Flash Fiction #169 – Let Them Eat Cake

“Do something,” screeches the woman as the EMT, Julio, kneels over the choking man.

It just hit Julio how he knows the husband and wife; they refused to make his and Allen’s wedding cake on grounds of their religion. How Allen had cried…

“Do your job!” screams the woman.

“Sorry. Saving bigots is against my religion.”

The blood drains from her face; she recognizes him. “You wouldn’t…”

“You’re right, I wouldn’t,” says Julio as he injects the man’s thigh with the epi-pen. “Because I’m not an asshole.”
