Stephanie over at ‘BeKindRewrite‘ is once again hosting ‘Voice Week’ – “Voice Week is an experimental writing challenge to help us stretch our versatility in voice and tone. Each Voice Week participant writes five versions of the same story – from five different points of view. Then, October 1 through 5, we post, compare, sharpen, and grow.”
Here is my 100 word story for Day 3 and my third voice.

I’m a nobody as far as they’re concerned. Even though I’ve been Jimmy’s, sorry Mr. Jones’, PA for the last five years, I bet half of them don’t even know my name. The thing is, it should be me sitting by the side of him, holding his hand. It was me that he loved, not that silly, money grabbing, bitch of a wife.
