A Full Glass of Life – Flash Fiction Story

The cartoon of a girl face and scarf around her neck with strands of lights in the foreground
Reading Time: 2 minutes

Parvati had never seen misery her entire life.

An Unheard Conversation – Flash Fiction Story

One old lady standing behind another old lady with her hands on the woman's shoulders
Reading Time: 2 minutes

Two old ladies sit side by side.

Both are hard of hearing.

One is Shama and the other is Masha. Sisters by birth, friends by choice. Eighty-eight and ninety-two, ripe ages with much decay yet plenty left to say.

They chirp like birds and sip on vodka. The reason they believe they have lived so long. Shama is a widow with no offspring. Masha is a four-time divorcee with seven children, four birthed from her womb, three shared with two prior husbands.

You Can Never Be Too Short – Flash Fiction Story

The silhouettes of a mother and child with the mother's finger on the child's nose
Reading Time: 3 minutes

You can never be too short.

My mother probably knew what this meant. She’s the one who used to say it.

Every day till she died.

She’d lick her thumb and smoothen my unruly eyebrows. Two swift strokes, one left, one right. And then she’d cup my cheeks in her hardened palms and stare intently into my eyes.

Her head dipping down at a forty-five degrees angle.
