#atozchallenge, X is for Xarelto…

pill-316747_1280

Xavier was infernally weary of his mother.  She held the family purse strings closely.  He was still driving his 2015 Audi R8 Spyder and she thought it was fine.  She wanted him to take fewer vacations.  A 39-year-old should stop mountain climbing and start giving her grandchildren.

He needed the old bat off the Board of Directors so he could take control.  He’d tried to get her to step down, but she refused.  It was pure luck that she began taking a new medication, Xarelto.*  He would try surreptitiously doubling her dose and perhaps she would fall and bleed out.  Accidentally.

###

My theme this year is 100 word fiction (So, no, don’t count this line!)  *Xarelto is a newer blood thinner for which there is not currently an antidote.  I don’t really know if you’d die of internal bleeding from a fall if your dose was doubled.

  6. I love how you’re able to casually bring the day’s letter into other parts of your story. Your main character is Xavier? Of course it is!
