The Sunshine - Drabble ( 100 word story )
Religious fundamentalists poisoned his mind which was adequate to prepare him for suicide bombing in a crowded restaurant. He tied explosives around his body and went to the spot.
He sat on an empty table and started the timer. Suddenly sunshine coming from a crisscross wooden wall,gaps of which were filled with colored bottles struck him and bedazzled his eyes. Flashbacks of his children came in front of his eyes similar to those present in the restaurant. He switched off the timer and realized that his religion condemns killing of innocents and those instigating him were parasite for religion.
