A Night of Nostalgic Nebula: #WriteTribeProblogger #WriteBravely #FridayFictioneers

  Saturday, 5:46 A.M.: I haven’t slept a wink. The receding moon is gaping at me blankly. Well, it was a decadent night of drinking and dancing, on the River Mandovi.     A night that also brought back memories from the yesteryears: of Rahul and I. When we had chatted on the same deck; …

Friends with Benefits?: #FridayFotoFiction

Loveless: #FridayFictioneers

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.

A Sky Full of Stars : #Friday Fictioneers

Rendezvous: #FridayFictioneers

      10:22 A.M.: Aamir sits at the wheel; brash and oozing confidence. Though in his late twenties, he sports a salt and pepper stubble. His crooked nose stands out amidst his Greek-God like jaw line.
