“What about your promises to me?” She had reminded her husband of their vows.
“Love, let me fulfill the promise to my Motherland this time, for yours I have six more lifetimes’, he had smiled and left for his greatest battle.
She recalled expressionlessly and bowed to accept the gallantry medal  from the President.

The neighborhood couldn’t bear it anymore. It was an everyday affair he would fight with her and then torture her.

But today he just threw her out in the cold winter night. They had to teach him a lesson now. Seeing the angry crowd, she cried out “Please don’t harm him, he’s my only son.”

PS.: For the first time I am writing a something based on a true incident, I have seen it happen with my own eyes and realized the truth of the statement my grandmother used say “Evil son maybe but evil mother can never be”.

Couldn’t help but posting it on Mother’s day.

The Power of Red

“Suddenly applying Sindoor today, anything special” inquired her husband. She smiled “Just like that” and hurried to office.

She was at office canteen as usual with her best friend. Waiting.

Then she saw him coming looking nervous but the moment his eyes fell on her forehead he froze completely.  “It worked” whispered her friend slyly.

He could see the ‘End’ and the headline “Young Pilot crashed at the Air Show”.
With the aircraft hurtling at .8 Mach and the lever not working what else could be done.

He tried one last time and pulled up the lever, Wow! Miracle! The aircraft straightened and radio blurted “Bravo! That was ‘a’ magnificent maneuver!”

indiavillagerHe came home from the fields just like everyday but he felt little giddy, his son who had already returned from college rushed to help him but he collapsed.
They rushed him to hospital.

The next day a little article appeared in some corner of the newspaper titled “A Farmer ends life by consuming pesticide”.

PS.: I couldn’t put a title to this one…. any help would be appreciated. After Tags it seems 55-Fictions galore ….

PPS: I thank all of you for suggesting so many nice and apt titles I was confused actually which one to use but some of have suggested you liked  the one suggested by Vipul. Thank you so much Vipul. I go with this one 😀 and title the story as “Seeds of Sorrow”.

“They have arrived come fast” said his mother on phone.
He quickly glanced at ‘their’ room and was satisfied that it’s ready to welcome ‘them’.

He headed straight towards his mom and she pointed to ‘them’.
Finally he could see ‘them’. Sleeping peacefully in their little cradles a boy and a girl, his twin babies.

Other day I saw you at the mall after a long time and waved.

You waved back and told something to your husband pointing me.  I said “She’s my friend” to wife, She smiled and replied “She’s very pretty”.

I continued “and thats her husband. Don’t they look great together just made for each other “.

PS: This is my first attempt at 55-Fiction (55 word story) hence comments are eagerly awaited.  Meanwhile you can read some exotic 55ers here.  Most of which are penned by Pal.

PPS: This can also be read as prequel or sequel to “We are just Friends
