Keep that flame burning #FictionMondays

She could feel it again, the gnawing pain had now become a constant companion. It crept stealthily when she least expected it, made her mind its home and took over every inch of her being. That bubbly woman who loved life, who made every moment count. Was this really her? Lost in the humdrum of… Continue reading Keep that flame burning #FictionMondays

An adventure beckons #FictionMondays

It felt like a tight slap on her face, the bruise was one that would stay for long. The enormity of what had just transpired was almost impossible to fathom. As they say, it takes but a moment for life to turn upside down. Till yesterday, the house was abuzz with excitement, a long to… Continue reading An adventure beckons #FictionMondays

And she wrote her story #FictionMondays

She held the pen in her fingers, undecided. Should I let it out? Should I hold myself back? Should I word this as a fictional piece so that I can pour unto this paper all my thoughts unfiltered and always say “well this is a fictional story”. The guise of fiction sounded tempting. She hadn’t… Continue reading And she wrote her story #FictionMondays

Can love last a lifetime? #FictionMonday

“Yes” she whispered into the phone. The word I had been waiting to hear, my heart pounded so loudly that I thought everyone around could hear it.

The sky was grey, clouds hovered all around as thunder rumbled – it felt like the weather perfectly summed up my inner turmoil. The heated conversation… Continue reading Epiphany #FictionMondays

Date night #FictionMonday

I looked at myself in the mirror for the 20th time, “do I look good? Have I overdone my make up? My hair- when was the last time I left it open, it was always tied in a messy bun with strands falling down my face which I brushed aside” This feels good, the hair… Continue reading Date night #FictionMonday

Choice #FictionMonday

She clasped her fingers tightly, her brow twitched like it always did when she was in deep thought. She asked herself for the 100th time. Was she ready to take the plunge? Ready to give up her carefree ways and brace herself up to take responsibility? Was she really in her senses? Should she take… Continue reading Choice #FictionMonday

A place called Home #FictionMonday

A dilapidated building- perhaps a haunted place. The roof fallen through, grass and bushes within. Who would ever think this was once inhabited. A red roof with an opening to the sky so that I could gaze at the stars at night, the hearth that brought warmth as we sat huddled around, steaming cups of… Continue reading A place called Home #FictionMonday

Free #FictionMondays

How I wish I was a bird, free to fly away from the pandemonium that surrounds me, soar over mountains and valleys, never stay at one place but keep exploring. “You are a girl, don’t ever entertain such thoughts”, they said. Study well and help your mother in household chores. “Girls shouldn’t dare to dream… Continue reading Free #FictionMondays
