Lucky


"Hello, I'm Lucky, from Bangalore and I'm really excited to be a part of this trek" I said proudly, looking at the monstrous peak in front of me.

"Hahaha Lucky, what a silly name", they all laughed in unison.

Thirteen of us walked up with our torches and support sticks, in the middle of the night, led by a guide. Suddenly, there was a rumble and we saw a huge bunch of rocks falling down from the peak, approaching us.

In about three minutes, all of us were dead, except me.

This five sentence fiction is written for the topic 'Lucky' at Lillie McFerrin Writes.

  1. Its decided. I am naming myself lucky for these adventure trips. I just fear dying like that. You know what? Since I am studying these days, I usually don't have time for blogging so when I just get to bed to sleep, I use my cell (now I know how to use internet from my cell phone!) and read blogs but mostly your blog. Recently, I read all your blogs but didn't comment! I think I have commented on all the ones I read the other night. Have an awesome day. :)

  5. The last thought of others would have been the same. Lucky was named so for a reason, I guess!
