{100 word story in response to Photo prompt }

‘It was a palace! And, after the war, it became a pyramid!’

As a child, grandma’s depiction of our house amazed me.

Curiosity triggered me later.

‘You wouldn’t recognize anything there!’ Grandma warned. But I didn’t quit.

There, the remains proved her right. With each moment, hatred towards the enemies rushed through my veins.

View of a chair with a folded tarpaulin, amidst the stubble.

It was a map. The names of the soldiers, their families and homes were legibly marked.

Some night,some soldier might have sat on that chair, and hoped of joining his family.

My hatred slowly,stiffly melted away.
