What money can buy

PHOTO PROMPT © Sandra Crook

It was that hour of the day again, Anand spent it gazing at the all impressive hotel by the sea. But he was wary of the guards with big moustache who seemed vigilant. It was his dream to avail a ticket to this place and participate in its richness and splendour.

Today was that special day. He wanted to treasure each moment spent there.

Everything was grand and sparkling clean, receptionists greeting with rehearsed smiles and panache. The grandeur of laughter, affection and warmth was unknown here. True, money can buy a ticket but not happiness.

The flowers of the fiction plant rooted in my brain, the voice of the inexpressible feelings hidden in my heart and the eruption of the theories burning in my mind– I made a ball out of the three, threw it high into the sky and it landed right at my blog.
