Phone Shop #4

by

I was told to ask for Saskia and to say that there was an old family member I wanted to get in touch with.
"What you ask is not easy, to connect to this network you need special SIM".
I nodded and she locked the front door of the shop.
"You have money? It is 200 hundred for SIM then £1 each message".
I gave her £220 in cash. From a drawer she took a SIM, the connections arranged in a little pentagram and put it into a battered Nokia 8110.
"If you have number, it will text the dead"

    Think I’ve still got one of that model knocking around somewhere. Wonder if the numbers are still in it.

    This is like a modern day episode of the Twilight Zone.
