- It was 6:30 PM. Grudgingly, she got up. “He had promised to be here by the 5:30 train” she thought. It was the 20th anniversary of that promise.
- He knew he had to get it right this time. All his previous attempts were foiled, some due to lack of preparation, others due to celestial interjection. This time however, he was confident of success. He could hear the train approaching. Closer. Closer. Screaming, he jumped “Death, is only the beginning.”

After the longest time, here’s my second attempt to Terribly Tiny Tales challenge! Both are products of personal experiences I had during 2017. Hope you enjoy it!
- He hadn’t dreamt that one in over 10 years. Recently married, he smilingly told his wife, “Y’know.. I dreamt my favourite dream after 10 years! But something was different this time around.” “What?” she asked. “This time, you were in it!”
- He lied down next to his younger brother as they’d done for 15 years. “Everything is going to change tomorrow.” “Yes”, his brother responded. 24 hours later: He lied down next to his wife.

I’ve always loved the magic 140 characters can create! So I thought it’s about time I take up the Terribly Tiny Tales challenge! Here’s my first shot at it. Hope you enjoy!
- He waited and waited and waited. After 16 years, she realized. Invitations, shortly.
- Everyday, the knock came exactly at 7:45 pm. Everyday, she waited, entire day, excitedly. That day, it didn’t.
- It rained heavily that day. He missed his interview. Dejected, he fell back on it. Sentenced for ten.
- He never thought of her that way. She always did. He dated. She waited. He noticed. She smiled. They, forever.
- They ran after his car as it stopped at the red. “Sir, we haven’t eaten anything for 3 days, could you give us some money?” The door opened. Day 1 of school. They took over his business when he died.
I hope you liked my first attempt at TTT! Do hit like if you did! Be back with more soon!
This is the Sciolist!
He rushed to the station and climbed into the local train. He couldn’t be late today. He was going to seal the biggest deal of his life. Today was the day when his life was going to change. He felt buoyant and confident. He talked himself into a happy space, completely immersed in a virtual conversation in his mind. He thought he was lucky to have an opportunity to work with such an esteemed client!
Somebody screamed from behind him, but he couldn’t understand what they were saying. Suddenly everything went black. “Sir, we’re sorry to say this, but we had to amputate your legs. This was the only way! You’re lucky to be alive.”
He enjoyed every morsel of that night’s dinner. Later, he went out to his 32nd floor apartment’s balcony and lit a cigarette. He puffed deep into the night. “Finally” he thought to himself, “The curse is off. I’m at peace.”
Next day the papers read, “Riches to Rags: Billionaire donates his entire estate to the poor.”
He survived this bombing, just like he had thrice before. People said he carried the boon of eternal life. An age later, he wept. “It’s a curse.” Life was killing him.
