Transition of Thoughts

Weaving thoughts into words

Dread: My first solo e-book of short stories

I have always been very observant about whatever happens around us. A lot of my short stories and other forms of micro fiction over the years have always been based on what I have seen and what I feel may happen. The ability of humans to survive all odds and come up trumps is what keeps me going.

Each of the five stories in this e-book is based on my thoughts and experiences of the way humans survive in difficult situations.

There are so many of us who work late at night, don’t we? Haven’t we ever felt nervous on what could happen? A safari sounds like an experience of a lifetime. But what if things go awry? If you are on the way home and suddenly run into a tragedy happening around you, how would you react? Do you just run away? We all wait for that perfect holiday with our family. But what if the perfect holiday turns into a perfect nightmare?

100 word fiction: Edge of Universe

Edge of Universe

There’s a planet at the edge of the universe not unlike the earth in landscape and atmosphere. But its inhabitants are not.

They are robots who have been programmed to act and respond as per certain scenarios. While they are also programmed to emote like humans, their emotions seem anything but natural. Over the years, the amount of goods consumed on this planet has increased ten times.

There is speculation that the merchandise there is carried across the vast swath of their planet by planes just like on Earth. People remember to label it correctly so that its not lost.

Memories

Memories

If winter is death, surely, red-slashed autumn is the wound that brought it. It had been a strange year with the magnitude of issues. But he pursued whatever he could as vigorously as ever to add memories to his vault. He did rest and work and was now ready for the melt and freeze of winter.

Why did he walk out suddenly?

Why did he walk out suddenly?

He left.

It was an emergency.

Grey turns to blue

Grey turns to blue

Dusseldorf

It looks like a dull

and dreary day with the sun

lost amidst the clouds

Grey turns to blue

Dusseldorf

But then, grey turns to

blue and alleviates the

suffering of all

 

From almost being

underwater, the colours

have turned beautiful

 

It almost feels as

though the sunshine has devoured

the rain easily

Grey turns to blue

Paris

Sun vs Clouds

Sun vs Clouds

Sun and the clouds were having a tiff

with the sun trying to win the battle

Clouds weren’t ready to take it lying down

and both decided on a face-off

Eyes jealousy

Grey life

Pale heat

Pellucid quest

Solitudes wish

White Sands

White Sands

The white sands were a magnet for tourists,

while activities like paragliding and scuba diving were fun, hardihood was key

They loved lazing on the beach

and getting scuttlebutt from friends,

When they were bored

they acted as if all the information was recondite

Event of the Year

Event of the Year

It was an Annual Event but was it to celebrate over, he wasn’t sure.  In the beginning of the year, a lot of promises had been made which eventually turned out to be false. The employees had been taken for a ride to the extent that most believed that they would be rewarded and this had helped build sublime confidence in the team. But that wasn’t to be.

The peccadillos started piling up for the team month after month as the frustration began billowing up all around. The top two performers started to hammer tornillos into the wall to get rid of their anger. Finally they just walked out and ended up taking the willow medicine and using the pillow for a good night’s rest.

Betrayal

Betrayal

There was a lot that she was left to ponder upon as her friend who liked onomatopoeia betrayed her. He broke her trust by forcing a deal under duress. Despite being lucid enough, she was left penniless. Only divine intervention could save her.

100 word fiction: First day of summer

100 word fiction:

PHOTO PROMPT © C.E.Ayr

It had been a long and dull winter with a lot many snowstorms day in and day out. He was a perspicacious individual who always liked to be engaged in something or the other. For someone as professionally inclined as him, he had to find unorthodox ways to keep himself occupied.

And so at the first instance of summer, he took out his cycle. While he initially thought of the empty roads, he knew that cycling by the sea hearing the waves hit the shore felt blissful.

But as the rains came suddenly, he ran for cover under the gate.

Written for the photo prompt and you can read the other entries here.
