A Grown Child. #FridayFotoFiction


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.

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

    1. 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!!!

  2. 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…!
