My LURVE affair with "A Twist in the Tale""

Yes, I’m one of those people who love languages and English enthralls me. The expression of words always makes my fingers rattle on some silly descriptions and stories. It’s like when I start writing, I’ll continue on with something or even just a doodle if I stumped. It’s like humming a tune in words.

Hence, I like the concept of "A Twist in the Tale", a collection of short stories by Jeffrey Archer. He tells you a tale and gives it a sudden unexpected twist at the end. Another example would be the movie: Sixth Sense. Here comes my sample.


The sudden whiff of perfume emanates my senses as I entered the room. It was something I have never smelled and felt before. I glanced from afar and peek around. What is this smell that grips my heart?

Suddenly, I heard a sound. The sound made my heart go cold. Oh, no! Someone has beaten me to it. I can almost feel my heart sinking below my stomach in agony. I try to regain my senses before my legs gave way.

I was only a few steps away and I can see that I am too late. The other person is happily devouring the precious item which I longed for. I opened out my mouth to stop him but then he said, “Aiya. No more already.”
I was devastated.

He turned up and saw me.

“Oh, hi! Was this yours?” He smiled sheepishly at me.

I gave him a look that could even make the Ice Queen freeze. That was when; he pulled it out and showed me the precious item I was dying for. . .

“Munch munch munch”. We happily munch away another packet of Twisties Lurve multigrain chips.

I said to him, “Don’t you ever steal my snacks again. Next time, I’ll pummel you paper spit balls that you won’t believe it was not rain!”
