100 word fiction: The locked room..

The purple door

The room had been locked for years. Rachel had heard stories about her aunt’s ghost lurking behind those doors. This aunt had failed in love and out of despair, she committed suicide.

Rachel didn’t believe all this until one evening when she heard footsteps from the room. They got louder and louder and finally someone began banging the door from inside amidst cries for help. Even before she could react, the door was thrown open.

Almost immediately, Rachel got up sweating profusely. It was 3am and she looked out only to see the room locked as before. Was she dreaming?

The sound of the earth shaking was still vivid in his memory. He only had seconds to react and take his family along with himself out to safety. The 6.5 magnitude temblor at 2:57am had jolted the entire city out from it’s slumber.

The continuous aftershocks in the next few days ensured that almost everyone was forced to sleep under the open sky.

On returning back after a couple of weeks, he burst into tears seeing his once beautiful house.

“I spent my entire life’s earning to build this abode only for it to be destroyed by an act of God!”

The wall had been the source of bloodshed and anger between the two nations for years.

It had split families apart on either side.

It had been witness to umpteen deaths, destruction and unprovoked firing resulting in a high number of casualties in different incidents.

The people on either side of the wall had different beliefs, virtues and principles so much so that the two nations were as different as chalk and cheese in their foreign policy matters, economy and global standing.

The Korean wall was successful in splitting the North and South at both a physical and people-to-people level.

“You weren’t able to score a run in today’s game. Your technique against the moving ball seemed quite awful.”

“While I accept my mistakes in today’s game, I see it as an opportunity to improve the next time around.”

The southpaw had a spectacular introduction into cricket a few years ago with a swashbuckling century. He had subsequently gone on to score runs against a variety of opposition.

Having been there and done that, he knew that crests and troughs were part of any cricketer’s job. And he would get out of the run scoring drought sooner rather than later.

“I guess the guys at the meteorological observatory were finally right this time. The storm seems to have begun after all.”

“Thanks son for buying all the groceries yesterday evening. Looks like we are in for the long haul this weekend.”

Just as the mother and son were discussing the incoming hurricane, the electricity went off. The Smith’s had prepared for hurricanes for years but this time it seemed for real.

They lit up the two oil lamps and got back to setting the house in order. They didn’t want to be left red faced in terms of their preparedness.

“There is always the fear of the unknown. We are all wary of taking risks lest we fail and fall down by the wayside. But a life without challenges isn’t really a life worth living.

While success is always welcome, only when you fall do you truly realize what it takes to rise and shine all the way.”

Rakesh had failed to clear a number of job interviews in succession due to one reason or another. And when he finally did, the first thing which came to his mind was his father’s words which had shaped his approach in life.

“His movies have been doing really well off late. Looks like he has finally reached the zenith of his career.”

He had come to the city of dreams with just a little luggage and a lot of dreams in hand. Everyone advised him to go back since without a godfather he would just struggle and go nowhere. Struggle he did. It took him more than 10 years of running around, doing odd shows, theater and what not to finally bag his first big project.

And then, there was no looking back as his career got the momentum it was looking for.

100 word story: United

They were united in adversity...

“All you think about is the value of the property you will get if any of the brothers separate. Aren’t you ashamed of yourself?”

Alok along with his 3 brothers had stayed in the locality for more than 50 years. The brothers were respected in the community and were known to be kind and helpful to all and sundry. Seeing them happy surely didn’t please a lot of people who tried unsuccessfully to separate them many a time.

Back home, while the wives often quarrelled on needless things, the brothers ensured that they always stood united in the face of any adversity.

100 word fiction: Painful #AtoZChallenge

“She is a lovely child. It’s so painful to even imagine that parents can treat their children in such a gruesome manner.”

Mohita’s smile and cheerfulness hid the pain and torture she had gone through during her childhood. From the time she was 4, her father’s advances towards her were full of perversion and voyeuristic pleasure. As the years went by, they soon evolved into full blown sexual assaults.

She never got to go to school or play with kids of her age. It was only when she escaped after a decade that she got to know about the world outside.

“I think we have lost our way in the jungles?” He sounded concerned considering that it was almost nightfall and they had a long distance to cover.

While on a backpacking tour with another group, the trio had decided to change course and do some adventure of their own. Rather than taking the road, they decided to try the hiking trails in the forest. But things started going downhill soon enough with tired legs and hungry stomachs leading to irritation amongst them.

With heavy rain and no network on their phones, a feeling of hopelessness was beginning to set in.
