Really Breath–taking short stories with deep meanings !!

“There’s always room for a story that can transport people to another place.”  ― J.K. Rowling

When stories change in matter of words and not chapters, they are bound to leave the reader out of words. The following is a compilation of some of the most fascinating two-line deep-meaning stories, each with its own surprising twist… really Breath – taking !!

Summer break.

She was very excited today, after all the school was re-opening after a long summer break.
Now, once again, she could start selling stationary at the traffic signal to feed her family.

On the line.

She, a renowned artist and a strict mother, often scolded her 6-year-old son for he could never draw a line straight.
As he breathed slowly into the ventilator, she begged him to make one more crooked line on the ECG.

She loved being kicked.

Their love was different; She was happy every time he kicked her in the stomach.
Every time he kicked she loved him more. She waited for the time she would hold her baby for the first time.

 The final note.

“All my toys are yours,”   read her brother’s death note.

Loss or pride?

They took his father,   and only returned a flag.


The scary push.

Her step father pushed her after taking her to a height, despite her ceaseless pleading and requests.
The little girl enjoyed a swing for the first time.

Hide and seek.

I watched him searching for me, his shadow approaching closer and I crouched behind the car.
But then he found me and shouted, “I caught you! In the next game you should become the seeker.”

At the cost of three lives.

“Born to rich parents, this boy is so lucky,” exclaimed the neighbours!
Somewhere in heaven, three unborn sisters cried.

No regrets.

“You ruined my career, I was supposed to be an executive director,” she thought to herself.
The little angel held her finger tightly and she forgot everything; A mother was born.

A deadly wave.

Once a 5-year-old boy was standing barefoot in the shallow water of the ocean.
He was repeating the same sentence to the waves – “Even if you touch my feet a thousand times, I won’t forgive you for taking my parents away.”



The game.

Today, her husband beat her again. She was used to it now; and never groaned or complained.
She simply got up, put the chessboard back, determined to one day beat him in the game he had mastered.

Not everyone appreciates philosophy.

“Everyone goes with the flow… but the one who goes against it becomes someone remarkable.”
Before I could explain this to the traffic police, the man issued me a Fine….

The unspoken word. 

The hook in the door caught her sari and ripped it apart. She turned around and slapped the guy behind her.
He couldn’t express his innocence; he had suffered for being mute.

Knock knock!

I can’t believe my neighbour had the nerve to knock on my door at 3:30 AM in the morning.
Luckily for him, I was still playing my drums.

The power cut.

She was getting ready for a long, previous night study session for her graduate exam. And then there was a power cut.
That did not matter – the Braille notes were already in her hands.


“Don’t ask for change. Bring the change,”
Said the bus conductor in a very annoyed tone.

The late lottery. 

He couldn’t believe his eyes, he had just won the lottery and could now repay the loans he took from those who threatened him in the morning.
As his eyes closed slowly, he wished he hadn’t taken poison an hour ago.
