The cardiologist told her to return later.
“A condition of the heart…” was all he had said.
Her heart was in her mouth when she pushed open the cabinet door.

Some of you may remember that a while back I used to publish 50-word stories. Here is a selection of some of my best. I also gathered them in a book – grab it on Amazon.uk or Amazon.us.
