Short Story

A 23 years old young, trying hard to paint his first painting ever, is lost in his own world of colors. Though he has never struck the brushes over canvas before, but still he makes sure to bring the best out of him to be an artist. His name is Bobby and he is a computer artist oh, actually he is computer scientist. He lives in a small home where other family members do not really appreciate painting.

He is currently working on his first painting and desires to finish it before his brother named Sunny, who is working abroad, arrives in Pakistan. Sunny really loves paintings and he had painted a lot before getting engaged with a business job. Sunny has decided to move back to Pakistan permanently. Excited Bobby when listens about the Sunny moving back permanently to Pakistan makes a wish to God.

” Dear God, I wish that my brother can not come until my Painting is not completed”

Bobby did not know, but actually his wish to finish his painting before his brother arriveshad come true in the sky. He started painting when his brother decided to come Pakistan. Bobby was very excited and worked very enthusiastically on stroking colors freely. So was his brother who had given leaving notification to boss and sent formal documents for process.  The painting was quiet simple; it was a vintage, damaged car lying in a deserted area, under blue sky. Bobby sketched the image and started spreading layers of paint over canvas in different sessions.  Bobby told his brother on cell phone that he has been working on a painting and wishes to finish it before Sunny arrives.

Bobby gets up early in the morning to finish the painting because couples of days were left for his brother to come Pakistan. He makes tea for himself and goes to work place. Bobby gets shocked to see that painting is missing from the place. He runs here and there to find it, if mistakenly someone has kept it somewhere else but sadly he fails to find it. Bobby calls Sunny to tell story. Sunny also tells him bad news of losing formal documents and he could not come back until those documents were recovered.

—-If you want a sad ending then read in Red at the end of page—

—-if you want some excitement read in Blue—

Bobby does not give up and put a FIR in police station. Police comes for investigation and asks about the family members and servants coming in the house. Police had doubt over the maid working but Bobby never understood why she would steal a painting from his house. Police’s doubt comes true and painting is found from maid’s home. She claims that she did not steal the painting but her son who is a desperate painter stole it to work on it. Finally bobby gets the painting but sadly the painting was not the same. The maid’s son was obsessed with ancient wars and since the painting already showed a broken vintage car, he had painted a war in the painting where enormous number of people were fighting while wearing iron shields and underwear with swords. Poor Bobby could not do anything with the painting and decided to show poor piece of work to his brother Sunny when he comes.

After couple of days —-

Bobby’s phone rings early in the morning; half sleepy bobby picks up the phone ..

“hello” Bobby says;

“hey it is me, listen I will be arriving Pakistan in the evening” –Sunny says;

“Yeah, Did you get the formal documents?”-  Bobby asks

“I will tell you the story as I arrive there” –Sunny says

Bobby gets up with excitement that he will show the painting to his brother. He decides to take the painting to the airport. Bobby reaches airport 20 minutes before the flight. He sits on waiting seat looking at the painting with half smile and wondering what will he tell his brother for the war that he has painted. The painting had a war head leader holding sword, wearing an iron shield and underwear and a short man with the same dress but different sword.

As bobby turns his eyes out of the painting what he sees the same warrior guy coming in front of him, he looks at the painting and looks up and is shocked to see the same painted leader guy with the sword is coming. Bobby rubs his eyes and hit his head to make sure he was not dreaming. After a while short guy with same war dress joins him as illustrated in the painting and pieces of broken vintage cars are also brought in the huge trolleys. Bobby keeps wondering, how the hell painting could be so real. After looking closely Bobby realizes that his brother Sunny is in the dress of the leader with iron shield and underwear and coming towards him. Suddenly Bobby’s wish clicks in his mind that he had wished to finish the painting before his brother and since painting was messed up, his brother…………………..$$@#@@##…. OH MY GOOOOOOOOOODDDDD!!!!!!!!!!!!

His brother Sunny hugs him warmly and scared Bobby starts crying, telling his brother that all was his fault that he should not have made a wish to God. Sunny wonders that what the heck Bobby is talking about. Bobby asks Sunny why he is dressed up like warriors. Sunny tells the story that he had lost his formal documents on the day when Bobby’s painting was stolen but when bobby was telling about the recovery of stolen painting on the phone, sad Sunny could not tell his brother that his documents were lost and he could not come back to Pakistan; While talking to Bobby, Sunny saw a group of play performer who had a truck, displaying advertisement of performing warriors show at Pakistan. Sunny had contacted them and told the story of documents and they asked him to come with them in a team of Play performer so he had to wear those Iron shield and underwear.

Bobby hugs Sunny and tells him not to leave him again and Bobby gets the lesson to think before making a wish. Now Bobby and Sunny lives happily except fighting on eggs and Bobby has left painting any more.

Sad Ending…

Because of bobby’s wish, sunny could not come, because bobby’s painting was stolen, so were Sunny’s formal documents.
