December 10: Flash Fiction Challenge – Surprise!

Charli’s Carrot Ranch 99-word flash fiction challenge:

December 10, 2020, prompt: In 99 words (no more, no less), write a story about something a character never dreamed would happen. The situation can be fortuitous, funny, or disappointing. Go where the prompt leads!

Sasha sat down at the nearest table. There was no space closer to the front, but she was more than happy with that.

Being the centre of attention was not her thing. In fact, she wouldn’t have even been here at all,  if it wasn’t for her boss, insisting she showed up. Corporate events were the worst kind of evil, and business awards, even more so.

Swirling the champagne in her flute around, she tuned into the speaker’s voice.

“And the award for the most loyal employee goes to…. Sasha Smith!”

Faces turned her way.

She dropped her glass.
