Yin-Yang -#AtoZChallenge @AprilA2Z

Yin Yang, #AtoZchallenge, #FlashFiction

Michael writhed in pain as the bullies kicked him. Once in the gut, twice in the shins and once in his head.

He lay there, bruised, bleeding and gasping for breath as they walked away, contempt writ large on their smug faces.

After what seemed like eternity, a group of girls walked past and stopped in horror at the sight before them. One of them rushed forward to pick up Michael’s head and cradle it in her lap, as the others whipped out hankies to mop the blood on his cheeks and bottles of water to bathe his wounds.

Suddenly, Michael opened his eyes and mumbled , ‘P-p-p pen’. The girls exchanged glances and bent closer to him. Gasping, he repeated, ‘Pen.’

One girl unscrewed a pen and handed it over. Michael shook his head and said, ‘ Can you write for me?’

‘Sure,’ she responded in a bewildered tone. ‘What should I write?’

‘A poem calledΒ  Battle scars. I’d like to forgive my enemies one day and this will help me remember why.’

  1. Forgiving the ones who have wrong you is not something too many people are able to do. And must say that’s a beautiful poem :).

  2. Forgiveness is noblest thing of all and Michael been a large hearted person did the right thing of forgiving the bullies.Wonderful Story.?

    1. Yes Vinitha! Forgiveness is something that doesn’t come easily to the selfish. Only the wise and brave at heart can forgive someone..
      Another amazing piece, but this one didn’t have a dramatic ending like the previous ones!
      Anyways, tomorrow’s gonna be the last in the series of 26.. Fingers crossed! πŸ™‚
