I know mine. We all do, of course: it’s something we’re born with, indelible, immovable, inked into our DNA.

Band of Girls III by José Enrique

Prompt: Cut The Strings Word Count: 1000 Genre: Drama

Radha stared blankly at the bright white of the screen from the borrowed laptop for few minutes, sitting in her dusky desk at the dark corner of the dimly lit room. The night was already creeping in and so were her thoughts regarding the new situation at hand. She was on the one hand proud to be leading the Band of Girls but on the other hand she didn’t had any clue about what to do next or where to start from or why Rita had chosen her or where had Rita lost into again and so on. After few more minutes of blank MS Word file, she closed the laptop defeated and unable to write her first blog post for Band of Girls.

The sea was uneasy. I watched the sunset spill across the water and fragment into frothy shards.

Don reached over for his glass, brushed away a mosquito.

“Let’s stay here,” I whispered. “Please,” but my words melted in the heat. I slid down into the rattan chair.

A waiter appeared, barefoot. A westerner. He glanced at Don, twice over.

A Questionable Affair by Beth Stillman Blaha

Prompt: Mastermind| Word count: 1000 words | Genre: Contemporary

“I so needed a night away from work tonight,” Nina slid onto the bar stool next to Lynette. “Thanks for asking me to meet you out. Sam didn’t give you a hard time about having to be home with the kids?”

Lynette twisted the stem of her martini glass between her fingers. “I didn’t give him a choice,” she said, not looking at Nina.
