tiny tale #70: Operation focus

“Argh, this damn thing..”, Nia could have swore but that would have earned her a reproachful look.

“It’s okay, Nia. You just have to focus. Let it be the only thing that’s on your mind.”, Grandma Agnes guided her grandchild.

“I’m trying, granny. Can you please be quiet! I can’t focus when I’m speaking to you! Have a little faith.”

“Please”, Nia added, trying to soften the blow.

Nia took deep breaths. Grandma Agnes waited patiently.

“Okay, gran. Here we go again. Fingers crossed.”

With the deliberation of a neurosugeon making their first cut, Nia made a calculated move.

And it worked! Victory was hers.

She had finally managed to thread the needle.

Grandma Agnes could now carry on with her embroidery work.

This tiny tale was written in response to the Discover prompt for the day: Focus.

  1. Wow.. what a focus. I really need the same focus just for putting thread in the needle. Embroidered is such a difficult task for me.
    Btw you have written such a beautiful tiny tale.

    1. I have heard that it’s easier to bring the needle to the thread than the other way around. I have never really tried my hand at embroidery. Thank you so much, Richa. Do check out my other tales if you are interested. 🙂

      1. Ohh don’t worry. I’m fix that shortly. Some bloggers declare that their blogs are award-free which means that they don’t accept any awards. That’s why I checked with you first before nominating you. 😃

      2. That’s great news. 😃 There’s so much to explore. I’ve been on WordPress since 2014 and I still have a lot to learn. But WordPress has got really good tutorials.
        P.S: I’m just too lazy to go through them. 😂
