Bad Omen

Ramu stepped out of home, waved his wife goodbye and left for work.

Just when he was about to cross his street a black cat crossed his path.

"Bloody cats", he cursed.

"I will take the other way", he thought and took a detour.

Few seconds into his detour, a flying sheet of metal from a nearby high-rise construction site cut his head off.

  1. That has to be the cruelest short short short story I have read. Or the shortest cruel cruel cruel story :-)

    Looks like it was the first decision that Ramu took after meeting the cat was doomed! Hopefully, there are no cats in heaven, or hell.
