The plane descended very fast, the hairs at the nape of Daniel’s head stood on end, ‘is this the end?’ he thought desperately, But there was nothing he or the captain of the plane could do as the pilot and co pilot battled with the controls. The voice of the air hostess was high-pitched as she tried to calm the fearful passengers.
In the midst of the chaos. One man sat unperturbed, trying to drink from the can of coke in his hands though the contents spilled all over him. Daniel noticed the strange man, and as the man munched away, eating as if he was in a picnic, Daniel screamed,
‘Hey mister, aren’t you afraid?’
‘Afraid of what?’ the man asked, a smile on his face.
‘We are all going to die!’ Daniel would have loved to punch the smirk off the man’s face but he was risking his life for even talking.
‘Yes, I know,’ the man said with a cheeky grin, ‘You came naked and death smiles at us all, the only thing you can do is to smile back, besides, the pilot is my friend, he’s going to land this plane safely if it’s the last thing he does.’
And then there was a loud bang…
Twenty hours later, Daniel woke up in a hospital, he looked round and heave a deep sigh of relief, he was alive, that was the only thing that mattered to him. The door of the room opened and the same man he spoke to on the plane entered, his grin was still in place.
‘I told you my friend would land the plane, and nobody died!’
The man left and Daniel closed his eyes as the man’s words rang shrilly in his mind, ‘You came naked…’
Life is not so short as I used to say, we live in a timeless universe, everything around us pulsates with power. Look at Shakespeare, he’s still alive today, through his works. When we are no more, believe me, we’ll still be living, in the minds of others. Therefore, Let us live well!
The short story above is just a figment of my imagination and not an excerpt from ‘Tales Of Five Lies.’
I was playing around with Photoshop yesterday and changed the cover of ‘Tales Of Five Lies,’ What do you think?
Here’s the link, http://www.amazon.co.uk/Tales-Of-Five-Lies-ebook/dp/B0096W3PZ0/ref=tmm_kin_title_0
I’m working offline a lot now, organising and promoting ‘The Feet Of Darkness’ and sales have been great! :). It’s nice writing a short story again and I’ll go back to reading more blogs! Wherever in the world you are, enjoy the rest of your day!
Much love. 🙂

I love this! JB, thanks for reflagging! Sounds gripping. We came in naked, and so we might…leave…or not. Happy writing!
Thanks for your kind comment, I’m glad you like the story!
Ms. Seyi Sandra David is so very talented a writer, glad you followed me here Ms. Somer.
Giggling … I hate lies … There is no point in lying … The truth will catch up with lies one day … And … as far as i am concerned … “A promise made is a promise kept forever” …
The truth always reveal itself, no matter how long it takes! Thanks for your visit Ms Folasade, it’s appreciated!
Love it! Going to purchase it on amazon : )

Congratulations on the book. Here’s wishing you great luck.
Thank you so much for stopping by and for your kind comment! I sure need it!
Thanks so much for your short story, it got me thinking about how we place so much emphasis on how our life appears to be forgetting to just live the best you can and not worrying about things we have no control over. Look at people like Bob Marley, they still live in their “life” albeit being physically dead. Congratulations on your book 😀
Thanks Biggie for that thoughtful comment! You’re right about that assertion, people tend to forget what’s expedient while they chase after shadows. Thanks for stopping by!
You’re welcome. Blessings to you too 🙂
Love this short story. I do like happy endings. 🙂

Our loved ones never really die until we die because they are treasured in our thoughts. Love this story.
