That Lady In Red

The musical performance had garnered good publicity and audience. 

He was delighted to have attended it.

The best part of the show was that he finally got to see her in flesh and blood.

He was amazed that she really existed. 

She was wearing a red gown and was looking like a queen.
He would now be able to complete his painting- 'That Lady In Red'.

After the show, he tried to look for her.
She was nowhere to be found! 

He felt a gentle tap on his back.

Turning back, he got a surprise!
"Are you looking for me?"

Who do you think was trying to get in touch with him?
Do you believe in the law of attraction and that if we truly love something or someone with all our heart, we will attract them to our life?


  1. Reminds me of my days as a theatre reviewer

  2. Ah, now that's left me wondering how things turned out for them. Enjoyable read, Anita.

  3. Wouldn't that be a lovely thing to happen.

  4. I think it was his wife and she'd been watching him. No? Okay.

    Here's mine!

  5. It has to be the woman in red - she wants to know why he was staring at her!

  6. Dear Anita,

    how lovely to have his dream realized.



  7. The story left a pleasant feeling.Thank you

  8. Ah, the anticipation of what's next! :)

  9. I believe we throw energy out into the universe and if we are lucky the right recipients respond -- and vice versa. Well-developed story within the word limit.

  10. Something cosmic going on. A great story to expand.

  11. Lovely story here! I think it must be the lady in red behind him. 😉

  12. Law of attraction...? I dont know, but the Writer's Red lady it is, I think. 🙂

  13. I think it was the lady in red. What a wonderful shock it would have been for him! There certainly seem to be some meetings that are 'fated'. I've met people who became significant to me in one context, only to discover that I could have met them somewhere else earlier, or even in two other different places; and none of the contexts have been related; they're just 'coincidence'.

  14. Aww, I hope it continues to be a happy ending :)

  15. I liked the way you encompassed them both, well done.


Your words mean a lot to me.
