365 Writing Prompts:The excitement never ends

Tell us about the last thing you got excited about–butterflies-in-the-stomach, giggling, can’t- wait excited.

I was visiting Dhaka ,Bangladesh after a few years. I hadn’t seen my siblings for all that time. It was a long flight it didn’t matter to me the thought I’d have the opportunity to see my siblings and their children excited me the most, every time the plane landed at a stop I felt I was getting closer to home.

Finally the plane landed at Dhaka airport, I couldn’t wait to get out and walk into the building where my sister was waiting. I filled in some forms, picked up my luggage and met my other siblings waiting for me in the car.

After going through a truly crazy traffic we finally reached home.

Although I lost many hours of sleep while traveling, I didn’t mind staying up and catching up on all the stories I wasn’t a part of!

365 Writing Prompts: Life line

You’re on a long flight, and a palm reader sitting next to you insists she read your palm.You hesitate, but agree. What does she tell you?

I am skeptical about letting anyone reading my palm, the palm reader was  adamant, I gave in. She held my palm and gave me a lesson on what the lines are called. I was irritated but tried to be cordial, I waited for her to start reading my palm.

She started reading my palm, she told me the number of brothers and sisters I had, what they do for a living, that my mom raised us, my father passed away when I was very young. By this time I felt she really is a palm reader and a good one.

She asked me if she could continue, by this time my curiosity increased I said , “Please do.”

Among other things she said I’d settle in a country other than my own, when I asked her how she knew that, she said there is a line that shows it.

She was planning to say more, the announcement from the flight attendant that the flight was about to land, and we should fasten our seat belts and put our seats in the upright position made her stop which left me wondering, where I’d live?
