55wordstory - Season 4 - Theme 19 - Solitary

From @oink1729: 

A rain enclosed late September afternoon, a window, a book, a solitary intimacy. Rain and words commingling, the rains falling, the pages turning, peace. But then the book ends and I want to see you again, and I don't know how to. Behind the fields, behind the trees, a violent unreal sunset. An unquiet mind.

From @aaroo4: 

“Ma, what does this word mean. “H e r m i t" she spelt the word slowly
Just read the book, leave me alone” said the mom
“Tell me this one thing, I promise I won’t ask again” she whispered
“Well, Hermit is someone who lives alone, like your Granpa” said the mom walking way

From @GreaterBombay: 

Behold her, single in the field…” 
“You, in the back! What’s so funny?”
-“Nothing, miss!”
…Or is it some more humble lay, …
“Boys! Laugh at Wordsworth again, you’re out of class!”
“Sorry miss!”
“...I saw her singing at her work, And o'er the sickle bending...
“That’s it! Outside! Both of you!”

From @AshieJayn: 

Have you noticed how even a lone little candle can brighten up the dark world around it?

But when it joins hands with many more such candles, it becomes a powerful medium. A single force bound by its unique glow. 

To achieve success, all you need is to light that solitary spark in your heart.

From @mrinalgupta98: 

They say humans are social animals and need to associate. They say you cannot survive alone, but she did. Not that she had a choice. Abandoned after birth, she grew up alone on the streets. She existed solitary and now she is alone on her death bed. Being crippled sure changes a lot of things.

From @meetumeetu: 

"So, heard about the water shortage this year?" She asked like any stand-up comedian would start a joke.

"Yyyepp! 30% short. I don't get these farmers though. If they've no rain, let them have water tankers." She grinned at a booing crowd. "Come on! Wouldn't Marie Antoinette say that?"

Her humor had but one fan.
