THE DICTATOR

Kio, a 20-year-old student of CHK college. He was one of the most modest and competent students in the university. He was brought up in a middle-class family, his mother was a homemaker and his father was working as a joker in the circus. He had several problems regarding the condition of his family.


Kio's father used to work the entire day just to earn some coins for fulfilling the basic needs of his family. Though being a joker was not his choice. He had no other alternative. When Kio passed his 12th with good grades, his summer vacations began, and once he reached the circus to see his father. Though what he saw was desperate. After the carnival, people were teasing his father as he is still a clown. Kio came back home without confronting his father.


Days passed, the situation was getting unbearable. Being in such a chaotic condition, his father used to smile in front of family members pretending like everything is good.


Thereon, Kio began struggling in higher studies and eventually dropped out. Now he was exhausted and he didn't want to follow in his father's footsteps. Kio got a call that his father was lethargic while performing in the circus. As soon as Kio reached the circus and took his father on his lap, his father confided, "you don't deserve the life that I survived. Do what makes you happy, not what makes others happy". Kio said "yes" and rushed his father to the hospital, but he was declared dead.


Kio was extremely heartbroken. He had the responsibility of his mother. Days passed and finally, he decided to take revenge. Because his father spent his whole life making people smile, and those fellow people never bothered about him.


Kio was missing his dad and wondering how he used to tell him mysterious stories before sleeping at night, especially stories of dictatorship. So he recollected those stories and visited the circus where his dad used to be a clown. Wore all the accessories of his dad. It was a night event, with 25 audience. Kio trapped the whole audience in the circus and now he going to be a 'dictator'.


The story ends here.
