“Wasn’t this the liveliest place in town? There were so many times that we have seen couples waiting outside just to get a seat.”

When Alan and Roy had met in university, they would have laughed if someone would have said that they would co-own a restaurant many years down the line. But here they were, running one of the most successful eateries in the area.

But things had changed within weeks. The customers had disappeared. Home delivery wasn’t even half as successful as dining in. Most of the employees had been furloughed.

“Times can change fast.” Roy lamented wistfully.

Five Sentence Fiction: Yearn #AtoZChallenge

Five Sentence Fiction: Yearn

As soon as he had finished twelfth grade, he had left to pursue his graduation in the hallowed halls of Stanford University. While his parents knew that they would miss him after all these years, they also understood that it was important for their son to achieve his dreams and fulfill his ambitions.

While initially he was regular in his calls and messages, their interactions started to reduce as the months went by. Suffering from a chronic medical condition, his mom’s health started to get worse as she kept yearning for her son to come back.

But when he finally came, it was too little too late.

100 word fiction: Xenization #AtoZChallenge

100 word fiction: Xenization

Though he was literally on the top of Africa, he felt a certain sense of loneliness seeing the vast tracts of emptiness all around.

He loved exploring the world and had visited more than 120 countries. While he did encounter many strangers on such trips who eventually became friends, he had started to feel the need for a travel companion.

And now as he sat on Mount Kilimanjaro, he couldn’t help but wonder how different life would have been if he had instead taken up the software job he rejected in favour of this one. Had he made the right decision?

100 word fiction: View

“This is simply beautiful. All I can see is miles and miles of green. And to top it all, the colors of the sunset are gorgeous. Now I realize what I had missed for the last couple of months.”

After his operation, this was the first time Rick had been able to accompany Ron for their weekly hike up the hills around their neighbourhood.

A day job as the Founder and CEO of a small startup, Rick had quite a tough job extinguishing small fires day in and day out. This hike was his way to take in the nature.

It had been months since he had visited his family. The world got locked down as things got worse. Hundreds were dying and thousands were losing their jobs each day. Months later when some of the travel restrictions were lifted and he could take off for his hometown, he finally started to feel ‘normal’ again.

“That was the trip of a lifetime. We walked hand in hand like a lovestruck couple. We kissed under the Eiffel and had a lovely candle light dinner on the Seine Cruise.”

As she left the house for possibly the last time, she threw the iconic photograph which reminded them of their past. Theirs was a whirlwind romance as they met on a flight where she was the senior flight purser.

Within weeks, they were dating. Their relationship was doomed from the start as she dreamed of soaring in the skies while he expected her to be by his side.

Five Sentence Fiction: Quest #AtoZChallenge

Five Sentence Fiction: Quest

Though he had seen a lot in his decade long career as a lawyer, he had always been relentless in his quest for the truth. But this case was about to test his limits considering the fact that it involved key members of a political party.

While he pursued the case with his usual passion and ferociousness, the threats to his family were increasing by the day. The more dirt he found, the more trouble loomed on the horizon for his family and friends.

And then, on judgement day, all hell broke loose as he realized that he would suffer for his actions for the rest of his life.
