Twittering Tale: Their Culture

“Oh God! Are we really going there?”
Yup.
“You realise they are uneducated tribals right?”
Yes. Very little is known about them. We can learn and share their culture with the world.
*2 hours later*
“Is keeping us locked in cages a part of their culture?!”
So is cannibalism, I’m sure…

Twittering Tale: Miracle Pool

The pool had earned a solid reputation.

Its waters slowed aging. The rich flocked to swim in the pool. They paid the hefty entry fees and swore by the effects. Only years later did they discover the village drainage pipes connecting to the pool.

The villagers avenged their past….

Twittering Tale: Deal

I waited for the old man to finish reading.

He looked at me and smiled.
“I’m glad for this offer. I’ve wanted to get rid of that piece of land for many years now. Are you sure though? The land is useless.”

I nodded and smiled as he signed the papers.

We had a place for the bodies…

Twittering Tale: Intervention

I’m the only one against the idea.

Everyone else seemed okay with it. We wait in the kitchen while the two sort out their differences outside. I’m unsure about leaving the two unsupervised. With them things tend to fly out of proportion.

Thank God, this party has a no-guns theme…

Twittering Tale: Dream Come True

I enjoyed my job.

It didn’t pay much, but being in a garage let me be close to cars. Sometimes, I would get to lay my hands on some exotic models. When the Beetle was brought in, it was a dream come true.

However, finding the cash stash underneath truly made my dreams come true…

Twittering Tale: Transplant

Well, this wraps it up. Congrats on another succesful transplant, doc.

“Thanks! It a tough one.”

Coz you were operating on your ex wife, using an experimental method?

“Yes, my friend. You see, she always called me a dog. I want to see how she deals with possessing a dog’s heart…”

Twittering Tale: I Spy

Spying is fun.

My new neighbour is so cute. I wonder what she’s looking for on her terrace. I think I’ll fit in here, need to have a closer look. Yum. Her husband is one lucky man. Wait, isn’t that him? Why’s he tied? What! Did she just knife him?

Shit! I’m stuck and she’s seen me.

Twittering Tale: By Her Side

She has always been my friend.

I’ve always been there for her. I stuck by her through the good days and the bad ones. I stuck by her side when she lost her head over some guy. I was there even when he cut off her head.

Now, I am by her side as she delivers flowers to his grave….

Twittering Tale: Midnight Snack

I hate this.

These midnight hunger pangs are the worst. I have to get out from my cozy bed and go all the way to the kitchen, in darkness, because I don’t want to disturb my sleepy eyes. It’s scary. What if there’s something in the shadows?

And even worse, what if it wants my food?

Twittering Tale: The Storm

Red alert has been sounded.

All the citizens have retreated into shelters. It is a pointless endeavour. I stand at the top of the tower, looking straight at the approaching storm. Storm of the century they call it. What fools! This is just the first one.

The first of my storms…..
