Prompt this week: …all seven were just arguing amongst themselves… + 100 words
Where There’s a Will
As Nurse Nancy dashed in, all seven were just arguing amongst themselves.
“We sell the house first.”
“I don’t agree!”
“Let’s auction everything—”
“You buzzed?” She scanned the silent bed.
Harry frowned; his siblings shook their heads. A thin hand rose, then flopped like a beached trout on the crisp sheets. Nurse Nancy rushed forward; the seven trailed behind.
“Mrs. Mitchell—Annie. What can I get you?”
“Water, please? And a bedpan?”
Harry froze, paled.
“Your mother needs privacy.” Hands gesturing, she shooed them out.
“I thought she was dead—”
“You were wrong. Call my lawyer.” The voice intensified. “I’m changing my will.”
