Brittle Parchment

He went into her room, over the years nothing changed, he had missed her fragrance. Her writings were strewn all over the place, a freshly written parchment read, *It just took moments to be there again, they thought I know not about love. They know not about you. Each time I wish to seek the like, I…

Fire started and Ice Remained

Everything is normal under the sun. World would better end with fire he thought. It was four days since the weather took a windfall. Sun took refuge behind the dark clouds, winds cleared the roads and sent people packing stuff off like bunnies. Looking out from his desk, drizzle blurred his lens; worry seized his…

Can Love come in different shades?

Through the corner of my eye, I saw him coming in a black suit with a shiny lapel. My eyes narrowed. He looked at the ‘ORANGE’ torch wide-eyed and stood there rooted for a while. “How did it happen?” someone thundered ********* A flash back - a few years back it all started. It was…

The Yellow Books

Keys swung into the lock, and with a loud click disrupting the silence, the door swung open. I entered my apartment; it was the same way I left it in the morning. Coffee mug on the balcony, with the door wedged open; newspapers bundled in a corner; some cloths on the bed; a pitiable kitchen…

G for GO Happy Kid

“Akrith! Lights out in ten.” His mom called out. The eight year old looked up from his drawing book, curly hair tossled with jerk. Tall and skinny kid, pouted and resumed sketching.

Every time the phone blipped or someone opened the door, her eyes lit up in anticipation of some work. However this time she got lucky when the…

Last Thoughts of an Ebbing Soul

I am Loppua, a happy-go-lucky teen, that too, 18. I had just celebrated my birthday last month, the best part being I got my brand new FZ8 as a surprise birthday gift. It was a full black beast with streaks of dull gold coloring the front suspension and the disc brake, I adored it. A…

Brown now held Hazel

After a very long tiring day, I was walking back to the parking lot. Suddenly someone waved at me, tearing away from my thoughts I looked up to see. Familiarity wrapped me from within, I thought it was you. Elated to see you again I hasten to greet the wave. As we edged closer, I…

Monica, the Substitution Teacher

It was a breezy afternoon, Shubadra was in her office. The sky was slowly getting darker, anticipation of showers brought smile to her lips. Office work was less taxing that evening, she had called for an informal coffee meeting in her office. Her colleagues were walking in their coffees and pastries from the canteen. Nicolas…
