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.

100 word fiction: Egg festival

100 word fiction: Egg festival

“This is such a beautiful summer evening. It’s been so long since we have had sunlight like this as the winter this year seemed gloomier than ever before.”

The sun shone on the beautiful English countryside after what seemed like eternity. This had paved the way for the Annual Egg Festival. The festival was a chance to taste different egg recipes from people across the region and also an opportunity to meet and greet.

“Oh yes, it definitely is a lovely evening. With such a wide variety of dishes to taste, I am sure everyone is in for a treat.

“Hey, you there?” He had been knocking on her window for a while.

“What are you doing here? My parents could be here any minute.” She was shocked seeing him.

“I wanted to thank you.”

“For what?”

“For your lovely smile when you looked at me through the rear view mirror of your car. That was what I needed on my way to the interview.”

“You need to get going or we will be caught.”

And suddenly, he felt that he was gliding in the air only to fall on the ground with a thud as the ladder gave way.

100 word fiction: Avarice

100 word fiction: Avarice

As the money began flowing in, his avarice knew no bounds. Whether buying a fancy car or a plush bungalow, he lost himself in all the money. He had forgotten that life is about cherishing happy moments too. And happiness isn’t just defined by one’s bank balance.

While the material possessions began building up, his relationships with friends and family suffered. Emotions were generally not his thing and more so now.

He loved taking his cars out for a spin. But little did he know that much to his embarrassment, his Maybach would end up getting stuck in a pothole.

“Would you marry me?” She couldn’t believe her eyes. Just that morning they were thinking how would they plan their day after the hot air balloon ride. Little did she know what awaited her on the ride itself.

“Yes, I will.” Her happiness knew no bounds as now the surroundings looked even more beautiful from up above.

While they had been together for years, something always came up whenever it came to a long term commitment. But he had it planned out this time. And on the D-Day even the weather gods smiled as it wasn’t as windy as before.

“This hotel is beautiful. We took the right decision when we chose this for our holiday. It caters to tourists of all ages.”

They were a family of four residing far up north away from the hustle and bustle of city life. But they knew that they had to ring in the New Year 2020 with the entire family in the capital amidst all the music and dance.

The food was finger licking good. The hotel staff treated them like royalty. The children were having fun. Little did they know that this would be their last holiday for a long time.

100 word story: Life

100 word story: Life

They sat there on the rocky outcrop wondering how their lives had changed. They both had rough childhoods and their notion of happiness was just to make more money and move out of their dingy homes.

Little did they know that more than a decade later they would have a house by the sea and a flourishing business which would put them among the creme de la creme in the city.

It was an idea which was enough to change their world and of those around them. Their life had taken a 360-degree turn like a circle in a spiral.

100 word fiction: Sunset

100 word fiction: Sunset

“It’s been long since we saw the sunset by the beach. I miss walking with you hand-in-hand and hearing the waves hitting the shore.” Monica had taken the simple pleasures of life for granted.

“Honey, even I miss it too. We can only hope that things can get better soon.”

Like so many others, they were tired of having to stay home for so long. They longed for getting fresh air. They longed to see those sunsets together again. Monica longed to wear her gossamer-like dress and walk by the beach.

They knew that there were no shortcuts to happiness.

100 word fiction: Battle of the bands

100 word fiction: Battle of the bands

She had always been a fan of rock music from the time she could remember. Posters of Iron Maiden and Metallica adorned the walls of her room. Head banging to their songs made her feel free from all the stress she had seen at home.

Her parents were having a messy divorce after years of fighting with each other over the simplest of things. Theirs was a classic case of one-upmanship. This had always given her the blues.

Going to the battle of the bands during this period had been a cathartic experience helping stabilize her mental health as well.

100 word fiction: Lovestruck

100 word fiction: Lovestruck

I want to forget those days but I can’t seem to get over her. It seems that she is still here with me walking hand in hand by the beach.

We happened to meet by chance in a restaurant where she had come for a business meeting. When we got talking, we realized that we had so much in common and a friendship quickly bloomed. Soon enough, we were besotted with each other so much so that I had surrendered myself to her charms.

But when she suddenly passed away, I was only left with our photographs and my loneliness.
