Wish

This post has been published by me as a part of the Blog-a-Ton 12; the twelfth edition of the online marathon of Bloggers; where we decide and we write. To be part of the next edition, visit and start following Blog-a-Ton.

She struggled with all her might but could not free herself as many men were pushing her down.

She was also crying for the help but no spectator came to help her.

Then the man came with the knife and slit her throat.

Her last wish was that someday people stop eating meat so that goats can live longer.

P.S. - Was going for Fiction 55 but went beyond by  four words. Any way I just hope that you like this attempt of mine better than my last 55er.

  7. Sensitive write up.. but when human beings are ready to 'eat' human beings, who cares for goats now a days? But that does not reduce value of what you are saying.

  37. Hey nice one Vikas.. super duper twist :)

    ReplyDelete
  38. Rocking story-starts off by creating a very different picture and ends up with a altogether different twist.
    And the fact that you have done with such brevity and flourish is what makes it amazing !

  42. There is a picture I saw in the news (I wish I had the link to it) which would be so perfect with this post. I'll try and summarize it in words; there is a shop and to the right of the entrance to the shop there is a child sitting and playing with a goat. The profoundity comes in when you realize that its a butchers shop....I'm sure you can imagine the thoughts that ensue.
