“The place looked big enough before,” he said. “Don’t see why it needs mirrors in every room now.”
She shook her head and dropped her hands to her hips, hammer still clutched loosly in the right.
“It’s called interior design,” she huffed. “Most people pay for someone’s help with it,”

  1. I liked the light tone. I have been reading a lot of heavy-emotionally laden flash fiction pieces so this was a breath of fresh air. It felt like stepping up and looking through the glass to see a normal couple having a normal moment. No murder, zombies or angry fights. Very nice.

    Nan 🙂
