One more bit of fluff from the Java Ink writer’s group. The challenge this time was to write a flash around the premise “Bad news solves all problems.” Not that I accept the premise, mind you, but as an exercise, I went with it. This one didn’t take fifteen minutes. Might have taken fifteen seconds.
First Child: “Mommmm! She took my doll!”
Second Child: “Did not! It’s MY doll!”
Mom: “Girls, just so you know–your father won’t be around anymore. I killed him. He was bugging me.”
Children (in harmony): “Never mind!”
