Estate No:- 37

This week’s photo prompt is provided by The Magicsticgoldenrose. Thank you for our photo prompt!


                     After many years Maya’s children were returning home. Education, work, family of their own had kept them away from her for long. Hesitant to move in with them after her husband’s demise, the matriarch had stayed in this huge castle built lovingly by her husband.

                    During their time, the castle always hosted numerous friends, relatives from all over the place.Reminiscing thus, she got up to monitor the preparation of  delicacies for her kids. After a very long time, the whole house seemed as if it had regained its life.

                    Finally her kids, daughters-in law and grandchildren arrived, & prostrated before her. She blessed them with long life and happiness. Seemingly happy to be back & promising to be closer home,one of her son’s attention happened to fall on a newspaper clipping which read, Auction of Estate No:- 37, to be commenced on Sunday.

                      Not believing that his house was to be auctioned, he called for his brother’s attention. Exchanging glances which read, who was to shoulder the burden of the old lady?

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.
