Paperwork

Here is my contribution to the Three Word Wednesday prompt for the week. I hope y'all enjoy it.


Nancy knew that to tamper with the paperwork would result in the imminent demise of the current administration. Still, she couldn’t in good conscience leave things the way they were.


Without intervention, the bureaucratic machine would engulf all in its path, leading to the destruction of values she had always held dear. After one last prayer, Nancy started typing the letter that would end her career, but save her soul.

Somebody could write that about any administration but who has that kind of power?

The choices we have to make! What's good for the soul is usually the hardest one to make. Hope Nancy made the right decision.
