The Story

Prompt: Write about how you felt when you discovered you were lied to.



"Your story is on page 35," he said as he handed me the compilation book.

"What?" I asked in utter surprise.

"You didn't know? It's been on the list for months - the editor loved it, it was the first one he approved."

"Thanks," I took the book and flipped it open. Sure enough, it was there - page 35.

I distinctly remembered Marjorie telling me my story did not make it. I was going to kill her the next time I saw her.
