Curiosity Killed the Cat

I’m a petty thief, so I wander around the places where foreigners come to enjoy their vacations as they leave books, pen, towels and sunglasses etc., even wallets ,sometimes fogetfully or sometimes forcefully, if the situation demands.

 

When I saw a costly book and sunglasses at a very lonely place and no one around it , I knew someone had left in a hurry , I was more than happy as I just have to pick it up and go, no one was there so no dirty tricks , it was an easy job.

 

I  opened the book, just curious to know what it was all about but as soon as I put on the glasses I heard someone  whispering ‘Don’t read it, it is cursed.’

 

But I already had started reading it, it was very interesting and scary too, so I wanted to read more, suddenly I found my body distorting, I tried to shout, no sound came out and I turned in to the heap of sand.

 

Then I noticed the man looking at me pityingly, he whispered ‘ I tried to help you, but the problem is one can feel my presence only when one puts on the glasses, but then it’s too late’ , then we, both invisible to the world around us saw a man coming to pick up the book.

 

( Friends! I would love some feedback, criticism and pointing out my mistakes will help me to improve, so feel free to say anything.)

Brainwashed

He entered the biggest shopping mall of the town, he was looking epitome of courage, strength, and vigor but all diverted in the wrong path by .his mentors who brainwashed him into believing that all people who were from different religion, different ideology, believe in comfort and enjoyment were sinner and he will go to heaven by eliminating as much of them as possible.

He looked around cautiously satisfied himself that no one is taking any notice of him, and are busy in their own entertainment, shopping, and /or loitering around.

At first, he hesitated, this was the life he himself would have enjoyed but then remembered about his mission moreover he could not go back now, death was awaiting him either way.

Sometimes he thought of asking his mentors, why they themselves did not accomplish the mission and go to heaven but who he was to ask them when they have paid a hefty sum to his parents to buy his loyalty.

He summoned all his courage and triggered the invisible explosive device wrapped around his waist.

                                            FSF- Shattered Ego

My ego shattered just like the glass pieces lying on the floor.

I’m 60 years young man who looked quite young, well, in my opinion, so when I got befriended with a 20-year-old girl via Facebook, who was attracted by my funny and witty updates and comments,  I was thrilled.

She liked my wit and humor and I liked her charming jovial face, we started chatting daily and one day we decided to go out for a dinner.

At dinner everything went fine, she seemed completely comfortable in my company, enjoyed our conversation on different topics and laughed a lot at my jokes, we even enjoyed same food also.

While leaving she agreed for another date sometime next week. and said

 ‘ Thanks a lot for a wonderful time and the lovely dinner… UNCLE! ‘

Letters

With a determination to clean the clutter she entered  the storeroom , while arranging things she saw  the box containing old letters ,they always made her   forget everything and as always   took the box to her bedroom , scattered all the letters on the bed and started going through them.

She became nostalgic seeing the letters from parents, siblings, friends, children, relatives , all written with great emotion love and concern, some giving advice, some asking for advice, sharing happiness and sorrows.

Nowadays emails, e cards has taken place of hand written letters and the touch was missing, love and hugs on-line and on letters have a vast difference as when one wrote with pen on paper it carried the touch of the writer and when post-person  delivered it with a smile ,the day looked so bright.

She promised to herself that from today she will write at least one letter everyday. herself

She took out the long forgotten letter pad and started to write something but was surprised as  accustomed  to typing her fingers refused,  nowadays she used them only for signings some documents or forms and for everything  else she was herself  depended on computer.

Five Sentence Fiction – Determination

Lillie McFerrin Writes

DETERMINATION

563067_455511034519506_816605552_n

In his haste to get away from the shooter, the deer ran madly up the mountain without thinking where he was going.

Suddenly he found himself on the edge, where he could neither go forward nor come back as there was no space to turn around.

He panicked as now he was an easy target but very much determined not to show his fear, just waiting for the next move of the shooter.

He was not to know that the shooter wanted to shoot him not with the gun but with the camera.

The shooter looked at the brave soul, focused the camera, clicked and turned back reluctantly, knowing well that any attempt to help may frighten the poor creature.

Five Sentence Fiction – Malice

                         MALICE

He looked around the room with satisfaction, perfect with soft music, dim lights and a red heart-shaped seat between I and U, to show her there were no hard feelings in spite of the separation they agreed mutually though he couldn’t suppress a mischievous laugh.

She arrived on time, looked around, saw the arrangements and responded to his invitation for the last dance.

Then slowly he steered her towards the seat and was just about to make her sit,  she quickly switched their position and forced him on the seat.

Taken by surprise he could not respond and went down the hole with the seat.

She stepped back looking at the gap and smiled scornfully as if all those years living with him had not taught her enough about him.
