Harold had just gotten chewed out by his boss, Mr. Sinister. Working for a selfish billionaire was a nightmare. If not for the money, Harold would have left long ago.
Harold went to the executive lounge. He noticed a new vending machine. Inside it, there were three index cards. The first read Loyalty, Wealth, Misery. The second read Independence, Struggle, Contentment. The third read Everything You Ever Wanted. Harold chose the third option. The vending machine door opened…
An hour later, they found Harold’s body buried under a pile of cars, money, houses, and a letter that said I quit.
Based on the Centina Pentina prompt: Write a story about a vending machine.
