Flash Fiction – The Jury Trial

I know I am being sued for my lack of quality performance. My architectural plans were approved though. The city stamped the blueprints, so I am assuming I will win in front of the judge. I shouldn’t be punished just because the walls started to fall down.

I’m hoping that my colorful beams masked the cracks that started in the concrete. I never let on that they were there to hold up the walls. Most people think that they are just decorative.   

I can only win my case, if the jury is not made up of my peers. If there is one single architect on the jury, I’m done for. I can lie like the best of them. As long as there is a quick and speedy trial, I have a chance of beating this conviction.
