365 Writing prompts: Unknown Caller

You receive a call from an unexpected person. Who is it, and what is the conversation about? Go!

I lost touch with this person, so when she called, I could not recognize her voice. I guessed wrong.

The phone rings, ring… ring…I pick it up:

Me:    Hello

Unexpected person: Hello, Chaman, guess who?

Me: Is it Ateka?

Unexpected  person: No

Me: I don’t know, who is it?

Unexpected person: I’m Evie( she is excited)

Me: Evie? How did you get my number?(surprised)

Evie: I got it from Mrs. Abbas ( still excited)

Me:Oh Evie where are you? Are you living in Toronto?

Evie: No, I’m still in Whitby, in the same house, I have the same number.

Me: But Evie I called you once, someone picked it up and said, they’ve been living in that house, she never heard the name Evie. I thought perhaps you sold your house and moved to Toronto.

Evie:   No we didn’t sell the house. I wrote to you and my letter came back.

Me: I am so glad I found you. How did you get Mrs. Abbas’s number?

Evie : I asked Sr. Brenda, she gave me her number.

Me: Thank you Evie, I moved to St. John’s a few years ago.

Evie: Chaman I’ll call you again on Thursday.

Me: Thank you Evie, bye!

This was a real conversation between me and Evie. 🙂

  2. My dearest sister,

    I can understand the excitement of finding an old friend again. It was a good idea to share this conversation as it is – it gives us a first hand account of that excitement. So, thanks for sharing it 🙂
