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 … Continue reading The Encounter: #FridayFictioneers

Last Christmas: #FridayFotoFiction

The Holiday season was around the corner. The decked up stores were buzzing with shoppers galore.  As "Santa Clause is Coming to Town" played in the background, cheery people  gallivanted around with a spring in their feet. Some with two left feet even did a happy jig, with not a care in the world. Children … Continue reading Last Christmas: #FridayFotoFiction

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! … Continue reading Istanbul: #FridayFictioneers

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

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 … Continue reading MysTree: #WriteBravely #WriteTribeProBlogger #FridayFictioneers

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 … Continue reading The Unannounced Guest: #WriteTribeProblogger #WriteBravely #FridayFictioneers

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; … Continue reading A Night of Nostalgic Nebula: #WriteTribeProblogger #WriteBravely #FridayFictioneers

Friends with Benefits?: #FridayFotoFiction

We'd known each other since high school. Friends with benefits they called us. But that was far from the truth. We stuck to each other in good times and bad times alike. When Richard lost his mother, I spent endless days and nights by his side, reassuring him everything would be all right. He knew … Continue reading Friends with Benefits?: #FridayFotoFiction

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 … Continue reading 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. 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, … Continue reading The Jungle Ride : #FridayFictioneers
