You are not here

Dad,
             I wanted to write you this letter for a long time. If you remember it was a long time ago that you left us. I still remember your words like it was yesterday, 

"You make me miserable, I can't live in this house any longer." 
 

And you had walked away, I find it hard to believe that you forgot us but how can I answer the fact that you haven't called, visited or sent any mails to us since you left. You are not here but the problems are. 
 

Mom hasn't been herself since you left, I had to grow up overnight at the age of 13, Didn't I deserve to be a kid for a little longer, didn't I need my dad but you were not here. You left and never came back but with your absense we had to face all the difficulties alone. For a long time, he had little to no money. Then Mom started some work and that's how we survived. 


But how would you know all that, You are not here, why aren't you here? Where did you go? Why didn't you ever visit us? Don't you remember us any more? Did we do anything wrong? You are not here but you left us all the people who chased us for the money you owed them. 

You are not here but the cracks in the wall are there which cried for repairs but we barely survived and there's wasn't even enough money to eat both the times. How could we spare the money on un-necessary things like repair. I try to forget but can't forget the sight of you lying on the floor, cluching your chest, after you said those words. Doctor said you had a heart attack. You left us and never even visited us in dreams. You are not here, you left us alone in this cruel world. 

Your Son

Short

He was fast, he was furious
He would fly on his bike no matter the traffic
He was a daredevil, he was in a race
His bike got slipped and his life got cut short

Unexplained

He was in bed enjoying the weekend rain while his wife worked in kitchen and his son watched cartoons.

He had a stack of books on the bedside table, he had just received the packages from Amazon and he had eagerly ripped through them to gaze at the beautiful covers.

Also on the table were a letter opener and a scissor.

Suddenly he sensed something in the room but of course he didn't see anything. He thought that someone whispered something in his ear. What was said he didn't understand but what happened next couldn't be explained.

He picked up the scissors and started cutting his hair, it was like his hands were moving independently. He cut whatever hair he could find on his body.

Then for the reasons which are still unexplained.

He turned the scissors on him he used the sharp blades to cut both his wrists.

He also stabbed himself multiple times, and then to finish the task he slashed his throat.

Most strange and unexplained was the fact that he still had a smile on his face as his son cried and his wife called hospital upon seeing him lying in the pool of blood on the bed.

A creepy unexplained smile.





Note - I am writing after a very long time so please excuse the mistakes. How are you guys, do you think this can evolve in to a series of unexplained short stories? As always please leave your feedback in the comments to inspire me further.

Shine

"Sir Shine! Shoe Shine! Sir, make your shoes brand new in few minutes" pleaded a kid barely 12 years old to the man in the suit

He looked at the kid irritatingly and then looked at his shoes, they did looked like they needed a shine, "Such a dirty place" he muttered

"Ok! Ok!" he said

The kid lit up and placed his platform below so sir can put his foot there, and he started on the shoes, he wiped them with a cloth and applied wax and rubbed and then rubbed some more first with brush and then with another cloth.

Within five minutes sir's shoes were shining bright.

"Oye! see one spot is remaining fix that too." Sir pointed

"Ok sir." was all the kid said that corrected the issue

"How much?" asked sir

"Sir only Rs. 20/-" said the hopeful

"What! are you trying to scam me, look at you asking me Rs 20 for a quick cloth swipe, here keep this 10 and go away" Sir ji shouted

Kid's face fell and he moved ahead to shine few more shoes

Sirji was a fairly famous man, and he made his way towards the conference hall where he was supposed to speak about the steps he took to help poor kids and making sure that they didn't work and attended school.

Sir was a social worker and a above all a hypocrite and the flash lights were shining bright on his as he entered the hall.

News from the Future

Agency: 14 July 2516 - The HOTTEST New Dish in town

A new dish has everyone rushing to this hot new destination but alas! most go in vain as the owner only serve the dish to cricketers and that too only visiting teams who visit Jamaica in West Indies. After all the restaurant is called Gayle's is managed by Great-Great-Great-Great-Great Grand son of Jamaican cricketer Chris Gayle.

The dish is called "Juvenile male thrubs in curry" this tasty dish has International crickets from across the world pushing their boards for a tour to West Indies and as well as thanking their stars to be playing cricket in this age where most of the other games are played by the robots.

We spoke with Gayle's owner Thomas Gayle IV who told us that the dish uses only the male juvenile thrubs as the female juvenile thrubs are not at all eatable and they are ultimately used to reproduction so that the males can be used for food. Females give birth to about 5000 larvaes at a time and out of which about 90% are male. Only juveniles can be used for food as the adult males are also inedible due to high salt content in their body, as they grow they accumulate salt in their bodies. Females as we all know are slimy to begin with and grow to be jelly like.

This  species crash landed on our earth aboard a small asteroid which crashed near West Indies and soon they made the West Indies their home and the world got their new favorite meal.

This starts hopefully my new feature called "News from the Future" though which I am trying to bring my imagination to a new era:
