What He’s Doing Now

added to Comes As You Are, flash fiction rock novel

Your first emotion: anger. It sweeps over you, leaving you prostrate.

Was it just a month ago he served his ultimatum? Four weeks later after proclaiming undying love he is standing next to a model who looks like her last meal was a small green salad.

But anger dissipates followed by disbelief, hurt, tears, alcohol.

A ruse, you think. A test.

You dial his number; it goes straight to voice mail. Seven times it does this and then the eighth time a computer voice says that calls are not being accepted from your number.

His ultimatum completes. You’re history.
