Kiss of life.

100 Words on Saturday – 4


Today’s prompt is :


There were no scars on her body but brain hemorrhage crushed her lofty dreams of the beauty pageant crown.

Chitragupta opened her Karma Books of Accounts on Earth, asked, “Charity to an orphanage?”

“I was raised as an orphan there”.

“Supporting an old woman?”

“She is like my mother”.

“Sponsoring a girl child’s education?

“Paying it forward”

“If you were re-born as a rose?”

“I would love to be on the tomb of an unknown soldier who died for his country”.

Chitragupta adorns her head with a crown and Yama plants a kiss of ‘life’ and she becomes truly alive.
