    Has anyone got a brief idea/story I can use for the title 'Jealousy' in my narrative writing.
    So why would a certain character be jealous? How does tension rise? etc.

    As much as I love specific prompts, vague titles are also great because they allow for so much freedom.

    Initially, my first thought besides the obvious romantic jealousy was (my personal fave of the two):
    An immortal is jealous of a mortal/mortals. They long for their time to end because they feel so disconnected from the world.
    You could make it as dark, sad, or as insightful as you wanted. The ball's in your court on how you take it.

    Or a slightly more cliché idea:
    A person is jealous of a horrible friend who treats them badly, because even though they're horrible, they somehow get all the love and attention.
    Maybe something with a nerd/jock school dynamic could work there, with a flashback of some sort?

    I hope that's okay!
    Best wishes x
