100 Word Stories

PILLION

13 Dec 2018

She was 67 when she first learned how to drive, from the pillion seat of Ah Hock’s motorised wheelchair.

For him, this was just a smaller version of the forklift he had deftly manoeuvred for thirty years, stacking crates of appliances at the warehouse in Defu Lane, until one day they told him that a machine would be replacing him.

Life is now this wheelchair for his broken heart.

At least, he can still lift her spirits up in joy, and he feels her smiling when she reaches over to wrench the wheel left, and right. 

100 Word Stories is a weekly series featuring flash fiction by Mackerel and photographs by Daniel Tan.
