“Grandpa! Grandpa! ”
“Yes Kiddo! ”
“Are you going to work? ”
“No Kiddo! I am retired now! ”
“Then why are you shaving? ”
“Dad only shaves when he is going to office. ”
Grandpa finishes shaving and picks me up. I touch his face. He has a few nicks. Must be his shaking hands.
“You don’t have to shave now Grandpa! You don’t go to work so no one will mind! ”
“Your Grandma will, little one. ”

PS: this is the first instalment of a series covering various genres. I got the inspiration from Karthik’s blog! I will keep these writings less than 100 word long.
