Daily Prompt: Groupthink

Write a post that includes dialogue between two people– other than you. (for more of a challenge, try three or more people.)

Parker, Tom and Howard were busy talking. I stood in the background to find out why they looked so serious.This is what I heard.

Tom: Parker, did you see our boss this morning?

Parker : No what’s up?

Tom: I have some doozies to tell you about.

Parker : Really what can be so amazing?

Howard (joins in ) : I want to know too, it’s always fun to find out about our boss, especially, how does he spend all that money he’s making.

Tom: Howard, you are so nosey, do you always have  to butt in and say your piece, some people!

Tom : Well I was walking along the road, minding my own business, suddenly I heard a car whiz by me, it was our boss, I had a quick glance and saw a lady seated on the passenger’s side, she wasn’t the missus.

Howard :Who was it?

Tom : Will you stop asking questions,Howard?

Parker: Who was it Tom ? I’d like to know too!

Tom : I’ve heard it on the grapevine the boss and his missus are not getting along, so she’s out of town somewhere.

Parker and Howard: WOW, don’t they have children?

Tom : I’ve heard they have a son, he is sent to a boarding school.

Parker: Well, well this is some news.

Howard: Are they getting a divorce?

Tom and Parker: Howard do not jump to conclusions!

NaBloPoMo November 18 A movie https://sabethville.wordpress.com Ranu’s post

Yesterday I watched a Hindi movie.The title was Aseema. It was also the name of the main character.She was the only child of her parents. She did not go through higher studies.Her wealthy parents decided to marry her off to a physician.

She felt her husband very aloof . As she was married already ,she didn’t know what to think.He left her with her parents.The family was told he had business elsewhere,leading them to believe he’d be back soon. Instead she received a letter of divorce. Aseema’s father was angry.This is all he could do.The daughter decided to go to school . She finished her education.The parents looked after her child while she was in school.

She took a job in a college away from her home.Some of her colleagues were wondering why she was not interested to get married.They had no knowledge of her.She did not take them into her confidence.

She had an accident and had to be taken to the hospital.Here she met a doctor who was very kind and helped her with the healing of her leg. The doctor was a bachelor,he did not marry because of his responsibility towards his family.

Aseema fell ill and refused to seek medical help.She was forced to do so by her friend. The doctor who treated her leg, took care of her again. The two started seeing each other and fell in love. When the question of marriage came,Aseema wasn’t sure,she declined because she had to take care of her daughter.

Meanwhile the daughter  was studying in Mumbai.She fell in love with her classmate and wanted to marry him. Aseema was not in favor,she wanted her daughter,to complete her education. The family insisted that Aseema should let her daughter get married. They were married.

Now the family wanted her to marry the doctor. They did get married and I guess lived happily ever after.

It is a good story written by someone from Orrissa. The main characters are not well known.I liked the story,at times I felt their acting was not natural.

When I started watching it, I wasn’t sure I wanted to watch the full movie. The outcome seemed predictable to me.
