The Game Has Just Begun!!
An envelope lay at her table.
Disinterestedly, she opened it.
The color drained from her face and her mouth went dry.
Her heart thundered behind her ribs as she saw the pictures.
Her face mirrored expressions of shock, panic, fear, shame and regret…
The note read,
“Choose – 20 Million Dollars or Be My Submissive Slave”

Okay! Now I am curious to see those pictures. 😛
You can’t blame me: they are worth 20 million dollars or eternal slavery! 😀

another one from shilpa….now pls tell us soon abt the pictures……

Shilpa – if you intended this to be a psychopath /serial killer angle then it was good. the other angle could be a prank / practical joke.
did you mean any of this or was there another angle?

Who is that idiot who still choose to send blackmail pictures by post instead of emailing ? 😛
btw, wat kind of pictures are those ? :O or you have an entirely different twist for the kahani ?

And what might she have chosen?
January 30, 2010 7:11 am|
just one word..
u took me in a completely different track of cheating and infidelity till the last line….
January 30, 2010 7:15 am|
Sorry,can not choose unless I see the pictures.
It may be a trap.

@ Richa : I can understand your curiosity!! But you know that curiosity killed the cat!!
@ Shahid : Now you gave me an idea!! 😀
@ Gyanban : Cool!! You thought more about it than me!! The prank/practical joke angle never crossed my mind! :p

@ Lakshmi Rajan : Good question, LR!! But the postal services are operational still!!
Pictures?? Must be pretty important/critical, that’s why the price for them was …So High!! 😀

Good one Shilpa:) I hope there’s a continuation. Always wondered what ppl do when they get choices like this.
January 30, 2010 4:34 pm|

Hmm what were those pics??? I’m afraid its not gona be a prank na..
anyways..best 55 fiction i have read 🙂

I would have pretended not having received the letter. Postal dept. is very much capable of not delivering the letter. I mean, if something is worth 20 million, why would someone send a ‘letter’

For some reason I think the pics are something ummm…U get it…but come on Shilpa clarify!!
January 31, 2010 3:13 am|
You’ve become the queen of 55 fiction 🙂
Delivering brilliant pieces week after week.
Keep up the good work Shilpa.
