My fourth drabble from my list of a hundred.

4 – Fake


He had to be a fake. He had to be lying; there was no way he could be telling the truth.

Walter ran a hand through his thinning hair as he paced back and forth.

There was no way he had another son. Susan would have told him if he'd got her pregnant when they were still dating. Wouldn't she?

Walter checked his watch for the fifth time, but it was as though time had stopped.

Even if he did have another son, surely he wouldn't be unlucky enough to have one who thought he was an elf. Would he?
