Tiny Story: The Silence

I am reblogging this post from Shaily in my new series of ‘A Reblog Offer’

Short Stories | Fish-eye Perspective

“Hey Girl!”

(Silence)

“What’s wrong?”

(Silence)

“I hope you did not give in to your mother’s threat. She thinks marrying a man will ‘cure’ you. But if you can’t bear the touch…”

(A gasp and silence)

“Look, I know! The entire group knows and we are okay!”

(A sigh and silence)

“I have a spare room if your mother doesn’t understand.”

(After a long silence) “Can you call an ambulance, fast?”

-Based on a true story

  1. Thank you for the reblog, Pete! I hope it reaches a lot of people. It is based on true stories of people who’s parents told them to ‘suck it up’ or ‘man up’ believing that it would ‘cure’ them or ‘save’ them.
