The extra X Factor

Words 100

“New car, new gold jewelry! Did you win the lottery Rhea?”

“I was born with five lottery tickets.”

“Excuse me?”

“I have five brothers.”

“Ah! The pampered sister.”

“Not always. They were such terrors when I was young.”


“They teased and bullied me mercilessly. But now they would do anything for me.”

“Even give you a share of the ancestral property?”

“Of course!”

“Want to bet?”

“Why are you so negative?”

“Ask them.”

“I will.”


“They said ancestral property was for sons not daughters.”

“I told you so!”

“You would know. After all you too are a son.”

  1. A strange yet an honest truth, the divisions, sentiments, attachments are so disilusional at times…yet we find peace in them only…so ironical, picture though is so disturbing……


  2. Very reality based for so many. Wasn’t so long ago that even in America, Women were not permitted to own land or vote. What it must have been like to live in that time, captured well.
