The Dream Contract

For years, I had harboured the dream of becoming the queen of the tinsel town. The new contract in my hand promised me just that. It was a jackpot. I tore it off. Aiming to hit the bin, I gave it a flight. I missed the aim. In that moment, the crumpled paper and the tinsel meant nothing to me. Or did it? The voice inside me yelled, “You FOOL!”.

I stood up and dialed the agent’s number, “Ludwig! Can you arrange another copy of the contract? The first one got into an irretrievable state.” The other voice said, “As you say Madam.”

This is the first time I am doing a pure fiction piece within a word limit.

If you are unsure what this is all about do take a look at β€˜What is 100WCGU?’


  1. That was brilliantly done, Anamika. I didn’t feel that this is your first fiction piece. Tell me the truth Anamika, have you been cooking up fictions behind our backs? πŸ™‚

    1. Haha Vinitha πŸ˜€ I have added masala here and there to my posts to tone down the spicy nature later on in order to keep the posts authentic but never have I cooked up pure fiction before. Thank you for your encouraging comment.

  2. What a fantastic take on the prompt! Really creative & having taken it that way you put a twist in. I wasn’t sure if she was going for it or not. I do hope you will share you work on 100wcgu again!
