Terrible Minds Challenge: They Call This Mutha Revenge

Chuck Wendig, King of the Britains, Defeater of the Saxons, Sovereign of All England, has issued a unique challenge this week. The theme is revenge, and we have a scant 100 words to work with. Here's my entry, "Mail Drop"

Marissa sealed the envelope, pressing the flap closed and sealing it with tape. She
addressed it carefully, making sure the address was right.

He had made it clear that her path to the top ran through his office, and through his bed.
She wanted the job too much to have principles, and as he rose through the ranks, she
came along for the ride.

When he said it was over, that he had to concentrate on his family, she said nothing
about the pictures, the letter, the evidence she had gathered.

He didn't want her to know.

Now she'll know.


  1. I knew a Marissa once.
    I could see her doing that.

  2. Interesting. I don't know if this kind of revenge is the best. Surely letters can also assure her continued rise within the company. But I guess she was angry. Affairs of the heart.... I can see that.

  3. I knew a Marissa also.

    She would do that.
