Two phrase story #18

I provide the first phrase and you complete the sentence, in your own way and we see in how many different directions one thought can be taken…..

“It’s time. ” he said, looking at his watch…….”

My attempt
“…….. and the whistle blue behind him. ”

Your turn


About hbhatnagar

I need to fill this up with much better content than I had populated it with earlier. Why I write a blog maybe? I started blogging in 2009 or thereabouts. I was a newly turned atheist and wanted to converse with others of the same persuasion. We're not exactly a big population group in India! It didn't go very well and I sort of lost interest, posting a few things now and then. I got a lot more regular over the last few months and have been posting almost daily since February '15. There were many reasons why I gradually became more regular in posting, but one way or the other, here I am! So this blog has taken shape, being at different points in time my showcase, my comedy club, my art gallery, my book club, my therapist, my close friend, my innermost self....but always my little corner of the world. You are all welcome to visit and I hope you stay awhile! A few points about me because I don't want to lead anyone on(and trust me this does become an issue more often than I'd care to admit). I'm Indian, the brown-skinned variety; if race, ethnicity or skin colour is an issue, you don't have to get to know me any more than what you see on my blog. I'm 40, so if age is an issue, please be informed accordingly. I was a doctor, an ophthalmic surgeon for 10 years before I quit practice.

  3. β€œIt’s time. ” he said, looking at his watch…….”
    β€œβ€¦β€¦.. and the whistle blue behind him. ”

    They looked into each others eyes as the train started picking up speed, she walked along side to keep up with the pace for a while and then stopped.

    Traced his waving hand for as far as she could see before it disappeared into the unknown.

    And at that moment everything came at once, her feet felt wobbly like the ground beneath her feet was snatched away, a surge of tears, lump in her throat and a stabbing pain in her heart, one she knew she had to carry for the rest of her life.

    This just brought back way too many memories, funny how time works, I can still remember it as if it was just happening a minute ago.

  12. It’s time. ” he said, looking at his watch, as he hurriedly took the last few sips of his coffee – not noticing the added bitterness that was masked by the rich flavour, and would forever remain her secret.

  13. “It’s time.” he said, looking at his watch, and the lever was pulled, thus, delivering the murderers into the depths of death’s dark abyss.
