“You’ve got the moxie to flock to a crowded market in a city you’ve no idea about. Being how whimsical you are, sometimes I wonder if you would disappear without telling me only to reappear later.”

Ronald and Rochelle had travelled to South East Asia for a trip of a lifetime. While they commonly shared the love for travel, the differences began thereafter. While Ronald liked holidays to be laidback and loved staying away from crowds, Rochelle liked to explore as much as she could.

For her travelling and exploring was like a contest which she always needed to win.

It had just been few minutes since the trailer had swerved to avoid hitting a car from the opposite side and then eventually become stuck due to the load. But the traffic pile-up had begun.

Being one of the main roads in the city, almost everyone had to take it every morning for work. And now with a trailer blocking the entire road, people were stuck in either direction.

Inside the trailer –

“We need to move to the side some way or another.”

“I have called the police for help.”

“I hope they get here before all hell breaks loose.”

They sat on their chairs wondering how it had all become s0 vacant.

“Previously, we used to have so many customers that we didn’t have enough staff to meet their needs. But all that feels so far away. Despite our scrupulous attention to detail when it comes to sanitation, the numbers haven’t increased.”

Existential Crisis

As another day came to an end with a beautiful sunset looking over the sea, they knew that the pandemic had turned their life upside down.

Existential Crisis

In times of lockdowns, their home far away seemed like quite a lonely place to be in.

“It has been a tough year for everyone. As we begin this new year, we all hope and pray that the next one will be better in every sense of the word.”

As the residents of the city bid goodbye to 2020 with a short speech by the mayor, there was optimism in the air. As people lit candles with messages of hope, there was relief more than elation at seeing the back of a year which almost everyone wanted to forget.

They felt that the beginning of a new year brought a ray of hope for mankind to start afresh.

Museum's secret

“Wow! This is amazing. Who would have known that this old well still had so much water to offer.”

The history museum had a number of artifacts and exhibits for people to admire. But the well was its most visited site especially for those who were interested to see how challenging it was to get water during the historical ages.

While they had heard and felt that there was some water down below, they were never sure without any specific proof to go by. This was until the day they finally struck gold when they heard a gush of water.

100 word fiction: Going towards emptiness

With her camera in tow, she was ready to go out to photograph how deserted the city became every night. As she stepped out of her house, it was already late afternoon.

The seeds which she had sowed quite a while back had given way to a small plant with many flowers.

While nature was going on as per its usual course, all the markets, roads, restaurants and more came to a standstill every night as a lockdown had been enforced.

Being the journalist she was, it was her job to photograph the emptiness all around. It was quite bizarre.

“Ahh, these biscuits look lovely! It’s like the perfect gift for Easter. Thanks so much. My family would love them. I would surely decorate these along with a note full of love.”

Annie always enjoyed seeing her customers smile. Whether it was Easter or Christmas, she had not let the pandemic dampen the enthusiasm of her customers.

In times of crisis like these, she knew that her sweets would coincide with the arrival of joy and music in people’s lives.

After she was done for the day, she loved sitting at the lonely chair amongst the trees behind her house.

A celebration..

100 word fiction: Summer vs Winter

100 word fiction: Summer vs Winter

It was a warm summer day with brilliant sunshine. With the temperature in the early 20s, it was the sort of the day which one would spend out in the open as much as possible. He was used to the long and cold winters and therefore seeing the sun was a time to rejoice, an emotion he longed for.

As he walked down the stairs to tend to his fields, he couldn’t help but remember how white everything looked during winter. At times, the heavy snowfall would make things quite dangerous. And then, he would covet the warmth of summer.

100 word fiction: The Shell Collector

The Shell Collector

Tamsin’s heart drummed frantically as she tore through her pack, her books, and the messy desk– where was it?!

It had been over a week since since she visited the nearby beach after her interview. She always went there in search of peace and calm and was resolute in her quest to find it. She found it the perfect place where she could simplify all the challenges of her life just through introspection.

Everytime she went, she collected a few shells and brought them home keeping them on her shelf. But this time, she seemed to have misplaced her collection.

100 word fiction: Remembrance

He stood there looking at their photos in remembrance of the times they spent together. While she was a scalawag of some sort, their friendship hit it off.

Though they did have their fights and arguments where she ended up with a moue of disdain, they laughed it off together at the end of the day.

Whether it was the fall season or Christmas, they had always spent a lot of time with each other during festive occasions.

But once she was married, their conversations reduced drastically so much so that he was left wondering on the way life changed.
