A Momentary Joy

A momentary Joy

(50-word Flash Fiction)

By Lorna Ye

The monthly staff meeting is as boring as usual until John announces that next Friday will be his last day with the company. A surge of happiness flies to her heart and her face. Finally! She chants silently.

“April Fool’s Day!”

The three most hideous words kill her short-lived joy.
