Writing prompts and challenges

Story about Albert and Claudia

I wrote you a story inspired by the daily prompt. I felt like I needed a challenge and this seemed to be an interesting one.

Create a short story, piece of memoir, or epic poem that is 26 sentences long, in which the first sentence begins with “A” and each sentence thereafter begins with the next letter of the alphabet.

Albert is a man on a mission. By the time the clock strikes five, he’ll either be engaged or very sad. Claudia is the woman of his dreams and he is going to ask her to marry him today. Definitely the most exciting day of both of their lives.

Ever since Albert first laid his eyes on Claudia, he knew she would have a positive impact on his life. First time he saw her beautiful smile, he knew he was going to love this woman for the rest of his life. Girl of his dreams, he would say whenever someone asked to describe her.

His palms were getting sweaty as he looked at the clock yet again after too many times. It was barely after noon and he could hardly get his work done from his nerves. Just than his phone rang and he answered to Claudia with a grin in his voice, “Hey my love”. “Kindly tell me where you’re taking me tonight, Albert”, Claudia wanted to know. “Let me surprise you for once in your life my darling”, Albert was determined to keep the venue a secret.

Moment later they hung up and Albert got back to work feeling happier after hearing Claudia’s voice. Nothing could stop him from loving her so much.

Opened bottle of champagne was waiting on the table when Claudia came home from work. Plan was to have a romantic dinner at home, just the two of them. Queen was playing on the stereo, the same song was playing in the night club when they first met. Roses were in vases around the room. The mood couldn’t have been more romantic.

“Um, baby, Could I ask you something extremely important” Albert was nervous. “Variety of things could be said about your beauty, but baby, all I want to say is, will you marry me?” “Xerox guy at work predicted you’d be doing this tonight, darling”, Claudia was laughing. “Yes, yes, yes, of course I will marry you, my love!” “Zimbabwe, should we go there on our honeymoon”, Albert suggested.

It was fun to write it, though some of the letters (Q, X and V) were pretty tough. What do you think? How did I do?

  1. You did great kiddo – it was fun for you to write and even more fun to read it. The honeymoon destination of Zimbabwe also made me laugh a lot. A sweet tale and flows smoothly, you can hardly tell that it was inspired by an alphabetical prompt. Queen on the stereo and in the nightclub was also a nice touch, made it like a modern fairytale.
