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…..

Twittering Tale: Payphone

This payphone.

All those years ago, I remember I would stand here and call her. She used to stay in the adjoining building. We would sneak chats whenever we could. One day, a great fire broke out here. She didn’t survive.

I can still listen to her voice, on the payphone receiver…

Twittering Tale: Downpour

The rain is pouring down hard.

I do usually love the rain. However, today it has completely ruined my plans. It was all going well until now. The takeoff has been delayed. How will my plan be executed now?

I just can’t hijack a grounded flight…
