Abandoned House(Flash Fiction for Aspiring Writers)



“Hello Sir,I own the photo studio right across the road. This house was abandoned for several years. It looks like you are renovating it now.  Are you moving back?“

“Yes. I was overseas all these years looking after my business. My grandfather had built the house and I have some fond memories growing up here: those carefree days with my parents, those joyful festivals with a house full of relatives and my wedding day when the entire palace was extravagantly decorated. Later my parents passed away, I went abroad and there was no one to take care of this house. Now that I have retired, I want to stay here for the rest of my life.”

“Welcome Sir. I’m happy that you are moving back” .The photographer faked a huge smile and left to his studio thinking “All these days, people came to my studio because they wanted me to take pictures in front of this magnificent house. Now that the family is moving back, I doubt how many will still come to my studio!”

  1. Changes in another person’s life can affect your life, but you just have to deal with it like anything else. We have no guarantees that what is working for us now will always work for us. Life is full of adjustments. At least he had use of the guy’s house for a while to help his business, now he needs to come up with another idea.

I'm all ears. Tell me.
