The Watch, and other Short Stories

the watch1“The Watch” is the first collection of short stories published by Jonel Juste. As it says, they are short stories, meaning stories that could have been longer but that we shortened because we know you don’t have much time to read. Here’s the first one: The Watch.  

Every morning I watched my dad wear his Cartier with a certain satisfaction and pride. From time to time he gazed at it as if he feared it would vanish off his wrist. He received this gift from my mother and he loved it as much as he loved her. Mom offered this precious gift to my father to celebrate their ten years of marriage, and he couldn’t stop talking about it. It was really a wonderful watch and a technological jewel. I became jealous. I was even more jealous that I’ve always implored my mother to buy me a plastic watch but she refused. I was jealous and angry.

La Cigale et la Fourmi au 21e Siècle

cigale

La cigale et la fourmi étaient bonnes copines. Elles se rencontraient parfois au bar pour boire un verre et causer un peu. Les deux amies avaient cependant deux personnalités opposées; la fourmi était une travailleuse acharnée tandis que la cigale était une fêtarde, une chanteuse, une artiste. Tandis que la fourmi travaillait 24 heures par jour, la cigale bossait peu, se rendait dans les clubs faire la fête avec ses amis jusqu’au matin.

La Solution au Problème de la Pauvreté

wealth_news

La solution au problème de la pauvreté n’est pas de partager les richesses comme le prétendent certains. Ce n’est pas non plus de travailler plus pour gagner plus comme le prétendre d’autres. Beaucoup de gens travaillent comme des chiens et sont encore pauvres. Leur labeur sert à enrichir les autres qui sont assez intelligents pour les employer et les payer juste de quoi survivre.
