Tiny Tales

tiny tale #22: Jolt

The dark alleyway twisted and turned, and she was lost.

She ran as fast as her legs could carry her.

She was being chased.

A dead end loomed ahead and the crooks were closing in on her.

She woke up with a jolt and breathed a sigh of relief.

Author’s Note:

Luckily for her, it wasn’t real and she was safe. It was just a nightmare. The same can’t be said for everyone.

We might live in the 21st century but the streets aren’t safe enough for women. Sadly, for our gender, safety is more of a luxury than a basic right.

    1. Yes. Even though it’s fiction, I didn’t have the heart to let that happen to the character. But for some, this could have been a reality.
      Thanks a lot for stopping by and sharing your thoughts! 😊

      1. Ohhh now that I think about it, it was evident from the third last line. Appo that kind of makes the last two redundant. Thanks for pointing that out, Akhila! Pettannu ezhuthiyitt onnum aalochikkathe post cheyyumbol pattunnatha abhatham aanu. 😂

      2. Actually I am relieved now in two cases. First you understood thoroughly what I meant and then you took it in the right sense…happy for that..you started the tiny tale beautifully, but would have been more beautiful if ended the suspense part in just a single line

      3. I’m so happy that you took the chance to point it out. 😘 Athu sheriya it would have been more beautiful to end it without those two lines. Pinne vayichappol aanu thoniyathu. Thanks a lot for pointing that out. Njan ippo post edit cheyyan pokukeya. 😊 Thanks a lot for the constructive criticism. Iniyum ithu pole ondenkil paranju tharane 😊
