Snitch #AtoZChallenge @AprilA2Z

55 Fiction

I appear relaxed, but inside I’m all nerves as I walk out the door.

Without looking back, I then break into a run.

A hand stops me.

“You should be in better shape before doing this”, the guard sniggers while pulling the slimming-belt covering my tummy.

“Why do you think I took it”, I remark.

Ravaged #AtoZChallenge @AprilA2Z

55 Fiction

For a long time, she tosses and turns, the creak of bed springs giving her company in the silence of the night.

Her thoughts race and dart back and forth dragging her into the dark rooms of her mind.

All she wishes for is some undisturbed sleep.

But looks like he raped her head too.

Questionable! #AtoZChallenge @AprilA2Z

55 Fiction

Ordinary people believe only in the possible.

Extraordinary people visualize not what is possible or probable, but rather what’s impossible.

And by visualizing the impossible, they begin to see it as possible

And I am that ordinary person who believes in the impossible.

Come and try the amazing potions I serve! Guaranteed to cure everything!

A job’s what you do, when you’re told what to do.

Your art is what you do, when no one can tell you how to do it. Your art is taking ownership and adding value to your job.

So, go and do your job artfully.

Remember, you can’t leave. You’ve been bought and paid for.

There’s something comforting about strangers in a train.

You can talk to them for hours, share your deepest secrets and still not know their names.

I dozed off, remembering our chats over tea and food.

I woke up in unfamiliar surroundings with a searing pain as my fingers traced the sabre slice across my abdomen.

Not Done! #AtoZChallenge @AprilA2Z

55 Fiction

Our mother’s home was a hospital room.

Her chronic illness and failing memory made us take that hard step.

The last few months saw us fluctuating between hope and despair.

We were prepared for a call from the hospital stating the inevitable.

But we weren’t prepared for a call that informed, ‘Your mother’s been raped.’

Murder #AtoZChallenge @AprilA2Z

55 Fiction

It was at that moment, when he closed his eyes, a realization, that was unknown until this time, dawned at him.

And that made him feel unexpectedly buoyant.

Drunk on his new-found power, he wondered, “It’s so easy. It takes years to grow and all it takes is a little push to extinguish a life!”

They knew, their quarrel was unjust, still they argued, every day.

Sometimes, people would intervene but mostly they gathered around to witness the spectacle.

That day, the sparks of their hatred fell on the crowd.

That day justice was delivered swiftly by the lynching mob as they tossed their body parts at the circling vultures.

Every day, he walks the same route.

He leaves his home precisely at 6.30 am.

By 6.45 am, he reaches the kiosk to buy cigarettes.

He takes the deserted by-lane as a shortcut to the park at 6.55 am.

That’s where we’ll jump him and throw him in the waiting car. It won’t be easy!

An unmistakable crackle of excitement was in the air as they arranged the bottles.

A moment of hesitation… but curiosity got the better of them.

They cringed at the taste inwardly but feigned liking it.

Lowered inhibitions led to impulsiveness to drive the night away.

‘Hit-and-run crash: Drunk teenagers kill one’, screamed the morning headlines.
