Second Chance


With shaky steps, Manohar stepped on to the stage. One of his assistants was perched against a wall a few feet away. Another blindfolded him and handed the knife.

Before panic could unsettle his nerves, he swirled the knife in one fleeting motion. The loud cheers from the crowd told him that he had succeeded.

He removed the blindfold. The guilt of the past, when in a drunken stupor, he had missed the mark and fatally killed his assistant, still haunted him. After 12 years in jail, he had once again wanted to be the ace marksman he was known as.



I'm an avid reader and writer. Reading gets me a feeling of understanding the world through different perspectives and writing helps me outline my thoughts from the cobwebs that the mind has trapped it in!
