Intriguing

This is my attempt at this week’s Six-word story challenge. This week’s prompt: Intriguing

We will never know. Isn’t it?


Few other stories:

  1. I really thought I knew him…
  2. Betrayal is one thing. But this?!
  3. I stared open-mouthed;  rooted in disbelief.

 

 

Grief

Story 1: She traded her grief for loneliness.

Story 2: Grief stays; even when happiness deserts.

So sorry everybody for my absence (again). The medical issues resurfaced :'(. They are under control now and am back… Thank you all for your patience.

Wish you all a very very Happy, Prosperous, Healthy, Peaceful New Year!


 

The romance of it all!

It was the most romantic place I had ever seen. I loved him more than ever; marveled at his thoughtfulness. All stayed well for less than twenty-four hours. That’s when they arrived.

I now marvel at his naivety, in believing that I would have loved a surprise party; with relatives – on our first anniversary!!!

Beaten – again! :(

It sounded simple in theory. Approach her, hand her the letter, and tell her “It’s from Mike”. Easy right?! But then, I am Rajesh; the kid who is pathologically shy in front of girls…. Sucks to get beaten again!


Pardon my reference to “Big Bang Theory!”. I simply couldn’t resist (“theory” in the prompt!) :D.

When you stumble

“How could they have been so mean?”

“Good and bad do exist you know. Life can’t be all good. Sometimes you need to stumble on the bad. Someone, surely wise, has said ‘When you stumble, make it part of the dance’. And you dance! Have you ever learned to dance without an initial stumble? Take this experience as that first stumble.”

Dangerous thing

My mouth salivated, my senses tingled. It consumed me as I consumed it.

“How is it?” she asked.

“OK” I replied, careful not to let her know.

Dangerous thing, making the wife feel in control.

We may not be normal like you – no homes, no day jobs, no restaurants on weekends. We are just your average gypsies – wanderers at heart, dreamers by choice. We take shelter under canvas roofs raised on wheels, live under the sky and its fireworks, get drunk on the morning dew as we make our way to nowhere.

My escape

He would kill me if he found me. But this wasn’t living either. I made my decision. I wouldn’t be controlled by that Leviathan beast of fear anymore.

 I walked to the door. 


This time, I was late for submission to YeahWrite’s monthly Microprose challenge. That doesn’t stop me from posting it here though. :).

Details of the challenge:

Your task this week is to write a story in exactly 33 words incorporating the word leviathan, specifically the third definition “something large or formidable (that leviathan of international corporations)”

The empty canvas

emptiness-1

He wondered. Art begins with an empty canvas. But can an empty canvas itself be art? When people can see cats and dogs in clouds; the rainbow in oil; what would they see in an empty canvas?

Some saw his audacity, some his foolishness. Some though seemed to find meaning.

Prose Challenge – Write a 50 word story inspired by the image above.  What is it? A blank screen edged in static? A chalkboard with no writing on it?  The strange view out of a window, perhaps from a spaceship?  You tell us.

Bonus point for including any of the following words: emptiness, void, or abyss.
