CROOKED TREE ISLAND


At the purgatory, souls were queued up in a line. They were anxious about their fate. Many wanted to go to heaven; some missed the earthly stuff, while some couldn’t care less.

“Can we have bit of silence, please?” The purgatory attendant tried to quieten them.
“We have some issues lately. Hell is currently house-full and all of you cannot enter heaven, obviously. Who’ll like to go the newly built island for souls? Choose wisely, there’s a catch!”

“Me!” Everyone yelled. All were instantly transported to the island where they got new life as trees for eternity. 'Catch' being crooked!

  1. There's always a catch. Hopefully there are no beavers on that island too. :)

  10. Dear Nandini,

    Given the choice, Purgatory might not be a bad place to stay for a while. Interesting concept. Hell full?

    Shalom,

  12. Good story. Patience is a virtue. The fact that this bunch didn't have it was probably one of the reasons they ended up in purgatory. Well done.

  13. When somebody tells you there's a catch--listen up. Good twist.

  14. You have to be so canny when dealing with those purgatory people. Always trying to catch us sinners out. Nice parable.
