“You know, you can’t do it”

Her voice echoed in my mind longer than i thought it would. It had a distinct flair, like the one voice you dream of all the time when you can’t sleep.

I knew i was being careless but that didn’t change the fact that she was so beautiful.

She was imperfect in her perfections and so beautiful in her madness.

And i didn’t mind the fact that she was a Lawyer.

“Why is the world so corrupt?” she shouted again.

I loved when she was talking to herself. She suddenly looked at me, paused for a while and asked ” Why do you stare at me all day?”

Sitting in that corner and staring at her i wish i had an answer.

  1. Haha she’s got 99 problems but the ram ain’t one…well done Nadig. Btw “dream of” I believe you meant, not “off” 😉

  2. A goat’s view of the world – or at least of the lawyer he’s clearly in love with! Nice one.
    ps – you might like to change ‘off’ to ‘of’ in that first paragraph.

  3. Nadig, A very creative take on the prompt. I agree that she’s got a problem. I think the job is getting to her. She needs help is she’s talking to herself and a stuffed goat. Well-written and humorous piece. :)—Susan

  4. Nicely done, Nadig. You really bring her to life, and make me curious about the relationship. In the 3rd line done… it should be “one voice you dream *of*. Your stories are getting better all the time! 🙂

  5. I’m not sure I’d hire that lawyer. Nice tale, Nadig.

    I do have one suggestion, take it with a grain of salt, leave out the word suddenly. It rarely adds anything to a story and would give you an extra word to use elsewhere.
