Transition of Thoughts

Weaving thoughts into words

55 word fiction: Love #AtoZChallenge

55 word fiction: Love

It had been a long time since they had met each other in person. Their love had gone ‘virtual’ for the foreseeable future in the face of lockdowns and quarantines. While it wasn’t something they were ever prepared for, they tried to take it one day at a time to adjust to the new normal.

I am taking the A to Z Challenge 2020 with Blogchatter and my theme is Microfiction

  1. Oh Yes! I do wonder sometimes, how people in love (but not physically together yet) might be suffering through this lockdown. Nice little story.

  2. I love to read microfiction. Loved reading your story.

    True, in lockdown virtual meetups has taken the front seat. But there is a limit to it. It’s one of the challenging times for the people in love. But isn’t it a soothing feeling to have the assurance that their loved one is safe and they will be able to meet very soon in a healthy state? I see it that way..

      Yeah I guess virtual meetups cannot replace the real ones for sure. But then, as you say it definitely gives a soothing feeling that our loved ones are safe :).

  4. This is indeed the new normal.
    Much expressed in 55 words.

      Surely not easy. I guess it’s all about the effort a couple can take to make things work!

  6. The local lovers now share the lot of the long-distance lovers. 🙂

      I am sure it would be quite a challenge for these local lovers to be able to manage as long distance lovers. But I guess they would overcome the barriers through determination :).

  7. One day at a time is the best way to do it right now. Weekends In Maine

  8. So true. Very relatable. Hopefully, this ordeal will end soon.
