Elet

A short story of a mysterious creature from ‘Peace’ planet..

Welcome back readers, it’s been months posting something. Here’s a very short story I wrote a while back in school. Happy reading 🙂

Call her Elet, an extremely unique creature. Elet belongs to a Peace planet. While working on her spacecraft, she accidentally left her hand in zero gravity and came to atmosphere of earth to which she was quite close.

Elet and creatures of peace planet had a slender blue body with an oval face. Big large eyes and small lip-less mouth formed features of their faces. They all were small in height around 4 ft tall. They did not die due to aging or health diseases. Whenever someone praised them, (they helped others) their skin renewed. And when someone criticised them a scale of their skin shed off.  So in this peace planet only kind and helpful ones lived and all of them had a grateful feeling towards each other.

When Elet came to earth the planet felt somewhat like the peace planet itself. It was beautiful, but a lil less beautiful. She saw new things. Most astonishing was long structures in which unknown creatures lived, which today we call buildings.

Elet went further and saw a small puppy. It was reaching for some leftover food near dustbin. Elet picked up the food and pat the little puppy and fed it. The very moment one scale of her skin glowed blue and renewed. Elet smiled..

A newspaper boy threw newspaper on the doorstep of nearby house. Elet was surprised to see something like that. She ran and picked it up. Suddenly the door opened and one creature, looking at Elet, began to scream at her. She just kept staring at the human figure which spoke, ” Ey! Who are you!? What kind of attire have you wore! Don’t steal my newspaper you thief!” And then Elet saw a small scale of her skin shed off

Elet tried to speak to one of them. She first approached an old man who, at first sight, got frightened seeing her face and spoke something abusing. Elet wasn’t able to understand what he said but one more scale of her skin shed off

Elet came to a small garden. This was because this hardly ever happened with her on peace planet. Two scales shed off in one day was a very tragic thing for her.

She unknowingly came to the garden of a grumpy rich man who allowed no one in his beautiful garden. It was evening time and Elet was sitting on the bench. The grumpy rich owner came for a round in his garden. Seeing an intruder he became very angry. He picked up a stick and started shouting on her. She was already sad and now she became very frightened. She ran away as one more scale shed off her skin.

Elet didn’t knew if she was able to live long in such a planet. And as her expectation, in few days she could see her skin getting dark and rusty from royal blue colour.  She cried under the tree sitting around the small bushes.

Few days later news flashed “ Blue alien structure found dead under a tree”…

‘…The world has lost its ability to appreciate things, ability to see beauty around, to be empathetic. This won’t happen if people did not speak before acknowledging things, only if they did not accepted hatred more than love and betrayal more than friendship.. ‘

Paralysed

A very small 16 line poesy, realisation that each one of us live with different perceptions.. it’s different for everyone.

I got the idea of the verse from a song by artist ‘NF’. Happy reading!

I heard you told your friends that I am just not your type

I always wondered what you expected that night

All you ever did is just controlled my life

Now I don’t sense my life, I am just paralysed


The next moment I walked out it felt too bad

But I was glad, no one really knew what I had

In fact, I’ve been investing on myself just like that

Without knowing my value, I just realised that night


So listen, if you want to show i am wrong

And criticise saying, with you I was never along

This is the reason for what I wrote up this song

To tell you there’s never a right or wrong..


It’s all about perceptions .. you see.. I’ve got my own

I feel strengthened when I think all this alone

Cause what doesn’t kills you makes you strong after all

Now I know who I am, not paralysed anymore..
