Legal Obligations

Daily Prompt:  Millions


“Did you get the mail?”

“Here, just a bunch of junk.”

“Look! This isn’t junk! Oh my gosh, we’ve been waiting for their answer!”

“Hurry it up already. Well?”

“You got it!! You’re accepted!!”

John felt suddenly overwhelmed. So used to rejection, he felt like he had been trying for a million years. Now, finally, his acceptance was affirmation of all that effort.

“We should definitely celebrate! How about next week, a little get-away?” Ava’s smile revealed more than one intention.

“Yeah…ok,” John sifted intently through remaining mail.

“Any ideas?”

Ripping open the light blue envelope, John replied, “Jury Duty.”
