One Night Stand
On her office trip to London, Mia met a guy. Both felt an instant connection. They spent the day together. Back in her hotel room, Mia tried not to think about him. But couldn't resist. A knock at her room door brought her back to reality. She opened the door and there he stood. All they longed, for now, was this 'one night'. They made love. Intense and passionate.
After long, in ages, Mia felt alive. She had forgotten what being loved felt like.
The irony of life was, it took a stranger to make her feel good about herself.
Every End Has A New Beginning
The pain was hard to bear. She cried
calling her mom. A hand patted her shoulder
in reassurance. Her yelling continued...
...till she gave up. It was over.
She passed away giving birth
to a baby boy.
Some mourned her loss.
Some celebrated the newborn life.
Soon she became history...
and, things were never the same again!
A Walk Down The Aisle
This is a great place to add a tagline.
“Mirror, mirror on the wall,
Do I look any closer to my mom at all?”
Introspecting, she looked at herself from head to toe in the mirror, one last time. It was her mother’s wedding gown she was wearing.
She did not remember her mom. Her mother died in an accident when Snow was one-year-old. She missed her mom more than ever on her big day.
‘You look just like your mom', came a soft voice from behind. She turned and looked at her dad, and smiled with teary eyes.
‘Come, dear Snow, it’s time to walk you down the aisle’.
Love at First Sight
Shy, timid and nervous she sat on the last bench in a corner in the classroom. Searching for a friendly face in a new class, in a new school. And then a boy walked in.
She was mesmerized by his innocent smile. She could not take her eyes off him. His eyes met hers for a fraction of a second. She fell in love instantly. She fell in love for the first time.
That was the day her destiny was written. 14 years later, she married the boy she fell in Love with at First Sight.
The Best Of Her Is Gone
Aunt Sophie lay in bed, helpless and immovable. With dreary eyes, she stares at the ceiling. I wonder what goes through her mind. Growing up, I had seen her as a strong-willed woman. Aunt Sophie had been my Shero for as long as I remember. Today she is sad, sick and lost. The best of her is gone.
Staying in the same house her family had forgotten her. There is a nurse taking care of her.
Aunt Sophie nurtured her family and cared for all. In the end, she suffers alone. Just because she has no memory of where she belonged.
Life Of A Prostitute
She sat expressionless and motionless while her 7 months old sucked on her nipple. Soon the baby fell asleep in her arms. As she carefully laid the baby on the floor, he dragged her to the bed, unclothed her hurriedly, and like a beast, pushed himself on her. 10 minutes later in her cubical, she sat, naked, helpless, and unresponsive to the 100 rupee note that was thrown at her face for her service. She wasn't allowed to rest, and so, she got up, dressed up and waited for her next customer to come and rip her soul apart, yet again.
Her eyes met his. Her gaze cut through his soul fiercely. Though Niya had never thought that she would see this devil again in her life. But it was his last wish to see his daughter before his death sentence. He was filled with shame and remorse.
She was 12. He raped her. She kept crying, seeking mercy. But Niya could not save her best friend from the clutches of the beast, she called the father. Niya denied him forgiveness till he was alive. And now he was gone, and so was her best friend whom her father killed that night.
