Tiny Tale (5)

It has been an extremely busy week here for me. And it has been a terrible one in many ways. But it has been a memorable one too. All that went wrong, all that made me strong – all of it will be remembered and will stay with me forever.

With the posts on the TOI Heritage Walks now over, I have been wondering about what to write. Writing a series is a lot of fun and is on some level easier than writing independent posts. You have something to look forward to, you have something to write about, you have a thread that you can pursue from post to post. But now I am left with an emptiness in my heart and brain! While I was contemplating on the content, this tiny tale took birth and then I knew exactly what I want to write about.


They gave her the cloth robe to change into. They closed the door behind them as they left her alone. She looked around. The sight of needles and the familiar smell of disinfectants weakened her.Β She prayed for it to be the last dose of chemotherapy ever.

Little did she know that the wish would be Granted!


I hope you liked this one. Share your thoughts in the comments section below. Looking forward to hearing from you.

  1. “All that went wrong, all that made me strong” I love how you said it and it rhymes and rolls off the tongue very nicely. Hope that all is okay now and will be okay. Some times days can be frustrating but we just have to go along with it.

    Love this tiny tale! It started off quiet sad and worrying, and then turned out into something very uplifting at the end. I like the message too – that everything will be okay in the end. I can relate to your tiny tale. A few months back I was in and out of the hospital a lot. The sight and “importance” of doctors was something I saw almost every week…but you know, with the challenging times come good times. Good luck with your next writing escapade πŸ™‚

    1. Hi mabel,
      All is well on my end as of now and I hope it stays this way for a while till I am ready for the next battle. πŸ™‚
      I think I like the way this tale has turned out. Honestly, I didn’t mean for it to be a happy ending. But it’s amazing that it can be perceived as one. Basically, one can see in this tale what one would like to see. The paradox of the end has made it more special for me. Thank you for pointing it out and have a wonderful day! Cheers! πŸ™‚

      1. Yes, I really thought it was a happy ending – being thankful for what you already have. Love how you can express so much emotion and possibilities in so few words. Very good writing and looking forward to the next one πŸ™‚


      2. You are an eternally positive person Mabel..or that’s what I think from what you’ve interpreted out of the tale.
        And thank you for saying such lovely words about my writing. I hope I can continue to write some good stuff here πŸ™‚

    1. I love that this tale can be perceived in different ways…I hadn’t quite anticipated that myself (my stupidity though).
      I have to be honest with you Anne, I had written the tale to mean her death… 😦

  2. The sickness induced the will to survive which she didn’t discover until the predicament was life or death. I enjoyed your post.

    1. Yes, another series is definitely on my mind. But I am still looking for the perfect topic. And it takes a bit of research to write a good series too…so I’m working on it.
      I am happy that you enjoyed this tale. πŸ™‚ Have a great day ahead J!
