Five Sentence Fiction – Companion

Someone said ” Truth is stranger than fiction” methinks funny and lovely also.

Companion

He was my companion just for three years and in three years he taught me a lot of things, such as humor, selfless love, how to get whatever he wanted without even muttering a word and how to listen patiently before succumbing suddenly to his undiagnosed illness.

Once when he was one year old, he came running to me, kept his head on my stomach and started whining, I patted him with love and scratched his ears thinking that he was missing me and needs a little pampering.

Just then my maid servant came running furiously, she asked me not to pamper the scoundrel as he had pulled down my mother’s freshly washed white sari and was stamping on it with muddy feet and now the cunning fellow has the guts to seek your sympathy as he was sure to get a smack from her.

The reason behind this was that he got a scolding from my mother for digging out all the newly planted saplings while playing in the garden and was warned not to enter the garden again.

My adorable dog Kutkut  showed his displeasure in this way.

Suggestion

 

This was the tenth time she touched each one of the lamp, rubbing them expectantly.

Nothing happened. Not a single thought; let alone a story came to her mind.

Shopkeeper inquired curiously, whether she was looking for some magic lamp.

At first, she denied but then confessed that she was supposed to write a story on lamps but was unable to do.

‘Buy one, take home and sit staring at it, it may help.’ he suggested.

‘Will it work?’ she asked.

‘Yes, it always works for me.’

‘You come up with a story?’

‘No, it helps me sell one lamp.’

Justification

We human beings are very clever.

We always find an excuse to justify what we love to do.

Bobby loved non-vegetarian food.

He loved birds also and started working for The Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) organization, but now he found it difficult to eat fresh meat, as he could not stand killing animal by himself or for his sake.

Therefore, instead of becoming a vegetarian, he started taking frozen meat, though outwardly feeling guilty, on the pretext that he was not involved in the killing process and once when it is killed, why waste it.

Sparks

It all started with a playful discussion over future planning.

They were both working couple so she told him that when they will have a child she would keep it with her mom so she does not have to leave the job.

‘Nice, so she can raise one more brat like you.’ It was just a slip of the tongue, which he regretted but the harm was done.

There was friction, spark, firework, storm and then heavy rains.

Looking around the room after aftermath, they both started laughing, she has not even conceived yet.

Daily Prompt: Quirk of Habit

Daily Prompt: Quirk of Habit

As the saying goes ‘ A chronic patient is a half doctor’ it fits me and this was my quirky habit to come up with a medicine every time someone complains of his/her problem or sickness to me. Headaches? Take this. Stomach upset?  Take this.   Apart from being a chronic patient, my maternal uncle and aunt both were Ayurvedic Doctors. I have studied a lot of books on Homeopathy so my mind was full of medicines all the time. Actually people tell you about their problems   just to share, not for advice or preaching, and here I was searching for  the root cause of their problem and what they should do or not do. I know it was annoying but I couldn’t stop myself.

Youngsters hated this habit but my mother ,my in-laws and few friends were pleased with me as they thought that I listen to their woes seriously and every time came up with a solution and that was my only solace.  since long I have corrected myself and never give advice until I’m asked for.
