Prompt for December 29, 2015

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

“Mr. Simonson, let me first offer my condolences on the loss of your wife. Julia was an excellent doctor, wonderful humanitarian and it was my distinct pleasure to know her these last few years as part of the Children First charity that she helped create. No one expected her to be hit by a drunk driver after the banquet last month and the world is dimmer as a result of her light going out. Second, you and I both know that the drunk driver who hit your wife did not just ‘happen’ to get drunk last week and drive off the cliff. You have some very unique skills, Mr. Simonson, skills that my organization happens to need at this present time.”

Post a link to the story in the comments.
