A Shrewd Old man

It was hell lot of rain today, i managed to walk with my stick and i sit at the corner of the house near the window. Now i can watch the rain peacefully inside the house. Rain water harvest system is ready and i stored water for 40 feet big water tank under my house. Yes, Life is not easy as before. Now at 2040 rain water is the only water source for us, all the lakes i have played when i was a kid is now full of flats and IT companies. We human has gone too far with nature isn’t it. Hmm, now I take a cigar and keep it on my lips and lit the lighter. The first smoke of the day, i remind myself about the doctors warning, Another smoke, i am dead. No! i don’t get it, here i am smoking my 100th cigarette ha ha ha , That doctor kid can’t predict my future. Doctors were so accurate at my young days. I turn left and see the breads and fruits that is been waiting for me to eat. Let me finish this first cigar of the day. Each inhale on this cold weather day, this smoke kills me, but this is a pleasure of hell that will take out my life soon. Oh! i start to cough. This cigarette is killing me. But more than that the thought of me been a smoker inspiration is more painful. Many kids saw me smoke is now smoke and i feel guilty like did i made them to smoke? nah! these kids will never listen. Just like i did. Cough again. I am trying to rest on my chair for a short sleep. I could feel the darkness fill my eyes. Let me have a nap, but remember if i don’t wake up also, you must continue to remind all the kids that smoking is damn injurious. It kills….

Thanks for reading this quick short story.

  1. Smoking is definitely not good but everyone is free to do what they want with their life! Exactly how they are free unfortunately to do harm to this beautiful world! Iโ€™m not sure weโ€™ll reach 2040 in this way…
