I decided to join Write Stuff‘s Creative Carnival as a writing exercise. :) Here’s my first contribution. I used this particular idea in an old story that I never finished. This wasn’t written in detail in the story before, but this seemed appropriate for this month’s theme. I don’t think it’s as good as I want it to be because I just wrote this now. :P Here we go. :D
It was Saturday, and Jason could not be more than thankful. School has been pretty rough with him last week, with all the midterm exams he had to study for, but now that it’s all over, he was looking forward to a well-deserved day of rest and relaxation.
It was almost noon, and Jason was sprawled on a bean bag chair in the living room, remote control in hand and a can of Coke on the other. A half-empty bowl of chips sat beside him on the floor, and beside it, their blue cordless phone sat, within immediate answering reach.
After channel surfing for a minute, Jason finally settled with HBO and put the remote control down. He leaned back comfortably, got the chips and was about to put some into his mouth when the phone rang.
