“There is always the fear of the unknown. We are all wary of taking risks lest we fail and fall down by the wayside. But a life without challenges isn’t really a life worth living.

While success is always welcome, only when you fall do you truly realize what it takes to rise and shine all the way.”

Rakesh had failed to clear a number of job interviews in succession due to one reason or another. And when he finally did, the first thing which came to his mind was his father’s words which had shaped his approach in life.

“His movies have been doing really well off late. Looks like he has finally reached the zenith of his career.”

He had come to the city of dreams with just a little luggage and a lot of dreams in hand. Everyone advised him to go back since without a godfather he would just struggle and go nowhere. Struggle he did. It took him more than 10 years of running around, doing odd shows, theater and what not to finally bag his first big project.

And then, there was no looking back as his career got the momentum it was looking for.

100 word story: United

They were united in adversity...

They were united in adversity…

“All you think about is the value of the property you will get if any of the brothers separate. Aren’t you ashamed of yourself?”

Alok along with his 3 brothers had stayed in the locality for more than 50 years. The brothers were respected in the community and were known to be kind and helpful to all and sundry. Seeing them happy surely didn’t please a lot of people who tried unsuccessfully to separate them many a time.

Back home, while the wives often quarrelled on needless things, the brothers ensured that they always stood united in the face of any adversity.

“She is a lovely child. It’s so painful to even imagine that parents can treat their children in such a gruesome manner.”

Mohita’s smile and cheerfulness hid the pain and torture she had gone through during her childhood. From the time she was 4, her father’s advances towards her were full of perversion and voyeuristic pleasure. As the years went by, they soon evolved into full blown sexual assaults.

She never got to go to school or play with kids of her age. It was only when she escaped after a decade that she got to know about the world outside.

“I think we have lost our way in the jungles?” He sounded concerned considering that it was almost nightfall and they had a long distance to cover.

While on a backpacking tour with another group, the trio had decided to change course and do some adventure of their own. Rather than taking the road, they decided to try the hiking trails in the forest. But things started going downhill soon enough with tired legs and hungry stomachs leading to irritation amongst them.

With heavy rain and no network on their phones, a feeling of hopelessness was beginning to set in.

“We need to put an urgent stop to this. It’s not right for us to go on as our kids aren’t happy.”

While one was going through a painful divorce, the other had lost his partner to a painful death due to cancer. Both longed for unconditional love and care. What started off as a chance meeting in the court moved on to regular walks in the garden hand in hand all day. They discussed their happiness, their sadness, their dreams and more.

But as soon as their kids found out their story, their dream world was shattered to pieces.

100 word fiction – Anger #AtoZChallenge

Anger

Anger

“Those who get angry are the ones who love you the most.” She had always heard this advice from her loved ones. But there was only so much that she could bear.

The marks on her body and soul were a true reflection of the torture and pain he had inflicted upon her. From failed business deals to fights between friends; from knowing about her numerous guy friends to her frequent refusal for sex, she ended up bearing the brunt of his anger.

What started off as a match made in heaven truly ended as a match made in hell.

100 word fiction: The swamp

By the river

PHOTO PROMPT © Erin Leary

It was a gloomy day with ominous clouds lining up the horizon as far as the eyes could see. But the cool breeze and the tranquil surroundings around Lake Manny were enough for the Smith’s to plan a family’s day out.

Good food, swimming, games with the kids and more importantly, a nice little walk on the banks of the lake, this was the perfect way to relax. But the animals in the swamp had other plans up their sleeve.

Before the parents could even realize, the kids had disappeared. It seemed as though the swamp had gobbled them up.

As she looked out of the window, she dreamed of a day when she would be free from the pain he had inflicted upon her for years.

When children feel scared, they run to their parents for support and care. But what if parents themselves are the source of fear? Anna’s father had tortured her sexually and psychologically for years on end after her mother had passed away in tragic circumstances.

If that wasn’t enough, he also hit her whenever he could, made her do all the household chores and locked her up within the four walls of the house.

Flight to disaster

Their flock had been suddenly attacked by a herd of dogs. Though she flew away almost immediately to escape the danger, she didn’t realize that other dangers lurked in the vicinity.

In the ensuing melee, she was unable to find the way back to her flock, and thus began calling out for help.

But before she could realize what was happening, she hit the side of a building and fell on the ground. Though she did survive, her injuries were survive and without urgent medical support, death was staring at her in the face. Her flight had ended in disaster.
