Hurrah! This post has been selected as WOW post by "Blogadda"

"Write over Weekend" theme of the week is- ‘You go home and check your Emails. You read the second mail and freeze…’. Begin the story from here.

To make sense of the wonderful idea and my available time with my limited skill sets, I thought of writing a 55+55 words fiction (Two stories, two para each, 55 word each paragraph). Tried a new concept, hope you will like it. If yes, do leave your comments below. If no, still do care to comment. Here we go-

Day I
You go home and check your Emails. You read the second mail and freeze… it was a confidential mail from President’s office, subjected “Organizational announcement”. It talked about movement of few leadership members and one of them is your boss who has decided to pursue career outside the company.
You close your eyes, pinch yourself and read again to see if that’s true. You repeat the same process many a times but the text remains same and news unchanged. Before you could further react, a plethora of calls flood your cellphone, enquiring the same. You do not know what to answer. You really don’t.

Day II

You go home and check your Emails. You read the second mail and freeze… it’s from your ex girlfriend who is now married to someone else. She writes in to tell you how much she still loves you and she’s coming back to your city with her family so that she can meet you again.

You delete the mail, ignore her calls and Google for your new boss- Mr. Shyam Ahuja.  He joined the office and calls his team for weekend lunch at his new house. Excited, you reach the address and ring the bell to find your ex girlfriend open the door. “Meet my wife- Revathy, says Mr. Ahuja”.

PS: How much I am stimulated to write – I came home and check mine Emails. I read the second mail and freeze…It was from Team Blogadda who informed that I have won the first prize in “Shave or crave” contestJ Ah! If wishes were horses, why would I have written 3 unique posts for this contest and not stopped just wishing? JTeam Blogadda, are you listening? J

  8. Hi Ekta,

    Hmm, that was an interesting take on F55 and the prompt given by BlogAdda. You've done a good job at it.
    Both need to be read together because they're linked together, I didn't get the sense after reading the first one.
    Quite Creative, Ekta :)

    Keep it up, wish you luck for the contest.

    Regards

    1. Hey rat...thanks so much. I too am not good at telling stories so I have to play on my spontaneity and that's how a lot of these stories are born and shaped. I find 55 word fiction completely challenging and interesting to read.

      Will await your 55 word fiction. Once u r through, do drop me a line on my blog so I can read :)

      I am sure you will do a fantastic job :)

  16. Hmm! you made him a fish fry in just 55 words.
