Here on Six Words, we offer a simple platform to share the short, sharp story of your life, as well as provide daily prompts to share your six-word takes on the topics of our times.

More than half a million short stories have been shared here. Read more about six.

Emotional coward deliberately destroys potential cover.

I wrote the message having heard she had resigned. If in fact she hasn't, or comes back to work here at a future date, then I'm going to have to face her. Emotional coward that I am, at least I penned her that message explaining things and how I felt, but not in a needy, demanding way. The old me would have just let her walk away wondering what she'd done to offend me, so perhaps I'm improving on that score.
