A quick tale 82

Earlier this evening

Right now only one person is alive. In flashback however, both of us started crossing the busy road.


Written for the Caferati Weekly Flash Fiction Competition. Theme for week 4 - flashback

"Incisive", they said. "Insightful", people commented in her blog. "Sharp", "Beautiful","Creative"...

The comments section in her blog couldn't get enough of the adjectives.

And then, came the inevitable. A point where she decided to write in order increase the count of stories. Or rather, for a much more noble cause.

A point where she accidentally stopped writing for the joy of writing. And then the comments started turning drab.

Her stories were now cliched. Common place.

Or was she reaching out to a lot more people ? ... including commoners, who were getting to know a thing-or-two after reading her stories.
