Five Sentence Fiction- rain

Five Sentence Fiction – Rain



The first shower of the season made me nostalgic,  I went out to get some fun and drench as I did in the  childhood.

My neighbors, hearing me sneezing hard poured advises, like what should I do and what should I take.

Mrs. Ayer brought black pepper Rasam, a good cure for cold she informed while Mrs. Gupta was ready with ginger tea and  did not rest until they have made me change my wet clothes and wrapped me with the blanket.

They started telling each other  all sorts of stories about how a simple cold can cause pneumonia or some other dangerous disease if not treated properly and one even recited how her distant relative died after suffering from a simple looking cough and cold.

Between all this hullabaloo one things became clear that everyone is a doctor of some sort and my neighbors, my true friends, loved and cared for me and I, a 70 years old,was not a lonely and abandoned  person in this world.


Friday Fictioneers- 18/7/2014/ OPTIMISM

Word Count 100



Life can be very boring, sitting whole day in a corner, watching workers doing their job, even for a stuffed goat.

Do you believe in animism? I do. I have soul like plants, winds and mountains. I can’t speak but I can understand everything.

When one day one worker scolded her pretty daughter for not studying properly and failing in the same class again and again that if she fails one more time he will marry her off to me.

Since then life has become a bit interesting. I am waiting for her to fail.

Optimism makes life bearable.


First version of FF


I was assigned the most important job in the office to keep  watch on fellow workers.

I knew they despised me and whispered to each other, ‘ see that back biter, sitting there whole day like a stuffed goat, doing nothing and bleating all the time.’

I might have resigned long back but one day I overheard the boss threatening that pretty worker, ‘ look you silly goat! You make too many mistakes. One more mistake and I will make you marry that goat and resign.’

Since then I’m waiting for her to make a mistake. Hope keeps a man alive.


( Which one is better friends. Feedback please.)

Object Lesson

Posted on

Object Lesson-

Sherlock Holmes had his pipe. Dorothy had her red shoes. Batman had his Batmobile. If we asked your friends what object they most immediately associate with you, what would they answer?

A pair of powerful spectacles has sometimes sufficed to cure a person in love.

My friends will definitely associate me with specs. No one has ever seen me without specs. Actually my eyesight is not that bad but I’m not at ease until I put them on my nose all the time. I can’t think without them. I’m not comfortable without them, I think they make me look intelligent( ha ha,joking). I may be wrong but now they have become my identity.

Daily Prompt- Full Disclosure

Posted on

Daily Prompt- Full Disclosure- A mad scientist friend offers you a chip that would allow you to know what the people you’re talking to are thinking. The catch: you can’t turn it off. Do you accept the chip?


When my mad scientist friend came to me with offer, I thought it would be interesting to what other people, you are talking to, especially cat, dog or other animals are thinking but only sometimes. Otherwise it will interrupt my talking as I’ll be busy hearing what they are thinking.

Had I been a detective, it would have helped me know read the criminal’s mind and solve the mystery. 

My mind itself is chattering all the time and to burden it will others thought will be too much, it will become insane.

Moreover it will be like trespassing. I do not like others to know what I’m thinking when they are talking.

Usually people don’t listen to each other. Their mind is preoccupied with their thoughts. They just wait for the chance when other person will stop talking and they will start, some people don’t even wait for that. They have habit of interrupting. 

So just for fun and only for some time I would have accepted it but the catch, that I can’t turn it off decided it. 

No thanks dear friend, I am better off without it.

I would love to know what this cat is thinking.

Daily Prompt- Now? Later!

Posted on

Now? Later!- We all procrastinate. Website, magazine, knitting project, TV show, something else — what’s your favorite procrastination destination?


I procrastinate only when I have to write story for writing challenges. My destination is always TV shows. I may criticize it, get bored or sleep while watching it but run to it to get some excuse for not writing.. On one pretext or another like entertainment is also necessary, I may learn from them dialog writing or any other silly excuse will do. Then there are always realities shows, news channels or animal kingdom cookery shows or any educational show which make me believe I’m getting some knowledge which may help me in writing.

There are all sorts of excuse I will cook up to procrastinate and watch TV.


This TV show is very boring.
