One Phone Call



Tring Tring…
He was too sleepy to open his eyes…
‘Hey Dad, whazzup?’
‘Son, you’re on TV’
‘What…?’
Click… phone went dead.
‘Damn… should never drink again
Rubbing his eyes, he turned on the TV curiously.
Astounded, ‘Me…??
He stared at his father smiling on the wall.

  14. This will feature in ur 'top 3' posts of all times. Awesome....the plot gets 10 on 10. However, the storytelling will get 8.5 coz there is some room for improvement, though i dunno how exactly. But writers like Poe or Hitchcock could have narrated it a bit better. :))
