Third Time Lucky
That bill had come in last week. The electricity looked in doubt after Felix was laid off when the company closed down. His mother was severely disabled. His father had went ‘in search of himself’ when Felix was four. It was down to him to provide and give his mother the comfortable life she ensured he had.
He wasn’t getting anywhere. Maybe it would be third time lucky. He put the bill to the back of his mind (as far back), checked that his teeth were white in a shop window and went in the direction of his next interview.
