Conscience, by Sreedeep Chennamangalam (A Guest Post)

I am participating in the 6th Write Tribe Festival of Words. I hope to blog for seven days in a row. The theme for Day 6 is “Feature a Guest.” Today, I welcome one of my close friends, fellow writer and Manchester United fan Sreedeep Chennamangalam to my little space in Blogsville. He writes a drabble that he has chosen to title “Conscience”.

Conscience – A 100 Word Fiction

“No, Rose. You are not allowed to participate in the contest,” Rose’s father was adamant.

Devastated and in a fleeting moment of anger, she packed her bags and left home. Her mother cried.

That monsoon, Rose lost her mother.

A missed call on her phone diverted Rose’s attention. Father.

She immediately called back.

“Dear, is that contest still open?”

“Yes, Dad.”

“You should participate. I was afraid I would lose you if you became successful. Your mother always wanted you to do well.”

Rose was happy and sad. She quickly packed her bags to return home to her remorseful father.

You can read some more 100 word fictions – here.

Poetry & writing are to me, a breath of fresh air in a life that is sometimes covered by the smoke of sorrow or self doubt. They also become the sweets I share to celebrate when life offers me a reason to. But most of all, they are to me, my life. For each word I write is a piece of my heart, a thought that just had to find its way into the world.

  1. I am wondering which conscience is heavier here? The daughter because hse wanted something and left home and now her mom is dead? is that her fault – does she think that?
    Or the father who forbade the daughter, pushing her to rebellion? Is he guilty or is he scared of being alone?
    Interesting story. – well played out emotions, leaving the readers with loads to ponder over.

  2. A dilemma! Sometimes our eyes open to realizations only too late. Good going Sreedeep. Thanks Vinay for featuring this talented guest on your blog.
