Three Line Tale: Your Heart

Dear child, go ahead and live out your heart to the fullest and may nobody stop you from doing it.

But beware the little black people who reside within you, and guard your heart from them, little one.

They enjoy dragging your heart down and making it sink to the depths of dark waters and smile as they do it…

Three Line Tale: Pool Party

The pool looked alluring under the clear starry skies, catching the fancy of all eyes that gazed upon it.

I knew that no one would refuse an invitation to a party at my pool, simply because of its legendary reputation: The Helen among pools, if I may call it so.

A pity that the reputation would get tarnished soon, but then again, I think its a fair exchange for the elimination of all my business rivals through a quick electrocution…

Three Line Tale: Rescue

The siblings were playing joyously in the shallow water, as their parents sat back on the golden beach sand, enjoying a beautiful setting sun.

When the little kids noticed a drowning man in the sea, they called out to their parents and pointed in the direction, only in time to see the man’s head disappearing.

The worried family frantically called out to the life guards, pointing out the emergency, without realizing that they had not witnessed a drowning, they had witnessed Aquaman’s return to the ocean…

It will be good fun! 😉

Now on to the story…


They were all tall, all not corpulent in the slightest, all bright, all waving in the air, but most of all, they were all yellow.

They stood much higher than the ground, zooming around in the air, with a smile on their face, in an attempt to make humans laugh and spread happiness.

Three Line Tale: Amusement Park

Every year, on the night before Christmas, the amusement park would come alive in all its splendor – the fun rides, the bright lights and the festive music would all resume.

The chortling of the kids as they sat on the merry-go-round, the whees from the ferris wheel, and the general excited banter of children would liven up an otherwise silent night.

The amusement park would become a striking image of itself, reliving its memories of the time of the night before Christmas those many years ago, the night of the great fire which burned down the park…
