"Daddy, let me ask you something, is your car lonely? Like me''
I was shocked, "What do you mean?" I looked carefully at the woman's face again and realized it was my daughter. She was in her thirties. She was a big girl now. I looked down at my hands and saw how wrinkled they were. I was an old man. Yes, George, you are an old man now. I thought, "Come on, give your daughter an answer. _ @arduilcelebren

A royal betrayal

“Why!? Was the make-up not enough!? Was I not enough? Why doesn’t he love me!?” The Queen wailed as tears rolled down her cheeks.
“Sugar, no! I do love you! You don’t understand! I didn’t really kiss the Queen of the Diamond Kingdom, the photos were edited!”
“Enough Herar! I told you not to go on that mission! I knew something like this might happen, but no, I said nothing because I trusted you. Because I loved you. But I guess I was wrong!”
The Queen called for her sons at the stairs. “Say goodbye to your father! He leaves today,” the Queen rolled a suitcase to Herar. @restcity

Birthday gone wrong

The mood of celebration was lost on everyone. All the effort put into preparation gone.
No one did anything that day. Grandma stayed in bed while people took turns in taking care of her.
She got better eventually.
The celebration was pushed forward and since Grandma was recovering she couldn't really participate.
I sat on my mum's leg while she discussed with her mother.- @dianelson

The Cheerful Vampire

It got bored because its owner (me) won't stop being the most boring person in the world and also the laziest, the most dirty and oddest person in the world! It was eleven o'clock in the morning and I hadn't even had a bath as usual. Maybe that was why everyone in the house never dare venture my room. My mom said it smelled like skunk and lacked enough sunshine, smelled like cat food and was an upgraded form of a garbage house…- @abigail04

Fond Memories Of Dada

He and his grandfather were the best of pals. Aariv saw Dada as his confidant and advisor, a relationship he was unable to replicate with his father who was always busy at work.
Dada was there for him when he returned from school with busted lips and taught him basic self-defence moves against his bullies. He played football with him every weekend and taught him how to fix things in the house. "So you can be helpful to your mother," Dada said.
Now, Dada was fading away fast before his eyes and he was helpless to stop it. Just then Dada opened his eyes and frowned for a second before glancing in Aariv's direction. His eyes brightened. @kemmyb

Story time: Once tapped, twice shy

Own photo

The woman walked away without saying a word.
I looked at the cashier realizing that it might be time to pay and it was. I turned my attention to my handbag, which to my shock - was fully unzipped - my wallet was gone! I looked around me. The old woman behind me was gone too.
I said to the cashier. “My wallet was just stolen!” - @momogrow
