Evelyn Aben 4/6/89

Charli Mills charged us with creating 99-word flash fiction using SWIFT PASSAGE as the prompt. I chose to share the events leading to the swift passing of my mother-in-law, Evelyn. Choose to be a part of the writing fun by hanging out at the: Carrot Ranch

From the time they told us she had cancer, five of them all in advanced stages, until she died was one week. Of course, we had no idea it would happen that quick. I remember walking in and quitting my job because I knew I would move her in with my husband and me so I could care for her until the end of her days. Who knew I would be back to work in less than a fortnight.

But you know, she said that wanted it that way. No drawn-out drama. Absolutely no heroics. Death on her terms.
