My piece is inspired by the photo above and the news of the day...


Geoffrey awoke to the prospect of another tough day at the office. He knew that no matter how hard he worked, how many hours he logged, the bank would be coming for their home. "How did this happen? How can we keep our home? I can't bear another dreadful trip to the mailbox, it's coming."
