Five Sentence Fiction Friday - Clutch

Welcome to Friday and this week's edition of Five Sentence Fiction. This week's prompt is clutch. If you'd like to learn more about Five Sentence Fiction, or give it a try yourself, just visit Lillie McFerrin Writes. Enjoy!

"Darling, could you pass me my clutch?"
Dutifully, he reached over and grabbed the small, purple purse from the end table and handed it to her, crying out, "Jesus, what do you have in there? A brick?"
"The universe, of course," she smiled. 
He didn't know she was serious, he'd never bothered to look inside. If he had he would have seen just that, and probably collapsed on the spot. 

Voila! I hope you enjoyed this little tale. If you did, then I suggest you follow this blog so you never have to miss another.
