FRIDAY FICTIONEERS- 29 November 2013- Pauper’s Delight

Writing a story in 100 words is very difficult for me but   its a very good exercise for brain. After editing a lot it comes to 107 words. I don’t know how it stands.  I would love criticism of any kind friends.

Pauper’s Delight

It was that kind of posh restaurant on water ,which,  a pauper like me can’t even  dream of entering it.

Then a board with  ‘ Pauper’s delight – Free food ‘  written on it caught my attention.   Perhaps a   tycoon   has opened it  to book a seat in the heaven , ‘ why deprive him of that’  I  thought  and sat in the corner seat near  the railing enjoying the  sea view.

Waiter  came and kept some delicious dishes and a bell written ‘call me ‘ on it in front of me.

After savoring the food I rang the bell. Suddenly  a shark raised its head near me .

‘ We call him Pauper lovingly’ ‘ the waiter  said.

‘ Nothing comes for free man ! ‘ was my last thought .

About Indira

I knew all along that life is about, love, compassion, compatibility and friendship, but now I have discovered that life is also about sharing thought, encouraging others and getting encouraged. So here I am with my blogs about life, friendship, love, and whatever life has taught me.

  4. Dear Indira,

    Loved this humorous tale. I loved the line “Perhaps a tycoon has opened it to book a seat in the heaven…”
    On a grammatical note I think the “waiter brought” rather than the “waiter kept” makes more sense. Aside from that small issue, A Pauper’s Delight was this reader’s delight.

    Shalom,
