Flash Fiction: Figures

The calculations were enough to make him cringe. His ex-wife had taken almost a third of his inheritance in the divorce cutting his lavish lifestyle to nothing. His accountant had shown him the figures but he had to go through them himself to believe it. He had never imagined that she would betray him. The audit was going to be a nightmare.

Why is he being audited? How did he not notice a third of his inheritance going missing until the accountant pointed it out?

The word is figures and this post comes in at 62 of the 75 word limit set by the M3 blog for “Boys and Their Toys” which is the theme of the next flash in the pan book.
