner office with floor to ceiling windows that highlighted the panoramic view of the city skyline. Several men were milling around the desk as she entered. The air seemed to crackle with anticipation. 
For as long as she could remember her daydreams had been this exact moment.
She had to admit it was appealing, she found herself tempted.
When she left the building, with her portfolio securely tucked under her arm, she knew she wasn’t going to take the position.
It wasn’t the job she was after.
It was the OFFER.

Validation.
