8-19-16 Micro Story

Mr. Carruthers stamped the final page with his office’s official seal.
“Okay, we are finished,” he announced.
“I got it? I got the patent?” Ms. Sampson knocked her bonnet askew in her excitement.
“Yes, you do. But if I may, no one will ever buy it. There’s no way anyone will trust a machine to get clothes clean enough.”

Prompt word: patent

(I write these stories from a prompt word in one minute. They are designed to sharpen my storytelling skills. This project will continue for a year. Enjoy!)
