55 word fiction: Dock

His work involved loading and unloading the goods arriving at the dock day in and day out. While the work was indeed back-breaking, he always had the extra motivation as he felt that he was doing all he could to ensure the public was fully stocked up whether in natural disasters or during a lockdown.

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.

She keenly watched the spider struggle to get hold of the cockroach which it had preyed upon. Seeing this, her mind wandered towards the struggle she had to encounter daily to get hold of the rations thrown by the army from the numerous helicopters circling above them.

Floods had ravaged almost the entire state leaving hundreds dead and thousands homeless without food, shelter and clean drinking water. While the government had mobilized emergency services to help the people in need, her family had to fight daily with numerous others to get hold of one wholesome meal to satisfy their hunger.
