55 word story: Living in grave



“Make it Rs 7,000,” my dad bargained. “We didn’t approach anyone else. Trust you completely. And I promise to give you the contract in future as well.”

I squirmed in darkness hanging on his every word.

“Deal,” the doctor grinned.

My mom sat with pursed lips, knowing well that her womb shall be my grave.
