Blurb: Ted has just won 15 million quid. Or at least, he would have won 15 million quid if he could find his bloody lotto ticket…
Review: Anyta Sunday is really a master at telling a good story in a very short word count. Originally part of an anthology, this story is now available as a standalone.
This is a short story that begins with Ted seeing his numbers called for the lottery – so, of course, he cannot find the winning ticket. He’s been out to dinner with his best mate Jenson, and this could be the answer to all his problems—if he can find the damn ticket! As Ted retraces his steps, Jenson tries to get his attention to share some big news. Ted doesn’t want to hear it, though, and does his best to cut Jenson off at every turn. He’s very worried that what Jenson wants to share means their relationship will change, and he will get left behind. Turns out Jenson’s news isn’t exactly what he expected. 😉
I am a big fan of this author’s writing style. She manages to write authentic dialog, and she can very succinctly tell a compelling story. Well done again, in nineteen short pages. Recommended for short story lovers, especially.
