They shared the bench.

“Not for you”. She took a sip. “Anyway, your water-harmony is a muss. Do not eat or drink before you finish the treatment.”

She filled a empty water-bottle from the pond, gurgled it and put it in her bag. “I have a few cookies – I shall share with you after… “. She ate them one by one.

He shed his clothes and jumped into the water – a feeling of intruder engulfed him. The water and the enemy were out to get him.

By-and-by the vulnerability decreased as he struggled to stay afloat.

Finally he won!

The Sunday Yarn ~ Paradise!

Prompt ~

A "pay per view" telescope looking out to sea

*

The telescope offered a view of large garden on a far-off island. Colorful fruit hung from the trees. Palaces of gold studded with wonderful gems could be seen scattered around. Streams of milk, honey, wine and water crisscrossed the garden. Beautiful girls and young men made music, sang and danced. These men & women were expert entertainers; they caressed, flattered and provided carnal satisfaction to the elite there.

It was a sensual paradise.

Most of the viewers paid double for a repeat view focusing on the items of their interest. A third view cost double of the second view and so on.

Many opted for repeated views. They walked back with a yearning for a life on the island.

A man in a black suit approached one of the repeat-viewer. After a long discussion, the viewer signed a set of documents.

A few days later he found himself in paradise but was soon dispatched to one of the sheds where he found a group of persons assembling and dissembling the many models of Kalashnikov.

A walk across Thames

Prompt -

2014-10-13 - BW Beacham

Finish the story that begins with:  The people waved at him from the bridge below.

The people waved at him from the bridge below – they cheered him across the waters.

It is a bloody miracle. One said.

True. I shall never forget this 25th day of June in the year 2011 of our Lord. Another replied.

It is just another illusion of Steve. A skeptical spectator commented.

What illusion ….. is the Thames an illusion or Steve gliding over the water an illusion?

Scared Steve remembered his teacher telling him – there is a prerequisite for aligning with water one should be able to breathe it. There is always an alternative – I shall just imagine a bridge and walk across it and he stepped into the Thames.

Oblivious of the crowd he made it half way across the stretch of the river opposite to the Houses of Parliament in London. The bridge disappeared as a River Police yanked him off the waters.

The Expanding Orbit!

Prompt ~

undefined

Copyright – Douglas M. MacIlroy

Egyptians, Mayans, Babylonians besides many others developed calendars based upon a 360-day year. Long-long ago the earth did have an orbit of precisely 360-day year.

As the earth hardened and the universe expanded – the orbit adjusted to changing gravity. The year lengthened to the present 365.4 days. This was responsible for the evolution of animals.

Life developed in sea and evolved to shelled creatures. A new shell-form developed for each second of increase. Most of these vanished along with the dinosaurs 66m years ago.

The distortion of time and its impact is depicted in this cast. The guide explained.

The Sunday Yarn ~ Unneccessary demolition!

Prompt ~

Demolition of an old building.

*

‘Tools and machines do not demolish ….. there is always a motive behind it;  and often it can be labeled as human greed.’ The prompt had triggered one of Dom’s moods.
I – What is so special about it?
D – The cost.
I – Yes, it is expensive.
D – It is not about rupees and dollars.
I – (?)
D – The pollution and depletion of our natural resources – environmental costs.
I – So we make all old buildings a heritage site (wink).
D – No! Deconstruct, refurbish and recycle rather than demolish.
I – You really think it is a solution.
D – Yes, unless it is a quest for occult ritualistic sacrifice for ulterior motives.
I – (?)
D –Like the 9/11 demolition of twin towers.
