Genre: General fiction.

100 words exactly.

The demigod sat down and waited. Ah! At last the sobs subsided, the little body still shuddering. When he thought the creature could bear to be touched he tentatively, gently, extended his trunk to sooth the heap of misery. It took a long time.

Awareness intruded on this thing, this bit of existence. It heaved. But no, the effort was too much. Patience. Eyes opened, closed. A sigh welled up, then another. Ah! The eyes stayed open, roamed, then focussed. It started and stared. Then stared some more.

Ganesha withdrew his trunk and waited. Inner laughter shuddered his whole being.
