Where There’s No Will (Jane Doe Six Sentence Stories)

“So Jane, “Caroline says, handing a file off to Becca, “while it’s on my mind, since you work for an attorney, you should have a will in place. I’m happy to help with that, at a discount. ”

Jane presses her lips together. “I took care of that with our family lawyer just recently,” she says, then forces what she hopes is a gracious smile. Not that I have a family lawyer, or a family left, or anything to leave to anyone anyway. And my last two lawyer bosses did it for free, you cheap hag.

I like trees, dreaming, magic, books, paper, floating, dreaming, rhinos, rocks, stargazing, wine, dragonflies, trains, and silence to hear the world breathe.

  1. If only nasty employers were aware of even half of what their employees were actually thinking behind those forced smiles!! Employees have the power to ruin a business, far better to keep them content! I have never known an attorney who charged his/her employees for assistance with wills and other legal paperwork, that’s usually one of the fringe benefits of the job. I really feel for Jane, I have worked for employers like this!
