Three Line Tale #40: The Graduation

Ever since she was a little girl, Emma had always dreamed of being valedictorian. She had her heart set on delivering a kickass speech that would make the audience erupt in applause and cheering.
But as she looked at the giant framed version of her brother’s graduation picture, she realized that her own virtual graduation would be world’s apart from her brother’s.

This post was written in response to the Three Line Tales, Week 277 prompt by Sonya. Thanks to Sonya for hosting this challenge. If you want to participate, please visit the link for instructions and other guidelines!

    1. So many dreams! Makes me feel grateful that my school days were over long before this pandemic. That also makes me feel very sad for those kids who didn’t get that luxury.

    1. Oh, I’m so sorry to hear that. Online classes are the worst. Hopefully things will start getting better and you’ll get to spend sometime with your friends again. Covid has really changed our lives. How I wish that the patient zero had never passed it on. 😐

    1. Hopefully this too shall pass, soon.

      Thank you so much. It feels good to be back. I was on a bit of a break. And that turned out to be much longer than I had anticipated. I had written all about that in a blog post 2 days back.
      How have you been?

    2. Online classes are the worst. Though I haven’t experienced them myself, that’s what my brother tells me. Hopefully this too shall pass, soon.

    1. I’m doing great, Aashi. Cases are reducing thanks to the lockdown. We’re taking all precautions and trying our best to stay safe.
      I hope you and yours are safe and well. Stay safe. Take care.
