Grounded #FridayFictioneers

Kim, his inseparable elder sister yelled –

´Sean! You forgot to close the door. Come back, lil fella!´

Kim wouldn´t tolerate a ´No´ to her whimsical demands. Being grounded by her was a big part of his childhood memory. Once, he was asked to bite into the hottest chilli peppers till his nose bled. Another time, he stripped full monty before removing the snow.

Then, he cried!

Today, he laughed at the memory with tears of grief streaming down his face. 

Lil´Kim was grounded for life before it could take flight following that fatal accident at the adventure park.

(Word Count: 100)

    • Hi Iain! It could go either ways even though my original vision was that she´s no more. A brother reminiscing the lost memories of his deceased sister with fondness and grief. Thank you so much..I always love to hear the reader´s interpretations. Keep reading! Love and Cheers! 🙂

  1. You tell your sad story with a sequence of bright anecdotes to illustrate the close relationship between Kim and Sean, and conclude it with a shockingly final sentence. It’s hard to do that well, but you’ve succeeded admirably. Kudos!

    • Hi Anurag! Thank you so much for the lovely words of appreciation. Kim is the elder sister. It could be interpreted either ways even though my original version suggests the death of Kim. Sean, the brother reminiscing the lost memories of Kim, his deceased sister with fondness and grief. Keep reading! Love and Cheers! 🙂

    • Hi Bjorn! Lol..yes she was one domineering frustrating child. But in hindsight, her antics were amusing and sweet…and kids can be nasty in their own immature way. Life is complex..people are complex and that´s what makes it all so interesting. Keep reading and thank you so much for sharing your thoughts on this one. Cheers 🙂

    • Hi Dale! Yes! The first two lines can be misleading. For a change unfortunately, it was Kim´s turn to get grounded. That was the twist in the plot. Children can be pretty domineering and nasty in their immature ways…but when looked in hindsight, those torturous memories become amusing and sweet. Keep reading and thank you so much for sharing your thoughts. Love and Cheers 🙂
