Dreams in his eyes

Dreams in his eyes

Despite seeing a coating of slime on the

rock, he decided to sit and as he looked out

to the sea, all he could think of was the day

he had come to the city with a lot of

hopes and dreams in his eyes, though his knowledge

about the big bad world out there had been zilch.

55 word fiction: Farmer

Mikhail was delighted to see blue skies after such a long time. Being a simple farmer in a village far away in the mountains where the closest landmark was a nondescript post office, he was used to the slow life. Though he loved the place, there were days he struggled to keep his belly full.

This was the dream getaway for the two lovebirds. Lounging by the beach and getting some much needed tan, they couldn’t have asked for anything more on this honeymoon.

While Panama wasn’t their first choice, they eventually decided on it after glowing reviews from their friends. With some of the most beautiful beaches in the world where they could laze around all day long, they were having the best time of their lives.

But his boss’s arrival at the same hotel with his family in tow was a bolt from the blue. From that moment on, things weren’t the same.

“It’s been long since we saw the sunset by the beach. I miss walking with you hand-in-hand and hearing the waves hitting the shore.” Monica had taken the simple pleasures of life for granted.

“Honey, even I miss it too. We can only hope that things can get better soon.”

Like so many others, they were tired of having to stay home for so long. They longed for getting fresh air. They longed to see those sunsets together again. Monica longed to wear her gossamer-like dress and walk by the beach.

They knew that there were no shortcuts to happiness.

I want to forget those days but I can’t seem to get over her. It seems that she is still here with me walking hand in hand by the beach.

We happened to meet by chance in a restaurant where she had come for a business meeting. When we got talking, we realized that we had so much in common and a friendship quickly bloomed. Soon enough, we were besotted with each other so much so that I had surrendered myself to her charms.

But when she suddenly passed away, I was only left with our photographs and my loneliness.

100 word fiction: Road trip

They loved going on long drives from time to time. But the lockdown had put paid to all their plans of soaking themselves in the spring sunshine.

While they had regular day jobs, things had become difficult when both were stuck at home. Life wasn’t all hunky-dory as the disagreements had started to pile up.

While they kept searching for a platform to voice their frustrations, the lockdown was lifted only after a couple of months. When they finally did get a chance to go on a road trip again, they were just thankful that they could again experience nature.

They always loved going to beaches where there wasn’t a lot of crowd just so that they could relax in the calm and tranquil surroundings. They had grown weary to the point of being burnt out from their day jobs and finally when they did get a chance, they packed whatever they could and took off to Punta Cana.

With sunny climes, beautiful palm trees coupled with lovely sandy beaches, this was surely heaven on earth. While they spent their days walking hand in hand and sunbathing, their evenings were all about romantic dinners saying sweet nothings under the stars.

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?
