Rules are simple-
We have a situation prompt- you must have faced this one before, so why not write about it. You have an uninvited guest at a party. Who is it? What is his/her agenda? And what happens next? I hope you find the prompt interesting and challenging. We are always looking for creative ideas/pictures. And we would love it if you contribute. As always, write bold, write unusual! Have Fun!
As the mushroom begin to show its effects, Sam walks in. Almost waltzing in with his usual silly grin. He walks in? How? I nudge my friend, Kriti.
“Who invited him?” I whisper in Kriti’s ears. She shakes her head in a no, but I know it is her, it has to be her.
I look in his direction, thankfully he is not there anymore.
Sigh! I remember last time when I saw him. That day, he broke up with me. He left me for someone else. It came as a shock, completely unexpected.
I look at Kriti, she is nodding and saying something. I don’t understand what she is trying to say.
Kriti understands me. She knows that I have not got my closure yet. She has seen me crying for Sam, night after night, every night. It has been two years. Two years? Have I been crying every night for the last two years? What is wrong with me? Who does that? Kriti has been asking questions a lot. When will you move on, Lily? I know the answer. Till I find someone else. The void needs to be filled.
I know what you are thinking, why do I need a man to complete myself? I don’t have an answer. I wish you had the answer. You are supposed to be the smart one? Reading stories, writing stories? You are the uninvited, the invisible guest, yet the welcome guest. Change my narrative, Can you?
