Prompt for October 9, 2015

Complete the short story/flash fiction, that has the following first paragraph:

He was late. He was late. He grabbed the manuscript from his desk and ran down the stairs to the front door, vaulting over the toys scattered throughout the house. As he passed by the table in the foyer he grabbed the manila envelope that lay there and started stuffing the manuscript inside. He reached for the door, but missed the handle and ended up crashing into the solid wooden door. Momentarily stunned he didn’t notice the last page of the manuscript fall to the floor. He ripped open the door and ran outside to get to the mailbox before the postman.

Post a link to the story in the comments.
