Daily Prompt : Disappear

In response to prompt  : Disappear

The Fish that disappeared!

Once we bought a fish from the supermarket. We didn’t know the name of the fish but bought it any way. I was happy we’ll taste a new fish. In the evening I cleaned the fish steaks, heated a pan to fry it. I put the fish in the pan, moments later I saw the fish was disintegrating, I let it cook thinking it’d be ok. To my surprise the  fish melted and disappeared, all I could see was the oil and nothing else.

From then on we tried to remember what the fish was like to avoid buying it !

Writing 101- Prompt-3

Write about three most important songs in your life– what do they mean to you?

I have a lot of songs in my mind and they all mean a lot to me. I sing quietly at times when I am sad, some give me the strength to forget my worries and move on, others make me happy.

To me songs have a unique reaction for me it calms my mind when someone hurts my feelings, I can spend hours listening to songs that are uplifting.

Here is one that I love,: Thank you Allah!

I am ready to commit to a writing practice, this is my first writing practice:

I woke up at 5am to pray .After spending an hour,I felt sleepy, I told myself I’ll wake up at 7 am but ended up sleeping longer. I got dressed to get ready to go to the kitchen to prepare breakfast. I always have porridge for breakfast, one of these days I’d be so sick of it I’ll never look at it.For now I am religiously eating it.

I came back to my room to turn on my computer hoping someone remembers me and will write a nice email to me, but no luck . I’m writing this twist as they call it for fifteen minutes. I may pick up “Atlas Shrugged ” to read .The part I started reading was very interesting, Dagny is quite the brave woman, going to a little diner, I don’t think I would,then again I’m scared of everything, even when a dog barks I think it will bite me. How foolish you’d say, but I have my reason,I was chased by a bunch of dogs when I was six, only because I was carrying a little note for my sister’s friend.

What can I say about my big sister she is such a bully, if you don’t listen to her she’d scream your ears off, do I want to hear her scream, no would you, her voice is so shrill. I tell you she’s no Julie Andrews , the hills won’t come alive when she sings, they’ll disappear.

She used to tell me I’ll never be anything because I did not spend my time with a book like she did.Now that i think about it I bet she did not study all thjose times she had a book in front of her. I know she did not want to do any chores around the house, so Mom thought her sweet old daughter is so studious.

Mom thought Ranu never looks at a book, she’s the one who should do all the chores, she won’t be as learned as the big daughter. Guess what I proved her wrong, I got as many degrees as she did, not only that, I have one more.

365 Writing Prompts: No you see me

You have a secret superpower: the ability to appear and disappear at will. When and where will you use this new superpower?Tell us a story.

I know I have a secret superpower, I can appear and disappear whenever I want to. I wasn’t sure how I’d use this power.

I was curious to know how this power of mine can be useful, keeping this in mind I went to a drug store to get some face cream for me. While checking the different brands, I noticed two little boys in front of the shelf of chocolates, are they trying to steal some was the thought that struck me?

Immediately I used my power of disappear and landed close to them, I overheard the boys  telling each other, “you let me know when someone’s coming,so I can pick a couple of these delicious chocolates and put them in my pocket, we will share them when we’re out.”

It was time for me to appear in front of the boys before they stole the chocolates, Hi I said, aren’t these chocolates delicious, will you buy some?

No one of them said and both turned around to leave, I knew they were disappointed but I felt relieved I stopped them from stealing, as they were about to leave I talked to them about chocolates and told them the dark chocolates were good for health, the boys were happy to let me know which ones they liked and dark ones were too bitter they didn’t like them.

I volunteered to buy some dark and some milk chocolates, we will taste them and find out which ones were delicious and the ones not so good. I bought a mixture of chocolates and invited them to sit on the nearby bench and taste them. The boys were delighted they’d be able to eat some chocolates and discuss which ones were  tastier.

I let the boys taste most of the chocolates, I only broke two small pieces to taste, it was not really about the taste it was me trying to be friendly with the boys.

When the the chocolates were eaten and we gave our verdict about which ones were tastier I stood up to leave, one of them said, ” thank you so much for letting us eat the chocolates, we were craving for chocolates today,we wanted to steal some, we are so glad you showed up you stopped us from stealing.”

I gave each a hug and told them I was proud of them!

This is a very exciting prompt, I’m thinking of so many places. Let’s see which one will be most useful to me.

I’ve made my decision, I’d like to build the tunnel to connect to my parent’s home in Comilla, Bangladesh. It would be helpful, I’d like to magically make my evil brother,his wife, and her evil sister and her husband, disappear from our parent’s home forever.

I also need the magical powers to turn them into ants so the rest of us siblings can trample them to oblivion.

Why you want to know? My evil useless brother has taken our parent’s property, he and his wife and her relatives have taken possession of the house where we grew up in our childhood.

365 Writing Prompts: Standout

When was the last time you really stood out in a crowd? Are you comfortable in that position, or do you wish you could fade into the woodwork?

Sometimes in every one’s life there are times we stand out, whether it is excelling in school, teaching, getting married, taking part in extracurricular activities or even attending a wedding reception or a school play.

I have been to a few wedding receptions not too long ago. I attended some because I was invited by the bride’s or grooms mother.

There was one I attended which took me long hours to reach, it was the wedding of my daughter’s friend. The wedding was in Calgary, going from St. John’s to Calgary took many hours by air. I boarded the flight in the early hours of the morning, I reached Calgary at 10:00 p.m. local time.

I went the next morning to the house of the bride’s mother, all her relatives were attending the wedding, I was the only guest whom they didn’t know, I stood out in the crowd, this was the first time I did not feel awkward, I was comfortable. I did not feel the urge to hide.

There was one occasion where I wished I could fade into the woodwork. I was selected to play the part of a priest in Shakespeare’s play “Twelfth Night” I tried to convince Sr. Joseph Mary I did not want to be in the play, she insisted I have to, I had only a few words to say, I was uneasy and anxious to end my part, the audience thought I did well, I wished I’d disappear ASAP!

DP Daily Prompt: Now You See Me Ranu’s post http:sabethville.wordpress.com

One morning I decided to go for a walk. I randomly selected a spot. I thought it would be perfect,the place was almost deserted. I was walking along quietly humming one of Tagore’s songs,suddenly I saw a tall figure blocking my movement. At first I was terrified and froze ,I slowly raised my head to look up. There he was with a beard so long,it came up to his waist. He knew he had startled me,he tried to lower his voice, “Woman” he said , “Do you want secret power?”  By this time I was beginning to relax,I didn’t feel threatened by him any more. I asked, “What kind of power?”  “It can help you  appear or disappear”, he said.

I pondered a moment and said ,”Okay, when will I get this power”? “Right this minute if you want.”  I agreed. He  told me to be careful,the power according to him would work from noon  to 4:30 pm. He handed me a silver charm,it had an on and off button. I was told no one must see it. I should always have it on me. I thought it’s not difficult, I can do it. “It should be a secret,” he said.

Then the long bearded fellow disappeared. I wanted to ask some more about the charm. I felt I was on top of the world with this charm.My next move was to use this unbelievable piece of silver. I went to the super market and ordered some groceries, I told the sales man ,I’d pick up at four pm. I clicked my charm to make me disappear and land at the mall. It was very busy,children came in droves to see Santa and also  hand him their wish list. I watched them and loved the interaction between the kids and Santa. No one saw me I could go anywhere in that mall. Then the worst thing happened,in my excitement I forgot to check the time. To my dismay it was 5 pm, it was past the time and the charm won’t work.

I was frantic I kept switching the on/off button. I wanted to be visible,but could not. I sat on one of the bench,all I could do was cry. I prayed for the bearded fellow to appear to get help. It was 9:45,the mall would close in fifteen minutes,I am invisible, and am unable to get my groceries. Five minutes before ten the bearded man appeared. I was ecstatic but he was not, he scolded me for a few seconds and magically transformed me back . I was visible. He asked me, “How did you like your power?” I said, “I am returning your charm,I want to be normal”. The magician disappeared and left me wondering if I made the right decision!
