Daily Theme for December 6, 2012.

Imagine a misunderstanding that could have been simply resolved by either information or action that can be explained in one sentence.
Write the scene three ways: one from the point of view of the character who is privy to the information revealed in the final sentence. One from an omniscient point of view that selectively reveals information and then finally one from the unwitting character.
