Drabble: Unpleasant


“Well, the Lord’s reasons can’t be fathomed by the likes of us. But she’s with him, now.”

I raise an eyebrow. “What?”

She looks uncomfortable. I try to remember whether I even know lady, as familiar as she’s acting. “Well, you know. Everything happens for a reason.”

“So the accident was all part of your god’s master plan. Isn’t he supposed to be omnipotent? Seems like he could think up a way to get whatever business he needs done without killing a four-year old girl.”


Actually, I said “Yeah, I guess.” But I thought the rest. Really hard.
