HOPE

‘SHE’ woke up early in the morning and went to the balcony to get some fresh air. Opened the door and stepped out to see her neighbour being eaten by an ant army of each ant of the size of a car. They were Red ants. More ferocious and mighty.

The scenario freaked ‘SHE’ out. She ran inside her house but there were already more armies which were constructing the ant hill. ‘SHE’ tried to escape again using the window but the army Major tells the soldiers to catch her and throw her inside the ant hill being constructed. This would be the first sacrifice for the colony inside the house.

Every ant hill requires a sacrifice. Larger the sacrifice i.e, more intelligent the species being sacrificed more durable and stronger the hill will become and the next generation of ants will become more smarter. One soldiers pick her up a throws ‘SHE’ inside the ant hill.

‘Nooooooooo……’SHE’ shouts please don’t’ when she was thrown inside the ant hill. But instead of falling down she felt that she was going up in a very high speed. And she stops.

She realises that it wasn’t the interior of the Ant hill but a Spider web in a jungle like area surrounded with trees. And the army of huge Red ants were approaching towards her. And then a group of Tarantulas appears same size as of the ants. Large and scary. The fight begins for the sacrifice of ‘ SHE’.

The web was destroyed by the ants and the fight continued. ‘SHE’ falls on a fluffy cute greenish yellow caterpillar named ‘HOPE’ who promises to take her to the safe zone. She holds ‘HOPE’ tightly and he tells ‘SHE’ don’t worry I will save you.

After few moments the Tarantulas after defeating the Red ants realized that ‘SHE’ was gone. And they spread at all the directions to find her.

‘SHE’ and ‘HOPE’ realized that the Spiders were closer. ‘HOPE’ told ‘SHE’ to hold on and eventually he changed into a beautiful giant butterfly. See I told you to Hold on and you will be safe.

‘HOPE’ flew with his mighty strong wings and took ‘SHE’ to a safer place. And told “I will be always there for you whenever there is a difficulty”

‘SHE’ wakes up again in reality and goes to the balcony and sees a butterfly just like ‘HOPE’.

“Don’t judge each day by the harvest you reap but by the seeds that you plant.”

Robert Louis Stevenson

Fourty five year old Shelly while watching a television show went to deep thoughts within herself.

Oh God!! Why did I lose most of my loved ones? Shelly asks the question inside her head. All I tell is reality and people can’t digest,so they leave me right.

All of a sudden the volume of the TV gets increased and Shelly comes back out of her thoughts.

No!!! The says the child in the TV show was being bullied.

The channel switched to another. There the words of the protagonist were “Your reality may be correct according to you but my reality is correct according to me.”

The channel switched again where a teacher says to his student “But you insulted others just to prove yourself right.”

The transmitter changed its frequency again and the channel got changed where Shelly felt that the anchor was personally talking to her. The shows name was “Welcome to the Reality”.

Hi ! I am Tom. And here I am giving you the chance to change your past.

Shelly’s room changed into a restaurant where she sees her ex girlfriend Sofia in the same way they used to meet regularly. Shelly gets a call from her old fling again, she ignored Sofia again for her old fling and was about to leave. Shelly was about to betray Sofia again. This time Sofia says “I left you because you were not trust worthy. You got a chance to change yourself again but you opted what you opted before and I am sorry to say that loneliness is your destiny. Because you betrayed the people who trusted you and never felt guilty or repented for it.”

Before Shelly could think of anything she shifts another point of her life where she was a college student. And she was scolded by her for bunking more than 75 percent of her classes. Out of anger Shelly decides to defame the teacher by filing a fake molestation case. At the present moment also she was scolded by the teacher and thinks of doing the same again. The teacher says to her ” I scolded you because you were like a daughter to me. I scolded you because I wanted that all my students should have a bright career including you. But see what you did. What choice you made and the choice you made for your personal satisfaction ruined my entire life and family. I don’t think you deserve anyone to show you the right path because some people are full of filth inside and you are one of them”

The scenario changed again where she meets a friend with whom she was having argument regarding office related stuff. This time Shelly says to her friend you left me because we had an argument and you did not agree with me. No!! Her friend said. The argument was not even the issue at all. We all have people around us with whom our thinking do not match but we do adjust. I stopped being friends with you because you were disrespecting, dominating, arrogant, untrustworthy not only for me but for almost everyone around us. And you never realised or maybe you realized but never tried to change yourself. You always found the fault in others but never looked within yourself that how you were with others.

“Some people learn from their mistakes and some don’t. The first type of people are respected and the next type is discarded someday or the other.” Choose and act wisely what you want else it will become more hollow and meaningless. I am giving you one more chance. Now it’s your choice to rectify everything what was wrong that shouldn’t have happened. One more wrong choice and your life will be full of miseries.

Shelly gets expelled from the TV show. And again the anchor started his show “Hi ! I am Tom”. Shelly gets to see her ex again. And this time Sophia says her “People don’t change but let’s see what you intend to do”.
