When Hope Was Lost

by Mairead Devereux

Flash Fiction“I’m not gonna do it!”

“Please, Hope—”

“Not a chance, Mom!”

“We need rent.”

“Tell me you didn’t—”

“Went drinkin’. Had to pay my friends back—”

“How much this time?”

“Three hundred or we’re on the street by morning.”


“‘It’s just a blow job.”

“Are you serious?”

“Close your eyes, open your mouth ‘n’ suck. That’s all you gotta do. I’m beggin’, baby. We’re gonna be homeless and I’m so sick—”

“Maybe you shoulda thought about that before you drank my paycheck away!”

“Stop! Years I’ve lived in this shithole trying to keep you alive, watching you drink, drug ‘n’ gamble my hard-earned money away. I can’t do it anymore.”

“The john’s waiting outside. He’s not a bad guy. Says his wife’s disabled. Please, Hope. It’ll be over fast.”

“How’d I let you fuck up my entire life?”


“How’d I let you break me?”

“Don’t cry—”

“I do this, I’m finished with you, understand?”

“You can’t leave. What’ll happen to me?”

“Not my problem. You send him in, I’m gone.”


“You decide.”

“Promise you’ll gimme the money first?”

“Do me a fuckin’ favour and get out. I got cock I gotta suck…”
