In Another Life

Words 90

“What is next on the list Nani?”

“My cache of threads and needles to Sudha. Dance costumes and ankle bells to Archana.”

“What about me?”

“You can take my books.”

“Ana and Su will be so mad! What about your gold Nani?”

“All gone darling, all gone to meet the expenses of this house.”

“What about the stuff behind the purple door?”

“I plan to take them with me and start afresh.”

“What is in there?”

“Shattered dreams, suppressed ambitions, unfulfilled aspirations, a broken spirit and a roomful of hope.”


Written for Friday Fictioneers – a story in 100 words or less. Thanks to Rochelle for hosting it and CE Ayr for the photo prompt.
