Funeral Of A Leg! #Flash – Fiction

“Boo …. boo, today I saw a weird funeral,” said Rose.

“Strange! You don’t know what a funeral is. Have you not been to anyone’s funeral ever? Isn’t anyone dead in your house? Johnny asked Rose

“No, how can I tell you now?” Said Rose

“Now, tell me in a simple and straightforward language, “said Johnny

“Look, when we die ,the mass is offered to our souls and bodies are burried, but what I saw today was a funeral and the man had come to the cemetery with his foot. He brought his foot with ten to twelve people and buried it in the cemetery.” Rose told to Johnny

“Wasn’t this your latest dream today?” questioned Johnny

“No, not a dream, I saw it.” said Rose.

Johnny said ironically,” and the Priest would have offered Mass.”

“No, boo … I dream but it was a reality. ” Rose said

“OK, now tell me in which cemetery you see and why did you go there?” Johnny asked Rose

“There is a church right in front of our school and there is a cemetery on the right side and that cemetery is visible from our staff room. I was looking out of the window during the free period and suddenly, these ten-twelve people came with a very small coffin. When I saw that coffin, I thought it must have been a little child, and I called our peon, Philip and asked him,”did someone’s child die today?”

He smiled ironically and said, “This is the work of a rich man, Fidalgo. Fidalgo’s leg was amputated for some reason ….The funeral of his own foot is going on .”

“I was shocked to hear about the funeral of our body parts.” Rose told Johnny.

Then the peon jokingly added, “Teacher, we see headless ghosts in the movie, walking on the wall, facing differently, blooded and so on. Now we will see only the foot and not the ghost.”

I said, “Philip, his soul is alive, not dead, only his leg is dead, so how can that be a ghost?” and I imagined ghosts, only walking on foot. Thoughts began to come to my mind ,” Do I believe in ghosts?”

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.

Revenge Part II# Flash Fiction

Shruti left the house with a pistol to kill her husband and end the issue forever.There was a confusion of thoughts in her head.

An ordinary fisherman named Sameer was living in Shruti’s village.

I have expressed his lifestyle in simple language here. In the following rhyme

Ordinary People

Life of the ordinary people
Straightforward and simple
The Sun rises and sets
They’re busy with fishing nets!!

In the low tide they cast nets
When It’s high tide they raise nets
Longing to fill stomach with food
They’re busy with separating seafood!!

As a normal person, people used to tease and use him as they wanted. Shruti’s husband used to take big fish from him and say, he would pay later. He was in debt but not paying.

So Sameer took a sporty but real looking pistol and came to Shruti’s husband’s place, where he is every day, in the building that had Symmetrical arched doors . Sameer’s plan was to intimidate him by showing him a pistol and get his fish money back

#writephoto-Folly

Sameer reached the building that had symmetrical arched doors in the gothic style. At the same time Shruti reached the second symmetrical arched door. Sameer raised a pistol on Shruti’s husband and at the same time Shruti aimed the pistol and shot her husband. Shruti’s bodybuilder husband collapsed to the ground and a stream of blood gushed out of his chest like a fountain.

I have explained Sameer’s miserable situation in this haiku poem.

The sound of gun shot
He smelled gun muzzled near him
And he was puzzled

Super Hero – Dad

Super Hero – Dad

Nowadays, the kids don’t go out to play. A game usually played at home is Hide and Seek.

Once, Minnie was playing hide and seek with her siblings. She wanted to hide somewhere, but where? She wanted a place where no one could reach, so she chose a barrel. This barrel was kept to use the water outside the bathroom. She easily jumped inside from the bathroom steps. The barrel was half full. She covered the top of the lid so that she would not be found by her siblings.

But no one came to look for her. After a while, she began to suffocate. But because she was small, she could not remove the lid. She was short of oxygen and sweaty. She could hear everyone calling her, but her voice did not reach them.

Her luck was so strong that her super hero dad called her and hit the barrel. When he removed the lid, Minnie was unconscious. Her super hero took her to the nearest health center as soon as possible and with timely help, Minnie reached home safely

But on arrival, she was determined never to play “hide and seek” again.
