Unsuccessful Plan #Prose & Poetry

One day we all friends planned to hang out at midnight. I waited till everyone in the house went to sleep and then left the house.

Out of excitement I left the keys to the door. As I was going out without informing anyone in the house, I pushed my bike a little distance and then drove away.

We had planned to meet under the bridge at midnight, but after covering some distance, I realized my mistake of forgetting the keys to the door and so I went back.

Now in a panic I drove my bike straight to the main door. On hearing the sound of my bike Dad woke up and came to the window to check and I was caught. Our plan of hanging out and having fun flopped because of those keys.

This was the situation of my mind

Hang
out in
the middle
of the night goes
flop

Turn In Life #Flash Fiction

The wife of a rich man dies suddenly. Relatives remarry him as he has a young son. His son’s name is Richard.

For a year or two, his second wife takes good care of her husband and her stepson Richard and wins their heart but when her own child Bunty is born, she shows her true colours.

The father dies with this grief.

She is a dirty and filthy woman. She treats Richard like a servant and even stops his schooling. Richard wants to learn and become a big man but she beats him brutally and holds him in her fist. His father tries to save him but can’t help as his wife has taken control of everything.

She controls Richard in everything. He is so influenced by her that he becomes a stoic.

She and her son Bunty sit at the dining table to have food and Richard is asked to sit on the floor and have the leftovers.

Richard works day and night in his own field with his servants as he has a habit of enduring everything with silence.

One day an accident occurred on the highway while he was working in the field, so all the vehicles had to divert from the main road and go over the field embankment.

A rich girl’s car gets stuck in the mud. She screams for help, Richard rushes to her aid and with the help of other servants pulls her car out of the mud. This rich girl begins to see him as a stuntman.

Gradually she develops interest in him and comes to the field to meet him. She learns from other servants that his stepmother is harassing him. She tells Richard that she’s not a rich girl but the daughter of a driver who drives a car of a rich man.

Further she makes a plan by meeting other honest servants who help her in her plan and as per their plan a farmer takes the girl to Richard’s house and tells his stepmother that, if she accepts his daughter as her daughter- in-law then he will give her 1000 square meters of farmland.

This greedy woman with the hope of getting 1000 square meters of land got her married to Richard.

After getting married, Richard goes to the farm as usual. At home Richard’s stepmother tells the housemaid not to come for work as she wants Richard’s wife to do all the house chores.

As Richard’s wife knows everything about her mother-in-law she doesn’t obey her orders instead she beats her with the same belt which she used to beat Richard. Her addicted son , Bunty too gets beaten when he comes to help his mother.

When Richard comes home to have lunch he is surprised to see everything has changed in his house.

The relationship between the stepmother and her son Bunty was split. Seeing this strange change, Richard starts thinking how all things have changed in his house in a day.

Tommy – a faithful dog

Far away from other houses, a farmer was living with his daughter. His hut house had all the comforts. He had a good-natured and beautiful daughter. Her name was Gemma. Gemma was now of marriageable age. Her father was looking for a good boy and he found one good boy for his daughter.

All the preparations for the wedding were done and one day the house was burglarized when she and her father were not at home. All the items bought for her wedding, including jewelry, clothes and some valuable things were stolen.

Coins and notes of British time were at home. The thieves left those coins and notes of British time because they no longer had a price. The shock of looting everything in the house hit her father and he died of a heart attack.

The young man got married without taking anything as well because Gemma was polite, beautiful and understanding.

Now Gemma understood the importance of dogs. She brought a puppy to protect her and her home. Gemma named the puppy Tommy.

Her husband was an engineer on a ship, so he would come every six months and He would return to work immediately after 1-2 months.

To Gemma, Tommy was everything. She used to talk to him. He used to listen to all her joys and sorrows. He used to stay with her. He was a best friend of Gemma.

In a couple of years, Gemma had a cute baby boy and was named Gerald. Since there was no servant in the house, Gemma would tell Tommy to take care of the house and play with Gerald. Overall, Tommy was a special member of their household.

One day, as it was her daily routine, Gemma Gerald’s mother got up early in the morning and went to the fish market to fetch fish. As usual, she told Tommy, “Look, Gerald is asleep. He shouldn’t get up. Don’t make any noise. I’ll get the fish right away, until then take care of him.”and she locked the door of their bedroom from the outside and she left. But today, Gerald got up earlier than usual and began to cry with hunger. He was only two years old.

Gerald was crying, and clapping his hands on the window. Tommy’s heart was pounding when he saw Gerald crying. Tommy stood in a chair by the window, While waiting for Gerald’s mother. His mind was saying, “How come Gerald’s mother hasn’t come yet. An hour has passed, she should have come now. Gerald needs her more than me.

Suddenly he heard footsteps near the door, and he could hear them near and near.
