The Stranger On The Phone Part 11 (Short Story)

An ambulance arrived in a few minutes about the same time as a police van. Tricia stepped aside and two of the paramedics bent to attend to him. At the same time, a policeman approached her. Another policeman engaged Cem in a talk about the incident.

“My name is Sam,” one of the paramedics with the victim said. “You’ve been in a motor accident. Answer me without moving your head. We don’t know if you’ve a neck injury. Who’re you?”

“Jack White,” he mumbled, and the other man wrote it down on a notebook.

“Where’re you?”

“USA.”

“What time of the day is this?”

“It’s dark.”

“Excuse me, madam, can I ask you some questions about the accident?” the uniformed man with Tricia said.

“Feel free.”

“My name is Baris.”

“Tricia.”

“Do you know him?”

“We met for the first time shortly before the unpleasant incident. It happened about 20 minutes ago.”

The True Test Of Your Understanding Of Your Partner

 

quote 9

 

Understanding your partner is very important, but most couples think that they understand themselves simply because they have lived together for a few years without engaging in any quarrel.

Ask yourself, how will I behave when my partner does something very bad to me? Will I give them the chance to clarify things, or will I just assume that we do not have anything in common anymore?

The true test of your understanding of your partner usually comes when they hurt you and you are in a situation to either end the relationship or seek for the reason why they behaved the way they did, despite the love both of you share.

Taking out time to ask questions about the strange behaviour of your spouse towards you, and seeking possible solutions if necessary can help put you in a good state to decide what to do about your relationship.

The Stranger On The Phone Part 10 (Short Story)

“Someone please call the ambulance,” she cried out, and then calmed down as much as she could. “Are you all right?” she asked more than once, but he was unresponsive.

She sat down behind his head and stabilized it to avoid unnecessary movement. She took a quick look over his body but there was no visible injury. She checked the pulse on his throat and had a glimpse of hope as she felt something.

“You have been in an accident,” she began quietly, “It’s important that you don’t try to move. My name is Tricia. The ambulance is coming.”

The driver of the car Cem, a man with a svelte physique and wearing a pair of medicated glasses, stood silently before them feeling doubtful about what happened.

Daily Prompt: The Road Less Traveled

photo-1446769357257-5aa1b1bfcd65

There were just two roads in the woods for me.

I saw that one was short and the other long,

The former was free and I clearly see;

Trip through the latter could take a yearlong.

I was confused which way to go in life:

Both roads were neatly tarred and beautiful,

But I feared that the ends were torn by strife

Or that I could face a tough life struggle.

I chose the shorter road though but was scared.

Halfway I realized it was less traveled:

“I’ve erred and can’t dare the end,” I declared.

“It’s short but lack what I need,” I grumbled.

My judgement had cost me time and effort,

Now I’ll retrace my path for my comfort.

This post is in response to the daily prompt: The Road Less Traveled

Greediness

Greed has a way of making you indulge in yourself so much that you may step away from your partner without realizing it, and the result is that you and your partner are not anymore on the same page.

 

In such a state, you are likely not to care enough because of your fixation on how to care for yourself first.

 

The bad thing with greed is that it may make you lose your goodwill, not plan well especially in terms of the money you and your partner make, and not have enough of everything you have. You are likely to squander what you have without any plan for the future, borrow from your partner and other sources in order to satisfy your voracious desire.

 

Avoid being greedy by thinking more about you and your partner instead of yourself. By doing that you will be in a good state to plan well for the future growth of your relationship and still have your goodwill intact.
