Five Sentence Fiction – Engulf



I was so immersed in my thoughts of loneliness, of suffering, of suicidal thoughts, oblivious to the sea waves trying to engulf me  that I didn’t notice the 14 years boy  coming and sitting by me until he said,

‘ The world is so cruel to people like us neither male nor female, we are also creation of God but no education, no employment, no one likes to give us even household jobs, either we have to dance at weddings or on childbirth or beg and without money you can’t survive so I have come here to  drown myself in the sea like you.’

I looked at his misery ridden face and suddenly an idea crossed my mind.

‘Why not come with me, I’ll adopt you, give you education and we will take care of each other.

‘Let’s go there is so much legal work to do.’

Holding hands we retreated, life has given us a purpose to survive.





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.
