100 word fiction: Fall colours in a pandemic

100 word fiction: Fall colours in a pandemic

It was that time of the year when everything around had become so colourful. The green had turned into shades of yellow, orange and red. But then, there was something which hadn’t really changed too much.

While the year had started out on a promising note for Janet with her new job and finding the love of her life, things had quickly turned downhill from the time the pandemic struck. She lost her job and her sanity as the savings dried up.

As the months went by, she was forced to depend on others for even the most basic needs.

    Life does go downhill sometimes when we least expect it to. I have a feeling she will find a way. We all do, don’t we.

      I am sure we will find a way. Humans have been able to adapt in various ways during the last few months of lockdown.

  2. A tough year for many, I imagine a lot of hopeful dreams and fresh starts have come crashing to a stop.

      Sad but true :(. But I do believe that we all will come out of this sooner rather than later. There are so many stories of resilience and hope which have come out of this crisis.

  3. To be forced to depend on others becomes a test of those others

  4. A tale many can relate to I’m sure.

    Here’s mine!

  5. She’ll figure it out…she’s gotten this far…a lovely piece.

      Thanks :). She still has hope that things will get better eventually.

  6. I think you tell a story many can relate to.

  7. Tough times for everyone right now, each affected in their own different ways.

      Tough times for everyone indeed. I guess each of us has our own way we are trying to adapt to this crisis.

  8. Very frightening scenario, and one which I’m sure has happened more than we realize.

  9. I enjoyed this. Well done.

  10. I love this phrase “lost her job and her sanity.” Hope things get better for her.

      Thanks Anne :). Hope so too. Sadly, I guess so many like her are just living on hope and prayers these days. Hope they find the strength to keep going on!
