Beauty in a Dust


Spider silk clung at the doors, over the windows, and over everything she had left behind. 

“Who she Papa”, asked an inquisitive Raima who was engrossed to his father 40 years old story.



"She was Princess Maria, last heir of throne. I visited her ill maintained 123 years old palace."

"That day, when I discovered the beauty, She became my love; many restricted me to take her away."

“They were looking, but I didn’t care. I ran to her anyway; handed the research papers took away the archetypal antique clock to it’s right place; well maintained antique museum", narrated Tapan.

Photo Prompt - J Hardy Caroll


Word Count - #100 Words

  21. Picture prompts and the word counts stopping at 100, all challenges our cerebral prowess. The little tale to tell and get the twist when the old clock clicks. You have timed the plotting of the story to subtly strike with the reader.
    :D
