When Sid heard of the magic phone which allowed one to speak to a dead person, he too joined the long queue of people, the only condition being, the phone rings when one touches it. Many tried in vain!

Sid picked up the ringing receiver with trembling hands.

        Please give it a try. Write like no one is going to read it ever. I am sure with your descriptive style of writing, you’ll do something amazing with it. Sometimes we underestimate ourselves πŸ™‚
