The Smartphone Affair

As a westerner, it was her first holiday to a middle-eastern nation.

It was like what she had imagined.

She remembered- 'Aladin and the Magic Lamp'.

Fascinated, she was busy clicking photographs using her smartphone.

Just then, a monkey snatched her phone.

"S-T-O-P! Give my phone, Abu!"

Abu was Aladin's pet monkey's name!

The monkey stopped.

A young man started conversing with the monkey in Persian.

The monkey handed him her smartphone!

"Here, Miss!"

"Thank you!" she said relieved.

"How did you know his name was Abu?" he asked.

She smiled.

What is your name?" she asked.

"Aladin", he answered.

100 words story for Friday Fictioneers

Has a thief ever snatched or stolen any of your possessions? If yes, had you been successful in retrieving your belongings?


  1. Dear Anita,

    Fun and fanciful tale.



  2. Sounds like a Disney remake :-)

  3. Aw, what a nice interweave of the fairy tale with reality. Well done.

  4. That was a fun one, Anita!

  5. Sounds like a romantic story to me. Maybe if the chemistry wasn't there, "Aladdin" would have instructed "Abu" to run away with the phone -- as usual. Good story, Anita.

  6. A modern retelling of Aladin? Such fun!

  7. Walked right into a fairy tale ... what fun!


Your words mean a lot to me.
