Dazzling dignity

Driven by anguish and hunger, he snatched the gold chain that bedecked the neck of the woman who stood nearby.

With the woman yelling for help and several others chasing behind, he ran across streets, thrusting the chain carefully in his pocket.

On entering the third street, his eyes froze to see a little girl performing a tight rope stunt, a group of people applauding and a few coins thrown.

The confidence in her body and the poise in her face instilled volumes in him and he suddenly resented for what he did. 

She generated an aura of dignity that left him dazzled and feeling his pocket too heavy, he hung his head down.


  1. That was SUCH a different take on the prompt. I loved this dazzling. You created a very honest and strong image of 'she' and it ought to influence each of us in some way or the other.

  2. amazing! you highlighted how hard work not only earns money, but applauds and becomes the inspiration for others ! :)

  3. That was a very nice take on the prompt. A very different angle and so nicely done

  4. Such a lovely story. Wish everyone had such conscience & rewrite their life's story.

  5. nice take on the prompt. I sincerely hope the conscience of people may never die.

  6. Some moments change our lives forever... like this rogue gone astray brought home by a little girl.. :)

  7. no necessity justifies crime, this story is a good example of this ,well done
