100 List Challenge: Broken Pieces

The Crying Traveler
Kalana thought about all the things that he had been through.

All the happiness, the bliss and the memories that they have created, and the pain, suffering and sadness that followed behind.

They were all broken pieces, like shards of glass, like things he should've discarded but didn't have the heart to do so.

He still clung onto the memories, and denied them whenever others urged them to surface.

He had to do it. He had no choice.

It's for the sake of his beloved.


Love of the Damned
Faira and Leon ran to the kitchen when they heard a loud shatter of glasses.

There, in the middle of the kitchen floor, were broken pieces of Leon's favourite china, and Trisha and Damien desperate to figure out what to do.

"Why did you break the plates for??" Damien exclaimed, looking at the broken china in dread.

"I didn't mean it~!" Trisha broke into tears. "I wanna make hot chocolate for Mommy and Auntie Fai~!"

"These are your Mommy's special plates, you know~?"

"Mommy is going to spank me~!" Trisha wailed, genuinely upset at what she had done.

"Shh~! Don't let your Mommy hear you. We'll figure this out."

"Well, at least they're OK, right?" Fai whispered to Leon. "We can always get new china in eBay."

Leon didn't know whether feel relieved or upset.
