2021 : Blogging A-Z Challenge: Covid Craziness: A
Welcome to the Covid Crazies 2021 Edition of the Blogging from A-Z Challenge, held every April. Every post will begin with the numbered letter of the alphabet. These will be 100 word, bite-sized Micro-fiction – individual stories of insanity, survival, normalcy or hope and courage.
The entire list of 2021 Covid Crazies posts can be accessed here. Here goes.
As the elevator pings, Astha locks her phone, trying to reign in her emotions. Images of her husband with the woman from C-1603 singe through her. The double doors open to Meera. The woman. Astha stays unmoving for three seconds, her mind taking in her nemesis, registering the ‘no mask’, and then steps in. Her heart pounding, she contemplates petty spiteful revenge. She could dredge up a heavy cough, splatter it all out; curse her for life. She takes a deep breath quietly, sanity taking over. The Covid-19 positive report in her purse keeps her secret safe.

Wow. What I'm thinking right now is C block elevator needs sanitizing, so does her phone & purse. Without a mask cough or not, Meera otherwise is done for 😅 guess that's how Karma works
Oh, the things people have gotten up to, during the pandemic!
Nice one Deepa
Very interesting..short and sweet
Thank you, Mukund Sir! Welcome to my blog!
Head start at its nicest twirling
Thank you, Parul 🙂 Hang around, there’s more coming!
Saner counsel finally prevailed.Short and sweet story.
Thank you, KPT!
She calmed her self – that's wow. In a maddening world isn't that a good balance to have on ourselves? Nice crisp anecdote
We never know what happens in the real world though!
Thriller , I thought she will infect her. Now story twist, Astha was contracted covid due to the nemesis itself through her husband.
Wow, the mind does have a superb imagination na! Maybe there could be a prequel 😛
"New normal" way of revenge 😉 But few people are still sane n that's a relief..
I wouldn’t be surprised if that happens for real!
Short and thoughtful
Thank you, Ranjit!
Short and sharp. Is the revenge feeling smothered by fear of letting out her covid positive status known, or does genuine goodness take over?
Interesting take. Didn’t think of it that way. But coughing would not let out her Covid positive status anyway, so I am thinking we can leave it at goodness? 🙂
