Lesser Incarnations: 100 Words

by on February 29, 2020

She slammed down in the chair across him. “You filed a complaint against me. Why?”

“You went on vacation. Your deputy had the duty.”

She shrugged. “Revolution’s great. What’s the problem?”

“Called in sick. Someone else filled in.”

“Who?”

“Monday.”

“It couldn’t have been that bad.”

“It was. How many people usually die during Monday morning conference calls?”

War arched an eyebrow. “You’re upset because you had nothing to do?”

“I found something,” Death growled. “One person missed his alarm and in his hurry got hit by a bus.”

War giggled. “Fine. I won’t go on vacation again. Deal?”

“Deal.”

This was February‘s assignment for Yeah Write’s 20/20 Hindsight project, which was to take one’s January story and rewrite it in 100 words. Hoo boy.
