For Friday Fictioneers 100-Word Challenge: 4 March 2016
Nathan worked so hard he hardly had time for his daughter. I’d make it up to her, he promised his wife.
One day, he went to work and found he didn’t have access anymore. Bruce met him at the gate. He was his supervisor.
Bruce led him to a room where he was told he had been terminated. Nathan never felt so unwanted like dead batteries in a jar.
Surprised, little Annie rushed to him when he arrived home early.
“Daddy!” she cried and gave him a big hug. It was then that Nathan realized how much she missed him.
