Viki



"I knew this was the end. I wished it was not."

Viki re-read the last lines. She had reached the conclusion, but like life, it was vague.

"Hey, have you read 'Viki's Story'?" she heard someone say.

"Yes. Total crap. Don't know what the author was thinking," pat came the reply.

Viki stifled a sob. Was it only the writer's failure, or would she also be blamed for her incompetence as the protagonist of the novel? The author would get another chance, but the character? Never.

"I knew this was the end. I wished it was not," she sighed.

  10. I really liked two lines here:

    "She had reached the conclusion, but like life, it was vague."

    "The author would get another chance, but the character? Never."

    Rings true. :)
