Everything is Relative (Jane Doe Flash Fiction)

But I thought you moved there for the epic job, your career pinnacle,” Barb said. “How’d you end up homeless?”

“No trick at all,” Jane assures her, switching her phone to her other ear. “The fancy skyscraper, the water view, the little bistros for lunch…those were disguising the Job From Hell. But I’m still epic.”

“I thought your new boss is a royal bitch too.”

“Sure. And the place is a dump, and the pay is a joke, and people won’t even say hi. But…after two years unemployed, anything with a paycheck is epic in my book.”


Every week at the Ranch, Charli Mills hosts the Rough Writers and Friends flash fiction challenge. This week’s prompt: “In 99 words (no more, no less) write about an epic workplace. It can be real or imagined. Go where the prompt leads.”

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