Genre: Fiction
Word Count: 100

Ron opened the door and looked at the rain falling on the parking lot below. It was increasing in both volume and intensity.


“Come back to bed, baby. Can’t you call in sick tonight?”

Sharon’s offer was tempting. A man would have to be a fool to decline her offer and venture out to work a twelve hour shift in weather like this.

Ron was just such a fool.

“They’re counting on me, babe. I can’t let the team down and have someone else take up my slack.”

“Please be careful tonight.”

“You know me.”

“Make that extra careful.”

    Ron can go to work. I’ll stay in bed with Sharon.

      I hear you, Bjorn. “Foolish” is a relative term. Thanks for stopping by and taking the time to comment. Ω
