Hope...



His eyelids seem to weigh a lifetime.It would take him more than willpower to get them open.

"I am dead.And this is my life after death", he said aloud. With this thought ringing in his head, he opened his eyes.A bright light, with the power of a thousand needles pierced his eyes.He lifted a hand and shielded it.The world, a world he believed no longer existed, came into focus.

"No you aint.Thats just the Operating Light over your head and nothing heavenly."

"I am not??"

"Nope!! you tried real hard though. Jumping in front of a car wasn't wise.Should ave tried a highrise maybe.You know..."

"Shut up for a second will you??How are you feeling?"This time the second guy spoke.Both of them had been the only people in his field of vision since he had opened his eyes.The one talking seemed to be in command.The other, though a little frail, looked more angelic.

"Oh me?I feel fine...never been better...dont know..there is some sort of a disconnect that I cant figure..."

"There is NO disconnect", this time a little more curt."just rest a while and you will be fine...and yeah you are alive...so (*thinking*) thank God!!yeah why not?Thank GOD!"

"um ok...I guess I will.Thanks guys."

The Talking Guy's face broke into a grin."Ah its ok. You could always thank later.Everyone does.Well, most do.Maybe not most...but ah, for now, rest, ok?We will meet you again.We will leave now."

With these words they walked out of the Operation Theatre.As soon as they stepped out, the frail guy burst out, "You think its funny??Its not always funny!!You really need to understand that!!"

Talking Guy's face remained contorted with that grin.

"Why so serious?", he said and dug into his pocket.Took out a cigerette and lighted it.As wisps of smoke curled from his lips, he turned to the Frail Guy, grin in place.He looked up and said;

"Dont you think its easier to fool people when they are dead?"

Hiren said...

innovative thoughts dude ... mast thaa ... the story itself was cool .... and "Why so serious ???" made it even more awesome :)

Heath Ledger has made "The Joker" immortal and his dialogues a cult ... "Do you wanna know why I use a knife? Guns are too quick. You can't savor all the ... little ... emotions." :-)

Av. said...

It's not dull, nor is it "LOL".
But, it's oddly and amusingly twisted, which's s theme I didn't know one could consciously capture and convert into a blog post.
Hats off t'you.

And also, to our dearest love, Heath Ledger; RIP.

Gagan said...

Dear Scribblers inc,
I love the fact that you dedicated it to Mr. Heath Ledger, but I didnt like the fact that you dedicated it to him because you liked him in 1 film....he was a great actor..an artist....and had done phenominal roles in the past that had touched many and made a difference to even more....

Anyway, like I always say....you are my todays Irving Wallace....and from that anonymous phone call that I ade to ur office a long time ago....you have definately come a long way!!!!

Keep rockig brother!
