100 word fiction: Hunger for travel

PHOTO PROMPT © Roger Bultot

“You’ve got the moxie to flock to a crowded market in a city you’ve no idea about. Being how whimsical you are, sometimes I wonder if you would disappear without telling me only to reappear later.”

Ronald and Rochelle had travelled to South East Asia for a trip of a lifetime. While they commonly shared the love for travel, the differences began thereafter. While Ronald liked holidays to be laidback and loved staying away from crowds, Rochelle liked to explore as much as she could.

For her travelling and exploring was like a contest which she always needed to win.

For the love of nature

For the love of nature

The arboreal vegetation of this country is beautiful with its plethora of natural flora and fauna. The mountains provide the perfect backdrop for some excellent camera shots. And it’s quite perfect that it has been used to build an excellent brand for the country by so many travel bloggers around.

Being amidst nature is known to make so many buoyant including myself. And come to think of it, I had initially been told that it would be a mistake to come here as some tourists had found things to be quite difficult. It instead turned out to be what I would call – a ‘beautiful mistake’.

Zenith of Disaster

Zenith of Disaster

May didn’t augur well for him. While he was sure that his family was careful, he knew that the precautions followed by those who came home had gone wayward off late. Within days, the covid fatalities rose and as he lay in bed, his thoughts were interrupted as an auger was used to put his wife’s frame on the wall. He laid a lei on her grave next morning wondering how the pandemic had broken their union.

Uninterrupted career growth

Uninterrupted career growth

Pizzazz was an innate part of her personality. And this is why she was always in the frame whenever it came to any promotion in her organization. She went about her work without any haste striving for perfection in anything she did and thus was fortunate to get whatever she deserved.

Sanitation

Sanitation

The rat ran and he chased.

But the rat’s speed was so much so that he couldn’t keep pace. He had for long asked the authorities to ensure the cleanliness in his locality. It was all the more important for him as he ran a bakery which had a lot many visitors. And without proper sanitation there wouldn’t be any customers.

But the apathy of the authorities made the presence of rats and other such organisms inevitable. This apathy had affected his zest for his business. But he knew that he couldn’t take anymore of their drivel and needed to do what was right for the good of his business.

Pronounced guilty

Pronounced guilty

While his supporters were sympathetic at all the trouble he had to endure and gave him a shoulder to cry on, looking at the amount of drivel he had kept pedalling in the days prior, this all seemed inevitable. Though everyone was quite surprised at the speed in which the decision was made.

Keeping him in her memories

Keeping him in her memories

It had just been a while since he was gone. Her world revolved around him from morning to night. And now, he had just been cruelly taken away from her.

Her mind just kept wandering back to the last time she saw him. The day was as hectic as it could get and she had never ever been this busy. While she had been a tyro at the start, she had built a strong career in the decade she had worked at this organization. And things had just kept getting busier. She didn’t even have time to bid him goodbye while leaving home. Little did she know that that was the last time.

She kept reading about rebirth and also hoping for a message in a glass bottle from him indicating that he was fine.

She believed – If you are a dreamer, come in.

 

Note: The line – “If you are a dreamer, come in” is from Shel Silverstein’s poem Invitation as published in his book Where the Sidewalk Ends.
