Story Eight

The eighth story in my short story collection, Girlfriending, is a flash (498 word) piece called “Reflection.” Eric, a minimum wage busboy who barely makes ends meet, spots money at the feet of a beautiful girl on a subway car. The money must be hers. He can’t see the denomination, but even ten dollars would make his life easier. Conflict and resolution drives a short story. Which off-ramp will Eric take?
