Twist of Fate

They have been plotting for more than a week now. They believe me to be dumber than I actually am. I notice the abrupt change of topic when I go near them – my best friend, and my wife.

They are planning to finish me, and elope. I was not surprised when he blindfolded me and brought me down from my room. I surprised them by tripping on purpose to fall down the staircase and felt a searing pain.

Shame, he had to fall. We had been planning so much for his birthday. I don’t think he would enjoy his cake now that his ankle is in a twist.

    1. Yeah. That is so so true. Kinda reminds me of a quote in Tamil which goes:
      கண்ணால் பார்ப்பதும் பொய்; காதால் கேட்பதும் பொய்; தீர விசாரிப்பதே மெய்.
      and means,
      What you see is false; what you hear is false; only an indepth analysis is the truth.
