Daily Prompt: Groupthink

Write a post that includes dialogue between two people — other than you. (For more of a challenge, try three or more people.)

Aliens They stay silent for a while, then Elga says:

“He’s observed well, but his memory is failing. I doubt that he will write much more about his experience…”

“I would not be so sure,” Gabrielle replies, “Besides, he’s not on his own.”

“Do you mean, Sarah, his wife?”

Gabrielle pauses, as if recalling some distant event:

“Of course, but there is also my protégée… That young woman has not finished with her old flame yet.”

“Do you think she would push him to write on what he already has difficulties in remembering?”

“This could be one reason. But I expect what he may not remember, she will, and what he may then write, would be her version of the story. Possibly that we would not chose to publicise…”

Elga looks up at her friend,

“But surely you have so much influence on that girl, she would follow you on this?”

“Ah,” replies Gabrielle with a sigh, “Sarah may be convinced that her husband is deluded, in a mild and inoffensive way, but Melissa, she knows the truth, she knows where he went, what he saw, what he was told…”

“And you think she would take his side, as it were?”

Gabrielle gathers her thoughts. They are, after all, conversing in a language which is still alien to both of them. After a few minutes:

“She’s independent now, what the encounter with Julian has created, is a new outlook on life for her: she thinks for herself.”

“And she may not be that sympathetic to our views,” adds Elga with a rare gesture of annoyance.

“I think we may have to be a bit careful, from now on, with Miss Baudoin.”

« Je ne plierai pas, je ne m’en irai pas en silence. Je ne me soumettrai pas. Je ne me retournerai pas. Je ne me conformerai pas. Je ne me coucherai pas. Je ne me tairai pas. Le courage, c’est de chercher la vérité et de la dire ; ce n’est pas subir la loi du mensonge triomphant » (Jean Jaurès).
