A Short Short Story

In the midst of the story the protagonist took a break. Heroics have to wait awhile.

The long line in the local electric office was growing steadily. The bill was long overdue. Today was the last call. It was not the same as in the story. Life was harsh. And this was a particularly hot summer. He shivered thinking of the fury unleashing if the fan stops moving tonight. Heroics can wait he thought again. Let the villains be. He’ll come back later to slay them. It’s his story after all.
