The Telephone Call 

Recently I came across a very interestingly written short story by Dorothy Perkins. What might seem like a hopeless romantic rant in the beginning turns out to be quiete a journey in itself throughout the story. What’s interesting here is that the entire story is based on the protagonist awaiting her ex lovers call and all the thoughts (umpteen of them) and emotions she experiences in the wait. 

Commenting on the role of hope, patience, eagerness, self reflection, needs…the writer has expressed the  varying moods after the end of a romantic love affair in the most honest way.
