ENTRY: Flash Fiction July 26-27

Never Tell
by Marcia Lee Laycock


Avery still laughed. She still laughed, but couldn't face Jeff. She’d promised never to tell. But he’d said “I may not make the show.” Two years of work and he might not be there?

But he came.

The instructor took the platform. "I have a humorous anecdote."

She went cold.

"This student had been throwing pots for days, but she had a problem. They were cracking.”

Jeff stiffened.

“Her anxiety showed in the bedroom. Her husband woke to feel a hand on his bottom as she said, "this one's no good, it’s cracked!"

Avery raised his glass to her.
