Writing 101: Day 7, Give and Take

Today’s post is in response to Blogging U’s Writing 101 prompt …

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.

As I sat in the waiting room, I could hear loud voices and laughter coming from a back room. Ten minutes after my scheduled appointment, I could feel my panic rising.

“If you leave right now, no one will ever know that you were here.” taunted Flight.

Fight answered firmly, “No, I can do this!”

Looking around at all of the information on the wall, Flight just couldn’t stay quiet. “Look at all of this information. You’ll never be able to handle this.”

Taking a deep breath, Fight replied a little less assuredly now, “I can do this.”

Hearing the door open and two women emerge, Flight laughed. “Well, you missed your chance to get out unnoticed.”

One woman whispered a question and the other boisterously answered, “She’s for me and she can wait.”

This didn’t sit well with Flight. “Are you going to let her talk about you like that?”

Fight whispered, “I am here and now I have to do this.”

Once inside the office, the woman announced confidently, “I am an attorney and I will be interviewing you today.”

Flight, of course, was quick to speak up. “An attorney. You are interviewing with an attorney. She must be really smart. Just try not to make yourself look too stupid.”

Fight shivered, “Is it cold in here? My teeth are chattering.”

As the questions continued and the interview took a turn for the worst, Flight just couldn’t stay silent, “Did you really just say that? I don’t know. What kind of answer is that?”

Fight replied, “It was a hard question. I really didn’t know the answer. Be quiet Flight so that I can concentrate.”

As the interviewer wrapped up the questions with the standard statement … more interviews scheduled next week … we’ll call you … Flight had to butt in. “I knew you should have been more prepared. You should have done more research.”

Fight had no more fight left in her, “Maybe you are right Flight. But, I did the best that I could.”


About nonnymoose2014

I have recently retired from the healthcare field, nursing. As I try to figure out what I want to be when I grow up, this seemed like the perfect time to try my hand at blogging again. In the past, my success (or lack thereof) I believe hinged on my fear of revealing too much about myself. I have a desire to “put it all out there” BUT I want to do it on my own terms … anonymously! Thus came Nonny Moose.
