A tale of coffee and world travel #TellTaleThursday

Back to business, shutters up. The floor well swept and mopped. Freshly brewed coffee and the smell of pakoras. Breakfast time was the one where they made most money.

The dreams that had tormented her and the unanswered… Continue reading Déjà vu #FlashFiction #TellTaleThursday

A new dawn #FlashFiction #TellTaleThursday

Smriti rubbed her palms together as a cool breeze blew. Dried leaves lay around her feet.
