Here is my contribution:

The Choice!

(100 words)

Cellos were his life. His only passion. Determined to carve a niche for himself as a cellist, he kept waiting for the right opportunity. Even a year of unemployment didn’t dampen his spirit. But nobody can sustain a family on dreams alone. His ever supportive wife understood his yearning to be a successful cellist so she worked odd jobs to make ends meet.

It all changed when she met with an accident and the doctors demanded a lump sum amount for her surgery. He sold the cellos to save her. He realized it was time to take charge of things.

    • Thank you for mentioning that and getting the gist of the story.. He thought cellos is what completed his life until he realized his wife’s contribution in keeping his passion alive! ‘Better late than never’.
      Thanks for reading.

    • Yes. That’s always the possibility to buy the cello back later. His dream isn’t going anywhere but his wife would have. Some times one has to make tough choices. Thanks for reading.

    • So true.. No worldly possessions can be as precious as the loved ones who always have your best interest in mind. Am glad I could surprise you. Thanks for reading.

  1. time to take charge. no question. well done.

    picky note: “His ever supportive wife understood his yearning to be a successful cellist so she worked odd jobs to make ends meet.” comma after cellist.
