Trains always remind me of my very affectionate 6 years old brother, (suffering from Down’s syndrome), how he loved to play train. He himself would become an engine, tie me and brother with a rope and try to pull us. The moment he whistled we would go in a different direction making it difficult for him.
He will argue ‘bogies should go with the engine.’
‘And engine should go with the driver and driver should go with the passengers’ we will chide.
The end was always a mock fight with we huddled kicking each other until mother’s intervention.
Only memories remain.
word count- 101
Forlorn grandmother sitting in a chair at old age home suddenly smiles, visualizing her two grandchildren, a boy and a girl playing their favorite game ‘ Mermaids in trouble’.
They took all the cushions and hid under them, s if trapped inside the sea reefs, while she, forced by them to join the game, wearing a sea diver’s mask pretended to save them.
Their favorite part was her feigning that the damn mask obstructed her view, run here and there clumsily and fall on them; they will roll over each other on the floor laughing hysterically.
How she longs for those days.
