A prompt photo is provided to be used as a base to the story (stories in 100-175 words or less) and each story should have a beginning, a middle, and an end.
Got it! So here’s my entry:-
It was a normal household, he obligated to a office routine solemnising work while she was a homemaker extraordinaire with 2 hooligan kids and the peripherals like Running errands, cleaning dishes and laundry.
Everyday, he would return back to a neat manicured home and his tiny warriors actively engaged in their paraphernalia.
She was a pro homemaker, he would still ask her often – “What did you do today? There wasnt anything for you to do!”
Something stimulated her. The next day when he returned, the house doors were left open abondoned. He hurried to check inside. The sitting room was a clutter warehouse with bedsheets, tissue rolls all scattered open, inter twingled in lethargy. It seemed like the house had been ransacked or burglarized. What ifs -ran through his mind and gaping in horror, he ricketed forward calling his wife in hyper ventilation mode.
She was sitting calmly while her 2 muskeeters romped in dirt. Surprised, he asked hurriedly, “what happened here?”
In a serene mood, she replied – “I didnt do anything today!”
