A Grown Child. #FridayFotoFiction

Published by knightofsteel on

Spread the love


A beard grown over a decade, a suit from the finest tailors in Italy and a watch specially customized from Switzerland. He had everything he could have ever wished for and he was everything everyone wished to be; a global business magnate with a house which looked down at the valley of Los Angeles.

It was another day for him in his high class life and he started every day with a look through the business newspapers to see how his competitors were doing but there was something different about it today.

The 40 year old man, who always seemed to be serious about his life and business, secretly read the latest edition of Magic Pot hidden behind his newspaper. He may have achieved everything one could want but the child within him wanted to read his magazine. The inner child wanted different things than adults.

How thoughtful! On second thoughts, being a child inside could have been the push for his great sucess. 🙂

    The restlessness of a child is what would make a grown man hungry for success

      opinionatedmua · October 29, 2017 at 3:37 AM

      On point my friend!

Its nice to keep that inner child alive and thriving – we all should do that

    knightofsteel · October 29, 2017 at 3:57 AM

    We should but the child slowly gets ignored and chokes out within

Ah the inner child in all of us. Pleasant take on the prompt.

Dont we all read “Calvin and Hobbes”, even today? Unless there is a child inside us that is alive, life would be so dull…
Cute twist!

    What is the point of growing up if we can’t be childish sometimes. Thank you!☺️

    Secretly we want to bring back Tinkle and all that stuff from the childhood. Missing handling the coarse paper of the comic book. I have even forgotten all the stories!!!

      knightofsteel · November 1, 2017 at 7:37 AM

      We could read through them over and over again and still not get over the nostalgia.

Hahahaha! That was an adorable facet of his personality, I’d say. Made me smile!
Thank you for writing for #FridayFotoFiction

I love this. And this is a “so me” thing to do.

    knightofsteel · November 1, 2017 at 4:40 AM

    Thank you!☺️ The inner child is what makes us strive for knowledge and gives us our curiosity.

It is so important to keep the child inside us alive to feel more human. Interesting read indeed Gayatri recently posted – The promise

Excellent…!!! Couldn’t hold back from appreciating the author today for 2 reasons:
1. All have done this gig in life. It has its unique thrill. Even today we may blog about social issues and stuff, but secretly we like to read content which we do not or do not want to confess to have read because of the Taboo attached or simply “what will people say?” sentiment

2. There is a positive transformation in FFF blogs. This blog is quite in symbolic of this change. Having read the author’s bio, I understand how difficult it can be to fake a smile or how easy it can be to feel really happy. The author feels really happy writing this piece and so does the audience!
Thanks for the good read…!

    Wow! Thank you for the kind words. I try my best to let people know more and help as many people as I can. I try and help myself by helping others.

      Yuvi Zoplus · November 1, 2017 at 8:14 AM

      Great! Write like you’ve never written before. Write for that Magic Pot. Best wishes!!!

      knightofsteel · November 1, 2017 at 8:14 AM

      Thank you so much!😊

      Yuvi Zoplus · November 1, 2017 at 10:32 AM
