July 16, 2020, prompt: In 99 words (no more, no less), write a story that expresses the phrase, “scream inside your heart.”
This is part of the 99 word challenge from Carrot Ranch.
Hear the manager screaming before you ever get into his office, “production is way down this week” or “why is my department not showing a profit” these concerns all seem to blend and repeat.
Down the hall my office is filled with people trying to tell me why we have taken a hard hit in the wallet and how thing should improve. I want to slam my fist on the desk and scream until they hear my plan, but I can only scream in my heart. I am Black and I am a woman, the rules change for me.
