Unanswered



As soon as the call went into voice mail, she dialed the number again. The darkness and distance between them fed her determination. She had to hear his voice to know things were okay. She could not stop herself, calling again and again, forty times in all. However he didn’t know; his phone’s ringer was turned off.

The prompt: Ringing

  1. I hate that, when your calling dreading the worst. You don't know what's going on and your mind starts to run wild. And really in the end it is just the ringer.

    1. It is a good fiction prompt. It forces me to write outside myself.

  5. Maybe his ringer was turned off for a reason, she sounds a bit obsessive. Nice take on the prompt.

  10. You are getting a good response, as well you should. I have to wonder where you get your idea's from. Quite the imagination ... though, I think it could too easily be a true story. Nice job, McGuffy ...

  11. And I bet he got an earful when she finally spoke to him; nothing worse than not knowing. . . when someone doesn't answer . . . when you expect them to. Short, sweet and to the point. I like it very much. x

  12. I have nightmares that I might do something like that and be revealed as a complusive stalker - somehow I'm getting stalker behavior here rather than concern.

    1. There's that fine line, and it is interesting to see the interpretation.
