My Life - Original Fiction

Title: My Life
Genre: Original work
Rating: PG-13
Word count: 568

Not a happy, feel good story. Welcome to my (scary) world.

I’m often asked what I want to be remembered for. It’s a bit of a quandary, you know. There are the usual things, like making a contribution to society, helping out, charity, one’s children and the like.

Some folks have more lofty goals – they want to cure cancer, or wipeout some other disease, but not me.

Mostly, no one pays any attention to me. I’m invisible or might as well be. Occasionally a child will stop and take notice, but I usually send them on their way, promising that we will meet at a later date. It’s a lie, but what the heck. At their age, it’s easy to lie to them.

So, I float through life. I go to my job and punch keys into a machine. I make copies, I get coffee, I do whatever my lord and master demands of me. The one thing that gets me through the day is knowing that at the end for it, I will be able to go home and into the arms of my loving family.
