Cover Story

PHOTO PROMPT © Susan Eames

Everyone gathered, giving me sympathy. Yuck.  I love the anonymity of being an assistant.  Mr. Jameson tut-tutted over my foot and told me he would take it easy on me.  Even Ms. Evans stopped and patted my head like a sick child.  I doubt if anyone believed my story.  Fine.

Later, my other phone vibrated.  Nobody was around so I took it out.  Fingerprint, retina scan and 18-digit passcode later, I read the text message.

“Thanks for making the world safe, once again.”  It was the president.

Mr. Jameson had joked that at least I had some excitement.

I smiled.

      No, no, the world isn’t safe, it is just -safer- since she found the stolen nukes and offed the bad guys. (The bad guys were going to take out Dr. Fauci and Greta Thunberg and everyone,and everything, within 10 km of them…. ;) )
