TLT: The Game

The Game

They laugh as they play their game, ruthless ambition hidden behind genial smiles as they move counters with calculated precision. Bank balances keep score: vast accumulated wealth the desired pinnacle. On the city streets below the people scurry through their daily lives, unwitting pieces in a cutthroat contest.

This post is for Sonya’s Three Line Tales challenge.

    • Thanks, Sonya. 🙂 I was inspired to write this as soon as I saw the prompt, though I didn’t have the time to finish it until yesterday! Work has this annoying habit of eating into my writing time…
