Fifteen years has passed since that last day in college. Among many things that night, he had also confessed his love for her. Of course, she had laughed it off then. And a year later married his best friend.
But the irony is that it is finally him who is fighting their divorce case today.
Connecting it with Write Tribe’s festival of words. The day six prompt is 55 fiction.
* * *
It so happens that coincidentally this story matches the life story of one of my very good friend. Loved it!
Really? Well they do say truth is stranger than fiction…
and he might once again confess his love for her……………………………
Well he might..
Oh! Great 55ier Richa!
Thanks Aditi 🙂

Life is strange indeed.. shattered dreams, rekindled fires…. nice story Richa.. 🙂
Thanks Vaisakh 🙂
So, who is he fighting for? 🙂
this is quite like the life coming to a circle, like you mentioned in your last post 🙂
That is the question,, who is he fighting for..
Ahhh the irony if life… Brilliant ending.
Thanks Rajlakshmi 🙂
Ironical indeed! Such is life… not fair at all!
wish I could disagree..
As Kalpana said, let him propose again and she may accept.
Good story in so few words
Thanks a lot. and perhaps yes proposal would have come by or not..
Oh that is a wicked twist of fate! Is the lawyer married. 😀
Another bit that I didn’t mention 😀
One never knows what life has in store…very nicely written
Yes Hemlata one never knows..
Kismat ke khel Very sad.
jee Usha jee..
If he truly loved her, he would be feeling sorry for her now .. In spite of the fact that she turned him down .. Will he be willing to ask her once again?
Question of the day 😀
Amazing what you can say in 55 words and with FEELING
Well quantity of words never mattered..
lif is stranger than fiction!
It is meena..
Very nicely done. Loved the irony!
Glad you liked it Tina 🙂
Lol! aptly titled. I couldn’t help but smirk. I don’t know why but I did.
yeah.. happens.. we never know what is in the future store..
True Archana, we never know….
Damn, that gave me goosebumps. It hurts right??
I am sure it does..
How people grow apart!
Only to later perhaps come together?
Twisted fate ! Kudos over this piece !!
Thanks Sreeja 🙂
What happens next!?
Should I write 30 55ers for this too 😛
Truly ironical. Good one Richa.
Thanks Tulika 🙂
Life has it’s own plans…no matter how smart or careful we try to be
How ironical na!
But, I guess such is life!!
nicely done Richa 🙂
Perhaps, such is life..
Oh oh ! Human relationship s are complicated!
That is true.. they are very complicated…
The little ironies of life…
True, little but profound..
Beautifully scripted Richa in 55 Words:) First love in life always remain and at times, its forever:)
Yes vishal it is so..
That irony is the worst thing, isn’t it? Does he let his emotion rule him or let the lawyer in him deal with it professionally? Love the suspense at the end 🙂
Only time can tell..
A poignant story in 55 words… Gr8… Will she get a second chance with him? 🙂
Perhaps Preethi 🙂
Life is a good entertainer, isn’t it?
I believe it is Tomichan 🙂
Life has so many things in store for us..unpredictable and beyond expectation..
Unpredictable and yes at times full of turning points..
sadly sometimes these do come true!
Yes Nabanita.. truth is stranger than fiction…
I liked how you expressed the irony of life just in 55 words. Skillful.
Thanks namrata 🙂
Interesting one Richa!
Thanks Uma, glad you liked it 🙂
Life sometimes does come a full circle doesn’t it?
More often than never…
Well written Richa!! Its difficult to write 55 fiction and this one is amazing….I also expect Irony-2 in making 🙂
So many of you expect parts from me 😀
That’s ironic indeed
