It’s been two months away from the Friday Fic, and it appears I now have to sign up for something… oh, it’s just a constructive crit subgroup. …It’s hard enough reading as it is, with my broekn brain… Well, on with the micro-story. Enjoy. 🙂

It was incredible. One mistake, and I wouldn’t know till Tuesday whether I was still employed.
Behind the wheel, I turned the key. Nothing. In the parking lot, thankfully.
One jump-start later, I was good… until the SUV, out of nowhere. Then my car failed again.
“You’ve got to be kidding me.”
I popped the hood. Only my right hand was good, so off went the engagement ring… and into the grate.
It was no use.
I told Alex, and he went crazy, ranting about how women ‘can’t be trusted,’ ‘shouldn’t have jobs’…
…I’m so grateful for that day.
