Here’s what the YeahWrite Editors had to say about this piece –
There were several standout micro entries this month, and it made choosing one really tough. Everyone who made it onto the voting grid should feel proud of themselves. This month in just 45 words, Hema told a complete story of an unlikely superhero. The detail of having him eat microwaved fish cemented just how much of an antihero he is (there’s a special place in hell reserved for people who microwave fish at the office). The reader is left uncertain whether he’s really been unmasked, or whether he’s so unlikely that his co-workers will second guess themselves.
“Wait, Phil saved a kid from coming under a bus?” Liza whispers.

“Wow! Who knew!” Liza glances in my direction.
I scoot deeper into my cube and take a bite of microwaved fish.
