‘It’ – a short story

We had a weird connection; my child and I. A very weird connection, indeed.

My small child had been in my thoughts forever. Every decision that I ever made; I thought of it. I still do, which is bizarre but I still do.

Deciding which job should I choose; I thought of it. I thought if my job would have a good effect or, God forbid, bad effect on my child. Will the job have any facilities for it? Mind you, the job should have facilities for it or I wouldn’t take the job. Period.

Deciding who I should marry; I thought of it. After all, till now, it and I had been together for years, which is bizarre but it’s true. So very true. I thought Continue reading

Today I realized what these terrorists want

Hostages held by ‘Islamists’ in Sydney cafe siege

As many as 30 people being held hostage in a cafe in Martin Place by at least one gunman.

Going through the parent scanner

You look right then left but today doesn’t seem to be your day. The security is too tight and there’s no way you can escape. You peek up to look at your parents and they give you an encouraging nod, gesturing you to lie down on the scanner belt.

Finally, you’re a step away from the scanner and you get a brilliant idea to save yourself from getting scanned. Continue reading
