Desperate Times Call For Desperate Measures : ZAPFIC50 | Based on 5 Minute Freewrite (Day 1842) | Prompt: carpet
This microfiction story is for the prompt "carpet". It reminds me not of the soft rug one has in his home, but of personality traits and unfriendly behaviors. Sometimes individuals or companies just won't treat their customers right unless they take drastic measures. I base my ZAPFIC50 story on this latter concept and is told in exactly 50 words. The challenge was created by @felt.buzz.
I based my 50-word story on @mariannewest's Freewrite prompt: Day 1842 5 Minute Freewrite: Monday - Prompt: carpet. If you'd like to join in from the daily prompts, visit @mariannewest's Profile and view each day's freewrite prompt.
Below is my story.
Moving to a new country, Bethany faced a seven-day deadline for her brokerage funds to be released from her former country's bank. Calls for emergency funds landed on deaf ears.
With savings depleted, she contacted her lawyer.
Immediate action was taken, as the bank manager was called on the carpet.
The screenshot at WORDCOUNTER.net evidences my use of exactly 50 words to create my ZapFic50.
Happy rest of the week everyone with whatever your endeavors.
