Writing 101 Day Seven: Give and Take
Today’s prompt: Write a post based on the contrast between two things–whether people, objects, emotions,places or something else.
Today’s twist: Write your post in the form of a dialogue.
There was a hot debate going on between Selfish and Selfless. Each told the other it was better, I could not help listening in to their debate.
“I have learned from experience it’s not worth helping anyone, I’m happy taking care of myself,” Said Selfish.
“Aren’t you ashamed of yourself admitting this hideous behavior, what exactly is the privilege you gain by being like this?” Said Selfless.
“Privilege?” “well for starters, I do not have to share anything with anyone, I live in this huge mansion, my servants are instructed not to let anyone in.”Said Selfish.
“And this is how you plan to live your life, what happens when you are sick, no one will come to help you?” Said Selfless.
” I do not need anyone, I have all the medication I need with books to help me what to take when.” Said selfish.
“Oh give me a break, if books and medicine is all you need, why do we have physicians, they prescribe the medicine and tell you to use them with instructions?” Said Selfless.
“I don’t need a physician, I have a state of the art TV, I can switch to any channel and get my instructions from there , I do not have to go to a physician” Said Selfish.
The discussion was heating up Selfish felt a pain in his chest, he didn’t know what brought it about, he lay down in the nearest couch, he was breathing hard, his servant came running to see what his master wanted, but the master was having severe pains, therefore he could not find out what he must do.
He ran to Selfless and pleaded with him: “Please sir,” he said, “can you tell me what I must do?”
“Call an ambulance, take him to the nearest hospital.” was his reply.
