A CLOUD BURST   (100 words)

By Neel Anil Panicker

Gloria watched intently as the clouds roared above.

Something that her nepholologist father had said long ago rang in her ears, “Of all the clouds, it is the Nimbostratus that one should be wary about. You sight one and soon the Earth will be covered in a dark wet blanket followed by torrential rains”.

The elements were with her this evening.

She turned back towards the bed and looked down at James, her lover of three weeks,

a beatific smile adorning his handsome face.

Her lips curled up into a crooked smile.

It was time to dispose of the body.

  1. That was a shocker! She’s so calculating, thinking of clouds over her lover’s dead body! Just a small typo – you’ve put ‘off’ when you mean ‘of’. Nicely done Neel


  2. Whoa! That one threw me. Nice job, Neel. I like nimbostratus clouds. They don’t normally last long after the rain, although, I’m sure it would have covered up the heroine’s tracks as to the murder (unless, of course, she was so good in bed, he died smiling, so it wasn’t deliberate, just inopportune). 😀
