Saturday Centus #21
I am linking to Jenny Matlock's Saturday Centus. It is a themed writing meme. You can use UP to 100 words (not including the prompt) to tell your story. You cannot use pictures to illustrate your story. It can be fact or fiction.
This week's prompt is in bold: He never dreamed when he blew out the candles on his cake...
An Amusing Antidote
His eyes darted around the room. “Twenty years he thought, twenty long and miserable years. Day after day I suffered their glib comments, their demands, and these stupid little office celebrations. Well, they aren’t fooling me ever again. He who laughs last laughs the longest.” His mind raced to his desk drawer. His salvation was there, waiting in silence for him. He never dreamed when he blew out the candles on his cake that it would be so easy. He smiled…“Oh you can have your cake and eat it too!” quietly amusing himself.
