100 word story: A Sudden Itch

“So are you going to leave the phone ringing all damn night?

“I was just – ”

What?

“Doesn’t matter … Hello?”

Mister Lamb?

“Speaking … ”

This is Pandora from LoveNest Lettings. I see that you and Mona have been at 13 Junction Street for seven years. Congratulations!

“Thank you, Pandora … Is that it?

Well, no sir, your lease is up for Renewal and we need your signatures.”

Who the hell is Pandora?”

“A very sweet girl who thinks it’s a pretty big deal we’re still here.”

The hall mirror beckoned. The helmet was a perfect fit … but the mirror melted, the wall was a weeping waterfall, the town became trees … an unbearable vision, a long-vanished world.

In mourning, I cried all night.
