100 word fiction: Birdie #AtoZChallenge

100 word story: Birdie

As she sat there looking at the young lady furiously typing away on her keyboard, the birdie kept wondering as to how the world had changed in matter of weeks.

She hadn’t experienced cleaner air in her entire lifetime. With the absence of vehicles on the road and aeroplanes in the sky, there was no noise to contend with whatsoever. It was so unusually quiet that she could do whatever she wanted anywhere without having to fly away scared.

Just as she was lost in her wistful thoughts, the lady gave her some food. She had missed this a lot.

Rock-n-Rogers 50s Diner was one of the most happening hotspots on the Interstate highway. While at face value it was simply a restaurant serving some of the best chicken wings and steaks in town, it surely had an emotional connect with almost anyone you asked.

Whether you had gone through a breakup, had a date or just wanted to relax and have some delicious food, this was the place to be.

You could rarely find people who were on the Interstate but didn’t stop at 50s Diner at least once. to satisfy their cravings and have an experience to remember.

It had been a harsh summer without the usual amounts of rain or snow. The trees in the park nearby seemed like they were crying out for water and care.

The birds on the other hand found some to drink from the small fountain in the center of the park while they flew from one place to another amidst their search.

The fountain was itself devoid of much of its water due to water conservation efforts by the authorities. But whatever remained, it was enough to quench the thirst of these creatures and acted as the perfect elixir of life.

They said that it was coming but not many believed them. They warned that while the symptoms started with a simple cough and cold, they weren’t able to cure the patients using regular medication. It all seemed like a mystery.

And then, the floodgates opened. With businesses and transportation closed and everyone prevented from going outside home except to buy groceries when needed, the city effectively went into an unprecedented lockdown.

Masks became commonplace as the health officials and volunteers went into overdrive. There were mandatory health checks at every nook and corner of the city. The outbreak had begun.

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.

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.”

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.
