The Mist

Chief Day, Ralph, and Gretchen walked into the kitchen. Nancy and Susan stopped talking. Nancy looked at the Chief and said, “I am so sorry. My intention was not to kill your dog with my vehicle.

“I know, Nancy. You were after a story.” Said the Chief.

Gretchen, Chief Day, and Ralph sat down at the kitchen table with Nancy and Susan. Ralph spoke, “Someone hacked into Susan’s Instagram account. They are responsible for the bad press.”

“I owe you an apology, Nancy.” Said, Chief Day.

“Apology accepted.” Said, Nancy.

“I’ve been fired.” Said, Nancy.

Chief Day had a large smile on his face after everyone shared their concerns for her. “We have a job for you. Right Officer Shape?”

“Yes! Yes, Sir!” Stated, Officer Shape.

Nancy zeroed her eye contact with the Chiefs. “What kind of job?” She asked.

“One that is right up your alley. You are our new Editor in Chief, ‘The Mist.’

“We don’t have a local paper.” Said, Nancy.

“We do now.” Said, Chief Day.
