Key (Jane Doe Six Sentence Stories)

Jane feels the cold rush of shock and fear. “But Michelle said I’m doing a good job,” she protests.

Caroline’s thin lips get thinner. “I’m told you were told, and Becca agrees. Please gather your things and leave your key. I’ll pay you through the end of the day.”


Each week, Ivy at Uncharted hosts the Six Sentence Stories flash fiction linkup. This week’s cue was “key.” Fun Sixes from other writers are here.

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

  1. Few words, short sentences that certainly get the point across. Life is not fair – I was going to say sometimes, but I think I mean lots of times. I have a feeling fragile Jane will land on her feet.
