Last lines: Becca has just been fired, and Irving got the promotion she wanted, so she has a temper tantrum, kicking over his trashcan and pouring the coffee pot over his desk.
“You crazy bitch!” Irving knocked the box out of her hands, “You can’t do that!”
“Don’t call me a bitch, you loser,” Becca slapped at him, catching his arm with her nails.
Irving’s computer crackled and emitted a shower of sparks, one of which sent a wisp of smoke curling up from the pile of trash on the floor.
“You ruined my computer! I’m glad you’re fired! Who’d want to work with a psycho like you?” Irving yelled, face flushed with anger.

“Lily Wasn’t There” is a short story I can’t quite get right. I’m hoping the feedback from WeWriWa will help.
Becca’s life hasn’t gone how she planned. Stuck in an accounting job she despises, she scrapes by with a paycheck that doesn’t buy her half of what she deserves. She wants to find a man before she’s thirty, get married, and never work another day in her life. While at work, she people-watches, and one particular coworker is often the focus of her attention–Lily. Lily is everything Becca hates–buttoned-up, bland, and overly dedicated to her job–or so Becca thinks.
