The couple had finally decided to leave the city after dilly-dallying for months. While going to a smaller city meant lesser pay, they knew that the benefits outweighed the negatives.

Over the years, they had accumulated many things which had worn out and needed to be thrown away. But now the movers and packers weren’t doing a great job leaving the stuff lying on the road rather than in the bin.

They were looking forward to a life far away from the din of city life amidst the forests and next to the lake with the zephyr hitting their faces.

100 word fiction: City goes dark

100 word fiction: City goes dark

One by one the lights of the city block winked out, the dark coming ever closer. The cyclone had been barreling towards the city for the last couple of days and now that it was almost on the doorstep, the electricity had been cut off to avoid any unforeseen incidents.

The people had been exhausted as there had been one tragedy after another so much so that their being stuck home felt like being in a cage. While help was on the way, they felt that their lives were in a constant state of flux from one disaster to another.

“You have such good taste when it comes to decorating your house. I love the colours.”

Ann and Jessica had been the best of friends since Ann shifted into the neighbourhood a couple of months ago. While they happened to meet by chance, they hit it off almost immediately with their shared interests in interior designing and fashion.

Ann loved travelling and made sure to collect at least one souvenir from every place she visited. She was also looking for some handmade items to complete the look of her home and Jessica knew the perfect place which would have them.

“Haven’t you felt eerie around that house?”

“Everytime I pass by the place, I feel a certain sense of dread. While the lights are always on and the gardens manicured quite well, I have never seen anyone around.

“Whoa!” He seemed horror struck.

The two friends had just shifted to the locality and found the things happening in the house quite mysterious.

“The other day I had to pause near the house for some work and I actually felt someone brush past me. But when I looked around, there was no one. It was quite a test of my character.”

“Is it important to go to Hollywood studios now?”

“Yeah, I want to know how it feels to be in a crowded place.” Rod looked at me with complete seriousness.

“Honestly, I have had enough of your facetious remarks. I don’t want to vellicate being in a crowded place.”

“Hey you know I was kidding, don’t you? It’s just that am tired of being locked up and am experiencing fernweh. We haven’t been anywhere in a long time and it’s honestly getting frustrating.”

“I can understand how you feel. But we still need to give it a bit more time.

100 word fiction: Inevitable

As the number of coronavirus cases and deaths passed one grim milestone after another, he felt that God had only been delaying the inevitable as far as his and his family’s health was concerned.

While he always adhered to all the regulations as specified by the health authorities, he also knew that life couldn’t be locked down forever. Humans are social animals after all.

Even after things opened up, he avoided the busy areas like restaurants, theaters and malls. But he did eventually go to open spaces like parks and beaches to get his moiety of happiness and fresh air.

The train travelled through a variety of exotic locales during the numerous trips it took for taking different goods from one place to another.

“We should wait until the storm passes by.”

“I think it’s perfectly fine as I am sure that there wouldn’t be any water logging on the tracks.”

“You seem happy under your umbrella. But I doubt the train agrees with you.”

Ronald and Martin had driven the freight train across the length and breadth of the country for years. While Martin was used to many escapades in his life, for Ronald it was always safety first.

100 word fiction: Glass painting

100 word fiction: Glass painting

She always wanted to design the interiors of her house. And so she made sure that she got all the right furniture, showpieces and more. Playing with different colours came to her quite naturally and she wanted to give the house a bright outlook.

Once she was done, she began thinking about the windows. While glass painting had been a hobby, she hadn’t done it in more than a decade. But her husband encouraged her saying that there was no better time to revisit it again.

And so she got to work. Within days, her labour of love was ready.

“There was a time when I used to keep telling you to follow your passion. But you were so lazy that you always had a million excuses ready. And look at you today. You can’t stop painting, can you?”

“Have you seen the doors this morning?” He looked at her expectantly.

“What? Don’t tell me you painted the doors. Did you?” Marlin was stunned and walked over to see the doors of the house painted dark brown.

Josh had made good use of the lockdown by making sure he painted everything from canvases to walls; from doors to even hankies.

The world watched in horror as the number of bodies piled up and the hospitals began reaching their peak capacity. Though he did vacillate between staying put or going back to his family, he finally decided the latter.

As was customary by now, he had to quarantine himself at home for a period of two weeks. While it did initially feel quite ridiculous to not even be able to hug his own family, he knew that it was only a matter of time.

Meanwhile, the gates were kept locked and any orders were picked up when no one was around.
