five sentence fiction: fenced

Lillie McFerrin Writes
Our first arrival in our new home in Comilla, Bangladesh was very traumatic, every day there were a group of people came early hours in the morning to pluck our beautiful  china -rose flowers.
One of my brothers who thought he was strong decided to have a fight over this issue.
Well the time they decided was 11pm.
At the appointed time they gathered, my brother promptly went out , he was surprised there were thirty against him,he quietly came into the house.
My mother thought there was only one  solution, the house will have to be fenced to keep those people out.

  1. Dear Ranu,

    Thank you for sharing this post. I’m glad that the situation resolved itself without violence.

    All good wishes,


    • My brother did not expect thirty against him,the best thing was to retreat or they’d kill him.
      Later on my mom decided to get rid of the tree.

    • My mom didn’t want my brother to go out at that time of night,but he wouldn’t listen,
      imagine trying to fight thirty of them, of course he didn’t, he quietly came in.
      My mom offered to give the flowers but they said because we were Muslims it wasn’t acceptable.
      Imagine they could steal it and use it for their prayer, but cannot if we picked the flowers and gave them.
      How weird is that.
