Flash Fiction #74 – The Secret to Life

I’ve never seen someone as happy as Peter when we drove up to the abandoned cobbler shop with

broken windows:

“Only one person in the world at a time may know the secret to life,

and I was chosen.”

I waited as he went in. 

I’ve never seen anyone as disappointed as Peter when he came back to the car. He stared out his

window as we drove.

I assumed he’d been swindled,

but then he turned to me.

“Once you know the secret to life,

the world loses its magic.”

They found Peter dead a week later.
