GREED

This post has been published by me as a part of the Blog-a-Ton 40; the fortieth edition of the online marathon of Bloggers; where we decide and we write. To be part of the next edition, visit and start following Blog-a-Ton. The theme for the month is "MAKE A WISH"


On his knees, holding a sparkling metallic piece, Sameer knew it was the end. But it was irresistible. Greed had taken over. He knew that one wish cost one life of his clan. He was the last one remaining. He had everything but still, he wanted more. He couldn't stop himself.  He touched the metal, kissed it and made the wish. He fell down, dead; blood gushing out of his mouth.
***
As the police placed the corpse on the stretcher, something caught the attention of Inspector Vikram. It was a metal piece, soaked in blood. He picked it up and wiped the blood off it. Something was engraved on it. He looked closer. It read “MAKE A WISH”. He slipped the metal in his pocket discreetly.

Someone in the 'Dark World' smiled playfully.

    1. Hehe. Yes. We all fear the 'unknown'... I wrote a longer version with details too but then the details marred the whole creepy feel...
