Short Story: One Night Food Market
Genre: slice of life, spiritual
For one night, the church was transformed into a glorious food market. Stalls of homemade cuisines from all over the world filled the space, gathered for the sake of raising funds to support those making a difference in other countries and the local community.
All the stalls had prominent banners and price tags, except one. Simple, slightly burnt cookies sat price-less on the table as a group of four stood behind.
“How much are these?” people asked.
“As much as you want to contribute to saving lives,” they answered.
Some gave little, some gave much. They carefully collected the money in a little box.
Once, they were broken people trapped in a lonely life going nowhere. Then a group of strangers stepped into their lives and saved them from themselves. The cookies weren’t much, but it was their way of returning the favour.
