SHORT HUMOR STORY by Tanmaya Murthy




Kiara and Tiara were two identical twin sisters who were poles apart. Kiara was a fun-loving extrovert, and a daring and brave person whereas Tiara was shy, sweet and usually kept things to herself. It was hard to differentiate between the two when it came to facial identity. They both were totally identical! Everyone in school was able to distinguish between the two due to their opposite personalities.

Tiara’s strength was that she had a creative mind. She loved writing, drawing and everything in which she had to use her imagination. She was good in studies as well. Kiara’s strong points were that she was physically very active and took part in sporty events, dances, music and active performances! Both of them had their own plus points and were unique in their own way!

Their school was organizing a Talent Hunt show in which the students had to present their talent in any field, be it sports, dance, cooking, poetry, essay writing or other activities. The twins never missed such a chance. Both of them were talented in their own way and they never missed the chance to participate in the Talent Hunt. Even though Tiara was shy, she was fully determined to take part in the poetry competition. Kiara had been preparing herself to perform a ballet piece for this talent hunt. Last time Kiara took part in sports and this time she wanted a change. Kiara was a wonderful ballet dancer and she didn’t want to miss such a wonderful opportunity either.

The last date to fill out the participation form was the 8th of March. Kiara and Tiara both filled out their forms, ticked the activity they were going to show and filled in other important formalities. Indeed their school was having a prestigious event and many students were taking part. Tiara and Kiara knew that the competition will be tough, but nothing could stop them from participating and hoping to win!

Tiara was writing something in her notebook when Kiara entered the room. “Hey Kiara, I have written a poem on the season of spring, would you mind hearing it?”

To this Kiara replied, “Not a bit Sis! I am fascinated with your poetry and I can never miss the chance of listening to the world’s most wonderful poetry. Go on…!”

Tiara smiled and then started reciting a few lines of her poem:

Spring has come with its blooming everlasting smile

Will make nature blossom back with its zest and life

Laughter across the fields and buzzing bees

Spring will nurture the vegetation and trees!

After reciting these few lines Tiara was waiting for Kiara’s response.

“Great one Tiara! Keep writing! I am pretty sure you are going to get the first prize after all!”

Tiara replied, “Thanks Sis! I am working on this to make it even better. Well, what about your ballet dance? I am sure you are practicing hard!”

“Yup I am! It’s difficult you know! It needs a lot of practice. Tiara your poetry has won my heart, I wish I could write like you. I am sure you are going to teach me one day!” said Kiara.

To this Tiara replied, “I will for sure! Come any time! I am sure that you’ll teach me some ballet forms too!” Kiara nodded with full enthusiasm.

Everyone thought that Kiara and Tiara didn’t like to try out anything new. They felt that Kiara would never try poetry and Tiara will never try ballet, but Kiara and Tiara both had a deep desire to try out something new! They never revealed this fact to anyone. Kiara wanted to learn a bit of poetry and Tiara wanted to learn ballet!

It was bedtime and both of them were preparing to sleep. Kiara said, “The competition is after a week! I am so excited Tiara…I don’t feel like sleeping at all! Good night anyway!”

Last year they didn’t get any prize as it was a tough competition, though both of them had equally performed well. But the twins never lost hope. They were excited for the Talent Hunt! The bumper prize for each field’s winner was yet to be revealed. It was kept a surprise for the winners. So it deepened their excitement even more.

Even Tiara wished her sister a good night and both the twins fell fast asleep dreaming about the Talent Hunt!
