Write two different versions of a story in our latest creative writing exercise

Set the timer for five minutes. Imagine you are sitting in a café (maybe you are) and the waitress says she has a message for you. However, it is not your name. What do you do next?
Jot down some ideas and brief storylines.

For the remaining ten minutes, write two different versions as flash fiction stories.
