Aheila’s Drabble Day Challenge – Classifieds.

😉 Good way to get back into blogging after a couple of days’ break is to do my mate Aheila’s Drabble Day. J This has become slightly addictive I have to add. If you want to participate in it, I would suggest that you go over to The Writeaholic’s Blog. It’s released every Saturday (at the moment). You can also check out Aheila’s online fiction – the stories are very enjoyable. I’d classify them as urban sci fi. 😉

My drabble on the word classified.


There were no clothes anywhere. None.

I stood there in my nakedness, staring at the hotel room, hearing the words of my ex in my head:

I will give anybody who photographs her naked ten thousand dollars!

I felt cheap somehow. I was worth far more than that…


I knew that the photographers were coming. A first glance revealed nothing which I could use to cover myself but then, I saw the paper. I lounged for it just as the door opened. He was with them, but he was going to be surprised. I undid the sheets and wrapped the paper around me. When I stood up, cameras flashed but I was ready for them, the word Classifieds protecting my… Classifieds.

    Addictive? Enjoyable? Are you trying to make me partial to your drabble? *laughs* Thanks Alyssa!
    As for your story, I thoroughly enjoyed it. Two types of classifieds (the actual paper and the boyfriend’s ad), suspense, a pun; what’s not to like?

      I blame you for most things Aheila
