Of fans

Prompt  ….

Kapila, the reigning star of Bollywood was miserly and safety conscious. She employed Zeti (a talented psychic-detective) to screen her visitors. They were made to wait for her in this room – seldom suspecting it.

Once an influential fan forced his way in and as usual was made to wait. Mr Zeti screened the fan and found him accompanied by other-worldly beings with ulterior motives. The detective used his skills of pyrokinesis and melted the down-rod of the overhead fan.

The fan fell near the fan.

Since then all the fans are made to sit just below the un-repaired fan.

These sigils use chaos to achieve the objective for which they were devised.

Of Buttons

Queen Victoria wore only black after the death of Prince Albert in 1861. She used black jet-buttons on her somber black outfits. Her subjects imitated her with black glass-buttons.
The women rebelled against such staid fashion soon. Jackets, vests and boots with porcelain-buttons in more adventurous colors were adopted. Unmarried girls began gathering buttons to make “charm-strings”. Once a girl collected 999 buttons, her future husband would materialize with the 1000th button.
