Dodge the Draft (Jane Doe, Six Sentence Stories)

She should not have to be doing this.

It’s ridiculous, her attorney asking for a written statement about the money transferred from Richard’s account.They have computers and smart phones and tablets and WiFi in hospitals, too. He would have given her the money if he’d known he wasn’t going to recover. He’d have married her if he’d lived, and who inherited wouldn’t even be an issue now, salt in the wound of her grief and her shattered heart.

Just finish the draft, Becca tells herself, a good draft, and then you can have some wine.

This is a vignette from The Life and Times of Jane Doe, for the Six Sentence Stories blog hop hosted by uncharted. This week’s cue was “draft.”

Fun Sixes from other writers can be found here.

  1. How often this must happen when unmarried couples lose their partner. It sounds as though they were both signatories to his bank account which was only in his name (or used his bankcard). It is of course illegal to take money out of the account after his death even though the day before it was OK!
