Today’s one-word prompt: Borrowed

I guess most times in some stage of our lives we’ve borrowed from someone. I’ve borrowed a few times from a relative. Once it was money, and another time a sari.

Money I borrowed because I received a scholarship to study far away from my home. I was  required to carry 500 rupees. So I borrowed the money, promising to pay as soon as I have the money. Years passed I hadn’t fulfilled my promise, suddenly I remembered I wasn’t given the money, rather I was supposed to pay her back. I had some US dollars which I gave her to pay back my loan, she had a smile on her face, she realized I had paid back much more than I owed.

The sari I borrowed was for a day only which I returned at the end of the day.

Today’s one-word prompt: LOCKED

Right now I’m occupied with the thought,when will I finish reading 25 books, is it May or might require part of June. I already read 21, from January 4th to April 23rd, 2016.

I still have 8 months left to complete my reading challenge this year, my speed has slowed down suddenly, my concentration has gone down the drain. This change  factor is making me concerned. All I’m thinking is what if I don’t get the last four books read on time.

It reminds me about the hare and the tortoise, I hope my initial speed does not make me over-confident and end up losing the race like the hare!
