Cover up!

Prompt  ….



The slum across the road was bulldozed yesterday. Little Wu had watched it from his balcony. He saw Kai and his sister being pushed aside; their belongings scatter as mud walls of his house fell. Kai’s parents running helter-skelter to save what they could. Wu wanted to help but the hundreds of men in Khaki scared him. He asked his father to help them but he said – Good riddance.

He knew a blue or green canvas with some eco-friendly painting would hide the profanation – just like the one this side of road adjacent to their high rise.
