Friends

Once upon a time, many years ago, they were the best of friends.  Such strong was their bond, that they could have easily been the inspiration for all the cute friendship quotes.

But as we know, good things don’t last forever.

One day, she betrayed him. Things took a very bitter turn. There were tears, heartache and they finally parted ways.

Today, she saw him across the road. He hadn’t noticed her. He was about to cross the road, he would surely see her then.

She did not want that. She couldn’t face him now. She had to walk away.

She turned around, took a step…. Snap! Her sandal broke.

I won this one. :D

  1. Nice twist. Whatever I had been expecting, it wasn't this.

  2. Accha, so your strength is the simplicity of the climax.....u build it up nicely, letting the readers get this premonition that sumthing darker and much more sinister was on its way.....and then snap, a sandal breaks...... Delightful

    1. :) well, thanks. Not to sure if that is a strength. I just like anti-climax I guess.
