What heartwarming short story can you write in less than 100 words?

About ten years ago, a very successful young executive named Josh was traveling down a street in a Chicago neighborhood. He was going too fast in his sleek 12-cylinder black Jaguar XKE, which was only two months old.

He was watching for children shooting out of the parked cars and slowed down when he thought he saw something.

When his car passed, no kid was shot out, but a brick went flying and ... BOOM! It crashed into the Jaguar's shiny black side door! SHRIEK…!!!! Brakes hit! The gears went into reverse and the tires spun the Jaguar madly toward where the brick had been thrown.

About ten years ago, a very successful young executive named Josh was traveling down a street in a Chicago neighborhood. He was going too fast in his sleek 12-cylinder black Jaguar XKE, which was only two months old.

He was watching for children shooting out of the parked cars and slowed down when he thought he saw something.

When his car passed, no kid was shot out, but a brick went flying and ... BOOM! It crashed into the Jaguar's shiny black side door! SHRIEK…!!!! Brakes hit! The gears went into reverse and the tires spun the Jaguar madly toward where the brick had been thrown.
Josh jumped out of the car, grabbed the boy, and shoved him into a parked car. He yelled at the boy: “What was all that and who are you? What the hell are you doing? Building a puff of steam, he continued. “That's my new Jaguar, that brick you threw is going to cost you a lot of money. Why did you throw it away?

“Please, sir, please… I'm sorry! I didn't know what else to do! "pleaded the young man." I threw the brick because no one else would stop!

Tears trickled down the boy's chin as he pointed around the parked car. "He's my brother, sir," he said. "He got off the sidewalk and fell out of his wheelchair and I can't get him up." Sobbing, the boy asked the executive, “Could you help me get back to his wheelchair? He's hurt and he's too heavy for me. "

Beyond words, the young executive desperately tried to swallow the rapidly swelling lump in his throat. With an effort, he lifted the young man back into the wheelchair, took out his handkerchief and cleaned the scrapes and cuts, checking that everything was going to be fine. Then he saw the younger brother push him down the sidewalk toward his house.

It was a long way back to the sleek, shiny black 12-cylinder Jaguar XKE, a long slow way. Josh never fixed the side door on his Jaguar. He kept the dent to remind you not to go through life so fast that someone has to throw a brick at you to get your attention.

Some bricks are softer than others. Feel the bricks of life coming your way. In the hustle and bustle of life, are you missing out on the joys of present moments?

Calm down and enjoy life. It is not only the landscape that you lose by going too fast ... You also lose the sense of where you are going and why ...

One day a poor boy who was selling goods door-to-door to pay for school discovered that he only had a dime left and was hungry.
He decided that he would order food next door. However, he lost his temper when a beautiful young woman opened the door. Instead of eating, he asked for a drink of water.
She thought he looked hungry, so she brought him a big glass of milk. He drank it slowly and then asked, "How much do I owe you?" "You don't owe me anything," he replied, "My mother has taught us never to accept payment for kindness."
He said ... "Then I thank you with all my heart."

He said ... "Then I thank you with all my heart."
When Howard Kelly left that house, he not only felt; stronger physically, but his faith in God and man was also strong. He was willing to give up and quit.
Years later, that young woman became seriously ill. The local doctors were puzzled and finally sent her to the big city, where they called in specialists to study her rare disease. Dr. Howard Kelly was called in for the consultation.
When she heard the name of the town she came from, a strange light filled her eyes. He immediately got up and went down the hospital corridor to his room. Dressed in his doctor's gown, he went in to see her.
He recognized her immediately. He returned to the consulting room determined to do everything possible to save his life. From that day on, he paid special attention to the case.
After a long fight, the battle was won. Dr. Kelly asked the business office to pass him the final invoice for approval.
He looked at it, then wrote something on the border and the bill was sent to his room. She was afraid to open it, because she was sure it would take the rest of her life to pay for it
. Finally, he looked, and something caught his eye on the side as he read these words ...... "Paid in full with a glass of milk." (Signed) Dr. Howard Kelly.
Tears of joy flooded her eyes as her happy heart prayed: "Thank you, GOD, because your love has spread through human hearts and hands."

I never knew dogs could be jealous until mom brought the baby home.

Suddenly, no one looked at Simba a second time. Instead of petting him, we cradled the new baby, marveling at how small his fingers and toes were rather than telling him what a good boy he was. I will not deny it, I am as guilty as my parents. Simba had been ours for years, but a new baby sister? She got our full attention.

She did her best to get us away from the baby, even for a second. He did all the tricks that we would normally have to beg him to do, the jerks, the twists and the turns.

I never knew dogs could be jealous until mom brought the baby home.

Suddenly, no one looked at Simba a second time. Instead of petting him, we cradled the new baby, marveling at how small his fingers and toes were rather than telling him what a good boy he was. I will not deny it, I am as guilty as my parents. Simba had been ours for years, but a new baby sister? She got our full attention.

She did her best to get us away from the baby, even for a second. He did all the tricks we would normally have to beg him to do, the bobbing and the twisting and the sitting and coming and stopping. He would approach us with the leash in his mouth, and I was the only one who obeyed, only about 20 minutes around the neighborhood.

So it was understandable that when the baby started crawling, Simba had none of that. By the time she got within a meter of him, he snorted, got up, and walked away. I think the baby knew that she had done something to offend him, and kept trying to follow him by asking for forgiveness like babies do, pulling on his long fluffy tail. Oh how he hated her.

So it was a total surprise that when I finally decided to vacuum the house, Simba did something beyond any level of heroism imaginable. There was the baby, muttering nonsensical syllables to herself on a blanket as I surrounded her vacuuming the living room. And maybe I got too close, because within seconds, there was Simba, between the baby and the roaring beast's mouth, shaking to the bone as he stared at his mortal enemy.

It didn't leave its place, nor did it stop shaking, until I was done and the vacuum cleaner was banished to the coat closet. Then with a deep sigh, he turned around, licked the baby once, and dropped down next to her.

Needless to say, they were inseparable after that day.

"The girl I never knew"

This is a real life incident that happened with me last year.

I am an electronic engineering student. Every year our university organizes a cultural festival for students consisting of many performances such as dancing, singing, walking the ramp, etc.

Since all of our college events are held in our college auditorium, I, along with my friends, enjoyed the performances from the last seat. As it was 9:30 p.m. and I didn't have a vehicle to go to my hostel and also after 10 p.m. it becomes very difficult to find a car or a city bus.

So I decided to go alone as all my friends were busy enjoying each other.

Here begins the main plot… ..

The auditorium of our university is approximately 1 km from the main gate of the university, as the campus is large enough. And with no other option, I started walking from the auditorium to the front door, as public service transportation is not allowed on the university campus.

I was walking slowly browsing my Facebook account on my mobile.

And later..

Suddenly I heard something with a very sweet voice

"Excuse me!

Could you help me?"

I turned around and saw a girl with a cloth tied to her face asking for help.

Instantly I replied:

"Yes, sure!

What happened?"

She answered:

"Actually, I'm new to this university and I don't know the route to the front door. Could you show me the way or come with me?"

I politely replied:

“I also go there alone. You can join me "

She agreed!

We walked together in silence for 2-3 minutes and after that she started the conversation by asking my branch and year.

We had a talk on topics, the university and our city during those 14 to 15 minutes. She also laughed at one of my silly jokes.

Finally we both reached our destination. His taxi was waiting outside. I walked her to her taxi and she left after thanking me and shaking my hand.

But within those 15 to 20 minutes. I had neither seen his face nor did we exchange talks related to our personal lives such as names, natives, etc.

I've never seen his face.

I don't know its name, branch, or anything else through which I can get a clue. As I thought, it would be strange if he started talking about something personal.

Only what is stored in my mind is her sweet voice.

Still, I hope that every day that girl comes to meet me at the university from the front, as I hope that she remembers my face and can recognize me if I am lucky enough.

A doctor rushed into the hospital after being called in for urgent surgery. He answered the call as soon as possible, changed his clothes and went directly to the surgical ward.

He found the boy's father walking down the hall waiting for the doctor.

Seeing him, the father yelled at him: “Why did you take all this time to come? Don't you know that my son's life is in danger? Don't you have any sense of responsibility? "

The doctor smiled and said: "I'm sorry, I was not in the hospital and I came as fast as I could after receiving the call ...... And now, I wish you to calm down so I can do my work"

The doctor smiled and said: "I'm sorry, I was not in the hospital and I came as fast as I could after receiving the call ...... And now, I wish you to calm down so I can do my work"

"Calm down ?! And if your son were in this room right now, would he calm down? If your own son dies now, what will you do?" Said the father angrily

The doctor smiled again and replied: "I will say what Job said in the Holy Book:" From dust we come and to dust we return, blessed be the name of God. " Doctors can not prolong life. Go and intercede for your son, we will do our best by the grace of God "

"Giving advice when we don't care is so easy," the father murmured.

The surgery lasted a few hours after which the doctor came out happy, "Thank God! Your son has been saved!" And without waiting for the father's answer, he continued on his way running. "If you have any questions, ask the nurse !!"

"Why is he so arrogant? He couldn't wait a few minutes for me to ask him about my son's condition, ”said the father when he saw the nurse minutes after the doctor left.

The nurse responded with tears on her face: “Your son died yesterday in a traffic accident, he was at the funeral when we called him for his son's surgery. And now that he saved his son's life, he ran off to finish cremating his son.

She was watching and waiting, hoping that her husband would once again become the caring and forgiving man she agreed to marry.
She kept waiting for him to walk up to her and hug her gently, leaving traces of passionate kisses all over her body and telling her how exquisitely attractive she was to him and how marrying her was the most splendid of all the decisions he had to make. do.

"I'll see you Sara. Don't forget we had dinner tonight at my boss's house." What a pain in my ass! Said the husband, disgusted and then left.
He stood there for a while, watching the only man he'd ever loved to walk away, stiff and numb. Unforeseen rush of blood flowing through her and then abruptly withdrawing from her veins. She turned pale
Pain, a gut-wrenching pain that accumulated every part of his anatomy that he could reach, leaving his knees weak. He fell to the hard wooden floor and blood spurted from his now dry mouth. Her eyes widen, still reflecting the pain she must have felt before collapsing, running the anger and agony she was feeling, as if something in her exploded.
His body was so still and his eyes so deep, that one could mistake it for the desert of a deep blue ocean of suffering. She died.
In her hand, a piece of paper still dangling on the tip of her index finger, addressing her husband,
"Save me from the nothing I've become.
- July 26, 2015."
She died with the emptiest feelings still residing in her somewhere and he could do nothing. He couldn't save her from herself. He just couldn't save the only woman he had ever loved. He weakened and fell into the same nothing his wife had once suffered from, the deepest of all nothingness, death.
He died a month later, with a note in hand,
"I am ashamed, my beautiful Sara.
You are the only one I have liked.
- August 26, 2015."

The next day, the mother had a severe headache. The child comforted her by saying innocently:" Mommy, you have an empty head!

On another occasion, the curious boy asked his mother, "Mommy, why is some of your hair turning gray?" He tried to take advantage of this opportunity to reform it. “It's for you, dear. Every bad action of yours will make one of my hair turn gray! "The boy replied innocently:" Now I know why your mother only has gray hair on her head. "

Her glow faded, her husband lost interest, she disappeared from all family functions and no one cared.

Tears welled up in his eyes, he shaved his head. Her long silky hair was gone and the husband forgot about her completely.

The son was now 6 years old. She was suffering, but that night she would never forget was when her son came up to her and said:

"Mom, why are you crying?"

"Your mom is very sick."

"Oh, so you'll be fine soon. Don't worry. I'll tuck you to bed every day like you tuck me in and make you tea, and you'll be fine."

The son's words of encouragement from time to time made her struggle and then one day when she was cancer-free, she divorced her husband, took her son, and got pretty again.
He regained his vigor of life. And I felt free.

“Two men were seriously ill. They occupied the same room in the hospital. One of them was lying on the bed near the only window in his room. Every day he was allowed to spend some time sitting on his bed to help drain fluid from his lungs. The other man was forced to spend every day on his back.

They talked a lot about their life, families, jobs, vacations. Each time when the first man sat by the window, he described in detail everything he saw outside the window. His roommate was always looking for those moments, when his world widened and brightened with the world or

They talked a lot about their life, families, jobs, vacations. Each time when the first man sat by the window, he described in detail everything he saw outside the window. His roommate was always looking for those moments, when his world widened and brightened with the outside world.

From the window of his room you could see incredible views of a park with a beautiful lake. The children played delightfully among ducks and swans. Couples walked arm in arm among colorful flowers. You could also see the impressive skyline of the city.

When the man at the window had been thoroughly describing everything that was happening outside the window, his roommate would close his eyes and imagine all the beautiful scenes of life that were told to him.

One night the man, whose bed was near the window, died peacefully in his sleep and his roommate was very sad.

After a while, when the nurse came to visit him, she asked if they could move him by the window. The nurse agreed and kindly made the change. When she was gone, the man rose slowly and painfully to one elbow and looked at the outside world for the first time. He was stunned. The window faced a blank wall.

When the nurse came to visit him the next time, he told her beautiful things outside the window that his roommate described. The nurse replied that her roommate was blind. She said, "He probably just tried to cheer you up."

Without your love, I would die

One day a boy and a girl were driving home after watching a movie. The boy felt that something was wrong due to the painful silence they shared between them that night.

Then the girl asked the boy to stop because he wanted to talk. She told him that her feelings had changed and that it was time to move on.

A silent tear slid down his cheek as he slowly reached into his pocket and handed her a folded note.

At that moment, a drunk driver was speeding down that same street. He cut directly into the car and killed the boy.

Miraculously, the girl survived.
