100 word fiction: Her specs

Her specs

“I feel as though I have got a new life with these specs post my surgery. There was a time when I struggled to open my eyes under normal light. My eyes watered excessively due to the dryness in the atmosphere.”

Despite having a caring family and achieving a lot in her career, Sarah seemed perennially unhappy. Her eye condition had deteriorated so much so that it had started affecting her daily life.

The ophthalmologist suggested that an urgent surgery was the only option followed by getting the right kind of specs. And the rest as they say is history.

100 word fiction: Her new glasses

Her new glasses

“I have been looking for a good pair of glasses since a long time. The last pair I had was my favourite. But when it accidently broke apart due to my carelessness, I was devastated.”

Anita had high myopia and needed the right kind of glasses to achieve her dream of becoming a pilot.

During childhood, she had suffered a lot from dryness of the eyes. This affected her mentally and psychologically during her school and university days. But as the years passed by, she was all the more determined.

“Let me take a selfie to see how I look.”

100 word fiction: The plant on the bookshelf

Ronnie had a penchant for books of any kind be it fiction or non-fiction. It was only recently that he had set up his own little library.

When his father came to see his world of books, he was surprised as to what he encountered.

“That plant seems to be growing in such a bizarre way. Why don’t you cut it off? It makes your room look awful.”

“The plant is there for a reason. It’s growth in different directions is an indicator of the 360 degree learning one could have reading the varied set of books which adorn my bookshelf.”

“Hey Judy, what are you waiting for? Just close your eyes and take the leap of faith into the water.” She remembered her coach’s words from a few years ago.

Suffering from a weak heart and a host of other medical conditions over the years, Judy had given up hope of living a normal life let alone dream of getting into the swimming pool.

But with her steely determination, support from her family and her team of doctors, she began her process of recovery so much so that she could go on to represent her state at the Swimming Championships.

The experiment

“God knows what do you do sitting in that bloody stone house all day long. I am tired of you not having any time for us.”

“Whatever I am doing is only to see you guys happy.”

“Oh really? So why don’t you tell me? Why are you so secretive?”

“I have told you numerous times that you will get to know when you have to. Why do you keep nagging me all the time.”

And she walked off in a huff. Little did Karen know that Rick was planning an experiment that was going to change their lives forever.

“It’s such a pleasure living in a house where everyone takes care of the plants as if their life depends on it. Though we are nothing more than a showpiece sitting in this bowl, we are given water and nutrients on a daily basis.”

“I completely agree. This is surely so much better than where I lived previously. My caretaker rarely watered me so much so that I had lost all my energy and was quite literally on the verge of death.”

The two leaves were lost in thoughts of their own as the time for some food was nigh.

100 word fiction: Nostalgia

100 word fiction: Nostalgia

“After days of rain, it’s a delight to see the sun shining in all its glory. It would have been beautiful if we had our children with us today.” Gloria couldn’t help but remember the days gone by.

The Robinson’s always made it a point to spend their weekends in their garden. While the children played on the rides, the parents discussed about everything under the sun. It was a lovely way for the family to bond together.

Once the children left for university and then got jobs, the times spent in the garden became nothing but a distant memory.

100 word fiction: Help

100 word fiction: Help

“Nick, push it up. Push it way up”

“I am trying Ben. But this damn thing isn’t responding.”

The cockpit was a cacophony of alarms and it was extremely difficult for the pilots to hear each other as the twin engine jet spiraled out of control and headed straight for the neighborhood of Rodwood.

Luckily, the pilots found a road to land the plane. But it still clipped a few light poles and cars finally coming to rest near the mayor’s home. Almost immediately, the air was filled with cries for help with passengers staggering out of the burning wreckage.

“Don’t go roaming near those gates.” Mrs Smith always asked her kids to stay away from the compound gates beyond which lay the abandoned building. It would have been an architectural masterpiece when it was constructed.

But today, it looked dilapidated from years of neglect. Legend has it that any family which came to stay left in the first week itself apparently due to the strange experiences each of them had.

Though no one had stayed there for years, the lights were always switched on at night and the garden was regularly manicured despite the absence of any visible staff.

The wax figures

A wax museum in the sleepy town of Troddle had risen to prominence courtesy George, one of it’s residents. His museum had figures of famous people from around the town and the cities nearby.

His work was so good that almost all the wax figures actually seemed like real people.

But no one ever knew the secret of his work until the death of his fiancee opened a can of worms.

The police who were already on the search for a number of abductions found that George killed people for money and then turned their dead bodies into wax figures.
