Is there a writer in u? Or are you in a mood to read some short interesting stories? Here's the Story Section for all tastes.

Lulu didn’t want to go to the play, this Wednesday was going to be very busy, she had realty meetings and clients to drive around.

Called “Narnia,” the play was based on the novel by C.S. Lewis. It was a musical. “You know that I don’t like musicals,” she told Walt.

“I can never understand what they’re saying when they sing, and the music is not that good, either.”

He told her that there were a lot of great musicals, famous just for their music if nothing else, she asked when he was going to take her to one.

Well, he said, someone had told him that this play was the one. She still said that she’d rather not go.

He argued that they only went to a play once every two months, so please be ready, he would pick her up the next day at 7 p.m.

Throughout the next day, he thought about the play—maybe Lulu was right. He called up a couple of friends to ask if they had seen the play, but they had not.

At about 6 p.m., he had the bright idea to Google the play.

Sure enough, he found a site that contained music samples from the play, he sampled about six tunes; they did nothing for him. Lulu was right, he thought, at least about this play.

He was going to call Lulu, but just then his sister called him and they talked for at least half an hour.

Walt finally called Lulu at 6:55 p.m. “You were right, honey,” he said. “The music is not very good. So let’s not go to the play, if that’s all right with you.”

That's great, she said. “So, let’s go to a movie,” she suggested.

“A movie? When?”

“Right now!” she said. She was all dressed up, and she was ready to go somewhere! but he wasn’t, he had already decided to stay in. "How about a movie tomorrow?" he asked.

“Tomorrow!?” she yelled over the phone, she was furious, did he have any idea what a difficult day she had had, trying to finish all her realty work so that she would be ready by 7 p.m.?

And then he had the nerve to call her up at 6:55 to tell her to forget it? Forget it?!

Had he thought about calling her up earlier?

Had he thought about asking her for her opinion before deciding everything on his own? “Of course not!” she said as she answered her own question.

This was just one more example, she raged on, of how he had absolutely no respect for her, and she was tired of it.

“We’re through!” she shouted just before hanging up.
