World Famous Site: A 100 Word Story

“And here you see the world-famous site,” the tour-guide made a point under the shade of the tree.

“What?”
“Are you serious?”
“Really?”
All the tourists put forth their opinion.

“You don’t believe me. Have you ever seen such a phenomenal thing? There were even talks of taking it under the protection of UNESCO World Heritage List. I think the government is making provisions to do so.”

“Are you sure this tree… uh… tree-cycle… cycle clung, no hung to tree is a famous site… huh?” a kid asked seriously.

“Oh what? I was talking about the ancient fort on your left.”

Frock: A 100 Word Story

Copyright – Janet Webb

The not-so-red, slightly pink frock was hovering in the air and it appeared as if  an invisible girl was clad in it, hung there by the side-railing.

Momma, see that pretty frock,” the girl walking along her mother by the street, pointed towards this piece of cloth.

“It is pretty.”

“I want it,” her eyes glinted with hope.

“I’ll ask dada to get one for you.”

“But I want this one,” she tugged at her mother’s arm, restraining to move any further.

“Don’t whine.”

“But…”

She was pulled up in the arms and taken away, her eyes adorned with tears.
