Luck


After a hiatus that would have made even The Eagles blush, a return to Velvet Verbosity's 100 Word Challenge.

This week's word - LUCKY

Bad luck, he thought, had absolutely nothing to do with it. He knew they meant well, but every time a friend offered that meaningless phrase over a drink at the bar it served only to remind him how small a part luck had played in everything. His fall from grace had been spectacular, but he knew well that he had been its architect. Sometimes he wondered if perhaps in some perverted way he’d wanted it to happen. But he knew for sure it wasn’t bad luck that had got him here. If anything, he was lucky still to be alive.
