FLASH FICTION FOR THE PURPOSEFUL PRACTITIONER- 2017
NEW YEARS PARTY
“Marsha, your table looks so nice! I told Alex you were having a wine and cheese party on New Years Eve in his honor even though he isn’t here,” Emma said sadly.
“Emma, maybe we can get Alex on skype tonight!”
“That would be great! I miss him so much and worry about him all the time. I’m so afraid of him getting killed, or being notified that he is missing in action,” she said tearfully.
“Don’t think about that, Emma. Everything will be fine! “
“Thank you Marsh, for such a lovely party.”
“It’s just getting started Emma! We are about to celebrate bringing in a new year and Robert just told me he has Alex on skype!”
Emma screamed in delight and nearly stumbled running to the computer.
It was almost midnight and Alex told Emma he wanted to make sure he said “Happy New Year” to her, but before he said anything else the computer screen went blank.
All Emma could hear was clapping and everyone screaming “Happy New Year.”
She turned around slowly and saw Alex with with his arms open for her.
“Happy New Year darling, I’m home!”
