Ashamed

Ashamed

Dominic bowed his head to hide his face. He felt ashamed of steps he took despite attempts to proclaim new beginnings.

When asked to save, he decided to spend. While others called him shallow due to his love for money, he considered it a deep paradox that having so much he couldn’t spend.

Eventually, it was too late as his temerity gave way to his shady dealings which marked his end.

Misanthrope

Misanthrope

He always loved seeing the stars from his telescope. While the others would ramble around him about anything and everything under the sun, he would zone out and think about ways to reach the stars. For him it was never about the money or the fame.

All he wanted was to be happy. There were times when he was put in a spot as people around him started calling him a misanthrope. But he didn’t bother one bit and used to mention that if it were him, he would spend few years of his life meditating in an antre.

100 word fiction: Avarice

100 word fiction: Avarice

As the money began flowing in, his avarice knew no bounds. Whether buying a fancy car or a plush bungalow, he lost himself in all the money. He had forgotten that life is about cherishing happy moments too. And happiness isn’t just defined by one’s bank balance.

While the material possessions began building up, his relationships with friends and family suffered. Emotions were generally not his thing and more so now.

He loved taking his cars out for a spin. But little did he know that much to his embarrassment, his Maybach would end up getting stuck in a pothole.
