Prompt 1 – Flash Fiction
A posse of police vehicles entered the resort hotel. They had received information about a planned terrorist attack. They were scanning the record of each guest.
“Naseem Ahmad?” The guy at the reception desk murmured, “He is an author who has checked in to write a book undisturbed. He does not interact with anybody, other than room service.”
“We need to conduct a surprise check in his room.”
“Sure, Sir! Room no. 404, fourth right from the elevator. Here is the set of extra keys.”
Naseem Ahmad was not in the room. They found a fountain pen, and an unfinished manuscript of a book, tentatively titled A Night of Terror. The entire area was put on high alert, while they combed the vicinity.
Naseem watched the drama with binoculars from a nearby terrace. He had made an anonymous call to the police, to get first hand ideas for his book.
The chosen three elements – author, resort hotel, fountain pen
