Glimmer of hope- #55WordChallenge

Hoping for a miracle, she dialled his number from the red phone booth in that cosy corner. As it started ringing, Miriam watched as the sun rose slowly over the horizon, bathing the trees, nestled together.

In Sydney, he paused as the phone rang. Shrugging, he mounted his bike and rode out of her life.

  3. You know it takes skill to write micro fiction and with three picture prompts to be combined in one, it takes three times the smartness….great work, Shailaja 🙂

  4. Shailaja, Yet another 55 worded magic on paper with nature, emotion, heartbreak. It is really difficult to paint a picture with only that much and you continue to churn out them one after another. Hope Miriam has found solace in something else :-).

  5. when relationships end without closure, it can be the most difficult thing…beautifully written
