A Drabble is an extremely short work of fiction exactly one hundred words in length. The purpose of the drabble is brevity and to express interesting and meaningful ideas in an extremely confined space.

“Last few days!” he thought, as he captured the reds and pinks of his life!

A life, he was sometimes proud of, but mostly full of regrets.

That night in a drunken state, he had raped his daughter! Her pleas and cries didn’t penetrate him. Later, the police woke him and he saw her lifeless body.

“How could I?” echoes incessantly in his ears, still.
Twelve years in this penitentiary, no peace, still.

He thought of his shining career… the fame, fans, money and everything it could buy.

He smiled sardonically, success has a thousand fathers. Defeat is an orphan.

PS : Here, Red signifies the evil and Pink symbolizes the appreciation, admiration,  health, love, joy in our lives.
