Another Writing Exercise

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!”
