Two Tickets For The Final Match

The final match was scheduled.

The closing ceremony was to be a grand affair with the nation’s favourite performers, and, of course, a spectacular drone-show and fireworks.

There was a long queue.

Three of them, consisting of two adults and a youngster, were eagerly waiting to enter the stadium.

The tickets were exorbitantly priced.

Still, all tickets were sold-out.

They just had two tickets.

But, their hope and belief was strong!

The young girl was praying sincerely.

With a spark in their eyes, they showed the two tickets to the ticket-inspectors.

Three of them were let in!

They danced joyfully!

Brick Trick

The home was finally completed after a lot of work.

The result was there for all to see and admire.

It seemed like it had been built brick by brick.

The bricks looked special with calligraphy carved on them.


The visitors were enjoying at the house-warming party.

The historian did not eat a morsel.

He was keenly observing the bricks.

My Heart Will Go On

Rose was visiting her village after years.

Memories came alive.

There was Jack serenading her.
She was ready to jump from her window!

Prompt- Alicia Jamtaas

Things had changed after the war.
Her home was bombed.
