The wait

The wait

He had to find her. He hadn’t slept a wink all night for he couldn’t wait for the day to dawn. Separated from his beloved for no fault of his and detained in this hellhole, there wasn’t a single when he didn’t cry. They had dreamed of a life together and the war had crushed those dreams. That was so long ago. Would she still […]

The afternoon break

The afternoon break

“There she goes again!” “I wonder what she does there every afternoon. I know the view from her balcony is great, but it is weird” “Yeah, why does she have to close the door behind her? Does she smoke?” “It doesn’t seem like that” *************** “Finally some time to myself! Phew! I’ve waited for this time since morning”, she thought to herself as she settled […]

Who?

Who?

We kept walking along the isolated parts of the shore and an ancient house welcomed us. It looked spooky and I just wanted to return. But Tom wouldn’t agree. The house though old looked strong. There was a cabinet which had a lot of strange stuff. While Tom was still busy inspecting the items, I turned around and saw a man. “Finally you are back!”, […]

The girl outside the train

The girl outside the train

It was the best part of my daily routine. I used to wait eagerly to see you for that one glimpse of yours would make my day. You looked beautiful and the early morning rays of the sun only made it better. The only part of the hour long journey that I liked was when the train stopped near your station. You wouldn’t get into […]

It is urgent

“Can you meet me now? It is urgent.” “But what is the matter? Are you okay?” “Just meet me now, will you?” He rushed to meet her. “Something is wrong”, he thought. “Was she sick? What had happened? Wait, does she want to break up with me?”, he wondered. She was there waiting for him and he ran to her. “What is the matter?” “There […]

Home coming

Home coming

She lit the lamps though it wasn’t dark. She’d prepared all his favourite dishes and had meticulously arranged them on the table the way he liked it. Tonight was special. She was going to see him after so long! She waited patiently while pouring more oil into the lamps to keep them burning. Eventually, the food went cold, the wind blew off the lamps. She […]

The birthday gift

The birthday gift

Both of them searched every corner of the house with the hope of finding some money. The old clothes, old drawers and cupboards were dusted and thoroughly searched, but with no luck. “What do we do? We have no money for her gift.”, he said. “It is okay, she’ll understand dear”, she tried to calm him down. “But it is her 10th birthday. And as […]

By the lake

By the lake

The serene waters of the lake bore no┬áresemblance┬áto the storm of thoughts raging in her mind. But she loved looking at the waters of the lake. Because those were her few minutes of freedom, the only time when she got to see the outside world. How she longed to be out in the open and feel the chill of the blowing wind and the warmth […]

The boss

The boss

He double checked if everything was in place for the next day. He didn’t want his boss to find any mistakes with his work. It was late. As he was walking down the corridor, he was surprised. The lights were on in his boss’s cabin! Was she actually there? He went in to check and there she was. “What are you still working on boss?” […]
