Kyle smiled. ‘You’ve done it!’

‘Are you kidding me?’ Maeve asked, clutching her hands to her chest. ‘I’ve got the job!’

‘No, not …’

‘I haven’t got the job?’


‘What do you mean, no?’ Maeve let her hands collapse to her sides. ‘Have I got it or not?’


‘Then why did you say I had, when I hadn’t?’

‘I said, ‘you’ve done it’. Meaning you’re through to the next round. Second set of interviews.’

‘Why didn’t you just say that?’

‘I was congratulating you!’

‘You made a positive into an anti-climax.’

‘I think you’ll find that was you.’

A drabble is a story of exactly 100 words.
