Christmas Carol: #FridayFictioneers

"I'm Dreaming of a White Christmas," Vivian hummed, as the barren tree outside the living room window stared back at her. The icicles lent it a certain character, though.     Adriana, her sister was busy decorating the Christmas tree. Vivian's twins were excitedly pitching in. "Mommy, you got to see these new decorations, we bought [...]

Country Roads: #FridayFictioneers

My Thoughts on Seeing This Prompt: Yikes! I'm not going to write this one. It looks dark, gloomy and will not elude a great story. But then I haven't written for my favourite Friday Fictioneers for the past two weeks. I was away traveling, and when I returned I got swamped by life's little follies. [...]

The Encounter: #FridayFictioneers

It's a rare, sunny morning in Chicago. That special kind of morning when the sun streams right on to your shoulders, and your spirits are simply soaring. "What a memorable work trip," thinks Sonia smugly. "I'll grab a bite and then binge shop at Bloomingdales."  She turns around to eye the building.     A [...]

Istanbul: #FridayFictioneers

"Woooah! What are those multi-coloured beauties we have on the mantle piece, Mommy?" asked Sam. "New additions to my artifact collection, Hun. Urns and vases, specially imported from Istanbul," Eva replied proudly. "They must have cost you a fortune?" Sam asked inquisitively. "Well, they did. All my years of savings went into them, sweetheart." "Mom! [...]

A Date To Remember…: #WriteBravely #WriteTribeProBlogger #FridayFictioneers

  "I love opal sunsets. Especially the ones that come, right after a heavy downpour," smiled Samantha gazing across the horizon. The sky embellished with dark-amber clouds, looked gorgeous. Vihaan and she were out on their second date. A perfect setting to get some romance started. "What's the big deal about sunsets? They come and [...]

MysTree: #WriteBravely #WriteTribeProBlogger #FridayFictioneers

      The ancient tree towers among the tropical vegetation of the Sands resort. It canopies the wooden benches, giving the guests a respite from the sunny days. A pair of woodpeckers nest here every spring. But each time the fledglings die, leaving a trail of blood. Also, what remains a mystery are the [...]

The Unannounced Guest: #WriteTribeProblogger #WriteBravely #FridayFictioneers

"We found him on the porch. It's broken a wing," said the DH, almost thrusting a Mynah on my face. The nine-year-old piped in, "Mamma, isn't he handsome as hell? Can we keep him, pleaseeeee.” “I'd love to darling, but you know Gran is Orinthophobic, don't you!" “Orintho...what?" “She has a fear of birds.” “But [...]

Loveless: #FridayFictioneers

  It’s yet another dark, dreary morning. I wonder why the nights aren’t endless. Then the sinister mornings wouldn’t return. These gloomy mornings remind me of my vulnerabilities, and give me no choice but to face this loveless world squarely; everyday. Oh! It's almost 7:30 A.M. and I'm late for work again. No time for [...]

The Jungle Ride : #FridayFictioneers

  The sun was dipping into the horizon, leaving behind streaks of burnt orange as the grey, candy flossed clouds tried hard to camouflage them. Al and I had decided to go for a quick drive to the Aravalli hills, that lazily lay sprawled around our urban jungle. We were hoping to spot some peacocks, [...]

Ruminating by the Ruins: #FridayFictioneers

   Naysa and Nolan have been married for a week now and are honeymooning in Scotland. They are out sightseeing. These ruins haven't caught the eyes of many a tourists. The couple heard about them from their friends who are locals. The ruins stand out in all their splendour, adorned by the lush, luxuriant greens [...]
