You discover a letter on a path that affects you deeply. Today, write about this encounter. And your twist? Be as succinct as possible.

“You’re fired!”, ends the e-mail. My heart stops. I stare at the screen in disbelief. I reread the message. How can my boss fire me by e-mail?. Wait. That’s not my name in the header. It’s Melissa’s. Oh my God! What can I do? Tell her? Tell my boss about the mistake? Pretend nothing happened? I’m terrible at pretending. Above all with Melissa. Poor thing! She is right next to me. In a matter of minutes we’ll have a coffee break. We will have to talk. She will notice something is wrong with me. She will ask. What a nightmare!
