Weekly Writing Challenge
Now writing prose will be a completely new thing for me, also I could never write about myself. Its going a tough challenge for me, but a challenge is a challenge so here is my first attempt at prose
One evening I was all alone, children gone to play with their friends and my husband still at work place.
I was roaming in my garden. After some time I went to a nearby pillar with a grape-vine surrounding it.
I kept my hand on the pillar. After few seconds suddenly my sixth sense alerted me. I had an eerie feeling. There was stillness in the atmosphere, everything was very quiet. Someone was watching me. If someone watches you intensely, you will find that your sixth sense will alert you.
I was not able to breathe, my heart fluttering badly. I don’t believe in ghosts or demons but for a second I thought what if all that is true. I could not move myself.
Slowly I turned my head looked towards my hand; just few inches away two small frightened eyes were watching me. I discovered that it was a big fat green caterpillar. I felt ashamed of my behaving so childishly. Actually the It was more frightened than me.
Slowly I moved away from it leaving it to enjoy its meal.
Even after 35 years I can still recall those intense eyes, still I get nervous just by thinking of it.
Someone of you must have gone through this kind of experience. Please do tell me. I would love that.
