Daily Prompt: Everything Changes
Walking down the street,you encounter a piece of paper on the sidewalk. You pick it up and read it and immediately, your life has changed. Describe this experience.
While walking down the street, I saw a piece of paper, I became curious when I saw the message was written in Bengali, my mind told me to pick it up. I did. It was meant for anyone who cares to read the contents. I thought I’ve picked it up therefore whatever is there, means I can take it.
I came home, first thing I did was to unfold the paper . The print was very tiny. I quickly got my magnifying glass and placed it on the paper. It enabled me to read the small print. There were some directions written on it, I was supposed to follow them.
I took the paper with me and started walking, I was told to turn right and walk about twenty yards, there will be another piece of paper on the street mail box. I followed the direction and found the piece of paper.
This time I saw another set of directions, I began to suspect it to be some kind of hoax but my mind was telling me to keep on moving, there may be something worthwhile waiting for me.
I made up my mind, I’d only follow the street to my right and if I find another piece of paper,I’ll go home. As soon as I turned right, I saw a lady in a blue outfit, her back was turned towards me, it was not possible to see her face. Slowly very slowly I caught up to her.
“Hello”! I said.
She turned around and looked at me! I was stunned standing in front of me was my friend, ‘Aziz Fatima’ whom I hadn’t seen for years!
