Paying Attention, a story of Fae Apoc for Thimbleful Thursday

He’d never noticed her.

She’d changed her hair color and gotten a haircut. She’d gotten not just one but three promotions at work, one of them directly over him.

He still didn’t notice her.

She saved his life in the middle of the Fae Attack, and he brushed himself off and muttered cursory thanks while eyeing the blonde from IT. She saved his life again when the hell-hounds came running through – and the blonde’s life; no reason to let her die.

He still didn’t notice her.

So she set his world on fire, stepped out into the street and burned it down around his ears, leaving only him alive.


To today’s Thimbleful Thursday prompt, “Set the world on fire,” 110 words.

  1. Being seen “noticing” one’s co-worker, and even more so one’s boss, is often a bad plan even when she’s not an obsessive sociopath… I wish him luck, but I don’t think that’s going to be nearly enough.
