Here's a flash fiction piece under 300 words. I don't have an introduction, just read it and see what you think! Two men, strangers just moments ago, sit side by side in a hospital waiting room. The younger waits for a new life, his first child, to enter this world. The older waits for his gray haired sweetheart, the love of his life, to leave this world. The younger explains how the nurse said they just needed a little more time. The older was told there was no time to waste.
