Transferred (A Six Sentence Story)

IMG_5447Holmes stood before The Big Boss uneasily, wondering why he’d been summoned and if his job was on the line.  He knew that his latest assignment wasn’t going so well, maybe because he identified too easily with the client and found it hard to steer him in a different direction.

Holmes personal life had been a series of missteps and now that he was working for The Big Boss he often felt like he wasn’t up to the challenge, but The Big Boss saw things differently.

“Holmes”, he began, “I think it’s time we tried something different, and I’ve got an assignment in mind that will be just right for you. I am transferring you back to Earth, and I want you to help Emily find a new husband that’s just right for her, she’s been alone for a long time now.”

“What, you… you want me to help my ex-wife find a new husband?” Holmes asked, totally dismayed; The Big Boss just nodded and smiled.”

I've been blogging off and on since August of 2006. I adopted the pen name Josie Two Shoes in 2007 as I began a new chapter of my life standing on my own two feet. Now I'm married to the man of my dreams; we live in dusty West Texas with a house full of furkids. I am an Aquarian by birth, and although I am past sixty and slightly frayed around the edges, my fascination with this thing called life continues. Faith, family, and friends are important to me; so are honesty, trust, tolerance, compassion and kindness. I'm pretty up front about most things, so if you want to know something more about me, just ask! :-) You can also reach me by email and find me at my Facebook page.

  1. What a great story. Your photo clued me in as to who the Big Boss might be. I truly think our loved ones on the other side are but a whisper away.
