Five sentence fiction: Memories
Gloria sat in her room thinking about her life, she was so ambitious, one rejection completely killed her confidence, she is scared to apply anywhere else, her Mom tried to convince her, it’s not the end of the world, there are other places you can apply, after all you are qualified to teach.
She remembered clearly her Prof told her she made the wrong choice she should have gone for nursing, there are tons of job in that field.
It’s too late, she spent so many years studying, she cannot change now, all her friends have good jobs she’s the only one who is unsuccessful, she scoured the pages of the newspaper for teaching positions, she saw one it was a temporary position to substitute for a teacher who was going on maternity leave.
She applied immediately, she was told it was only for a year, will she be interested, it was the best thing she heard in such a long time, yes she said, “I am interested!”
That day she went home, hugged her Mom and Dad, told them about her job, she was so happy, tears rolled down her cheeks, “Thank you God” she said!
