Reaction

This is my contribution for the Three Word Wednesday prompt. Micro fiction piece this week. Hope y'all like it.


In her rare lucid moments, between the alcohol binges and crying jags, Sandra knew she should push her righteous indignation aside and salvage what was left of her marriage. Unfortunately for Mark, who was staring down the barrel of a .45, tonight was not one of those moments.

Yeah, neatly done micro!

Thanks for reading, y'all. Katherine, in this story, like most of my work, he dies. I'm a mean writer...lol.

Kimberly, 3WW is fun!

Well-done microfiction! Poor Mark. I will hope he has a moment of lucidity, too!

That got my attention! Poor, poor Mark

Stunning. You squeeze a huge story into two sentences, and in doing so you give it extra power and meaning.

Oooh!

This one is absolutely superb.

Gripping stuff and absolutely fabulous ending... and second line!

Whew!
