VSS 004: Suicidal

Very Short Story (VSS) 04

He stood staring at the calm river flowing under the bridge. There was a war within. A multi-dimensional conflict was tearing him apart.

On one hand, he had a loving wife and 3 absolutely lovely and very beautiful daughters who filled his life with love and warmth. On the other hand, he had a failed crop for the third time in 4 years and he was deep in debt.

The government’s compensation to the families of the farmers committing suicide seemed like the best thing he could do for his family.

He took the biggest decision of his life.


Quick Note: Very Short Stories are approx./max. 99 word stories that i am going to write through the year. These very short stories are part of my writing resolutions of 2017. My target is to write at least 50 VSS this year.

Quick Note 2 : Just realised that 2 consecutive stories have a suicide theme to them. Pls dont be creative and attempt to read between the lines. I have none :)
