Warfare transcending from Micro to Macro-world!

On some extremely rare occasions my write-up contains itself up to a word-limit of say, 100 words. And here is the one.


He pulled her ears, daring her to win. She, on the other hand, accepted the challenge shouting roguishly, ‘Game is on.’ Offended, his rage escalated to the devilish proportions, and he tried to bind the cord around her hands; she kicked him hard and ran towards the “Finish Line.”

A scream of pain echoed in the room, and then another. Group of five people, in green clothes, removed their mask, revealing smiling faces.

‘Congratulations! You are blessed with beautiful twins.’

The tiny girl winked at the cheesed-off boy saying, ‘Welcome to the eternal battlefield of sibling-rivalry, baby brother!’

For my non-Indian readers- Raksha Bandhan, a Hindu festival of siblings (or any kind of brother-sister bond,) symbolizing their love and sense of protection that they have for each other, is celebrated merrily around this period of time across India. To know more about “Raksha Bandhan” you may have a look here.

      Only that in my case thinking of such a short-fight would be nothing lesser than a wishful thinking. 😀

      Do such fights even exist, Neal? 😉 😀

      I’m glad you enjoyed it. 🙂 Tiff is just a euphemism for what actually takes place when siblings fight. Ain’t it? The real word is “Warfare.” 😉 😀
      I stumbled upon a picture of sleeping twin babies covered in woolen clothes, while scrolling through Facebook. And this short(est) story of mine came into existence. 😉
