"Congratulations!" cheered Soniya's friends as she walked towards them with stretched hands.
"I did it!" she shouted with glassy eyes and clenched fists.
Once all the congratulatory messages were through. Her mom slid a handful of feathers under the tassel of her graduation cap.
"What's this for?" Soniya inquired with wide eyes, "Shouldn't I get only one feather since I just graduated."
"A feather indicates accomplishments, and this is one of them."
"My girl, you are Compassionate, Courageous, Hardworking, Creative, and now you're a graduate proves you've accomplished your goal."
"Aah! Thank you, Mom, for being my inspiration."

"Where are you going?"
"Umm, I was planning on going to the mall," said Neena in a meek voice.
"Why? In an hour, it'll be time for my tea." said the master authoritatively, "And won't the endless walking in the mall make you tired?"
There was silence.
"Go and rest till your next chore rather than galavanting." said the 65-year-old lady in a commanding tone.
Neena gave out a long sigh as she dragged her feet into the 4*4 room, " I wish I had not taken an advance from my master. I'm on a leash until six months."

In November, my family and I decided to trek the redwoods.
The fog, chirp of birds, and redwoods combined to create a calm, moist environment, like the cloud forests.
Just then, a buzzing noise caught our attention, and it started getting louder with each second.
"What's that noise?" asked my son.
We looked yonder and saw a grey cloud coming our way.
"Duck" was my instant command.
We gave way to them. The swarm of insects passed by us within seconds as if they were on a mission.
They didn't bother us since we didn't disturb their travel plans.
In 99 words (no more, no less), write a story that includes tiny flying insects. Think about how the insects shape the scene or add to the action. Go where the prompt leads!

"So, Monica, when is the D-day?"
"Soon," she said with a chirp.
I asked anxiously, "Is it that soon that we don't have time to throw you a bachelorette party?"
"Nah! we always have time for a girl's party," she said with a high five.
Within that week, I arranged a flower theme party and invited all her girlfriends.
That particular evening flowers of all shapes and sizes filled the room.
We all were clucking around like hens and trodding in floral dresses.
The to-be bride had a beautiful floral crown, and the bees were having a feast.

"Aargh, my hands are dirty." cried a five-year-old Pedro as he raises them in the air and flaps them irritatingly.
"That's alright," came the mom to his rescue as she dusted them off and kissed those fingertips, "Look at the plant you just put in the soil."
Little Pedro saw the marigold and went his way.
A week went by; the tiny plant had two new buds.
Pedro was noticing it all this while.
Then one fine day, mom saw him bend over and kiss the flower.
"The flower is so happy," he said as he clapped his hands.
