Writespiration #120 52 Weeks in 52 Words Week 24

Sacha’s 52 word challenge this week is to write about:

The blood curdling phone call in the middle of the night.


For the fifth time that evening the phone rang.
It was a wrong number, the same person who kept reversing two digits.
They were making us both a nervous wreck.
The call came at 1.am. We braced ourselves.
It didn’t matter that it had been expected.
Except it was the wrong parent.


About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and have a terrible sweet tooth. Best friends are Hubby, our dog Maggie, Bro in NZ, MSM and MOH (and his dog). I am also a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! Due to a nightmare of a house sale in 2014, 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat until April 2017. We made strong friendships both on and off the water, and enjoyed swan and duck families for neighbours. Sadly times change and we were once again house hunting until September. We now reside in a small bungalow a short distance from the beach on the Lincolnshire coast.

    Ritu’s right, that is a fantastic twist. Definitely blood-curdling.
