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 [...]

“Sometimes When We Touch”: #WOW #Blogadda

"Sometimes When We Touch" You ask me if I love you And I choke on my reply I'd rather hurt you honestly Than mislead you with a lie And who am I to judge you On what you say or do? I'm only just beginning to see the real you And sometimes when we touch [...]

The Actor: #MicroMondays

  The party was swinging. Toasts were being raised and glasses clinked. Doff had won an Oscar. His head started to reel. Wasn’t the Jagerbombs!

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 [...]

To Live with Gratitude: #WOW #BlogAdda #MondayMusings

Yet again!!!! A prompt that gives me thirty minutes to write what’s top of my mind, well that’s no complex feat, I suppose. I’ve been seeing innumerable gratitude prompts and posts off late. And my inner child has been prodding me to put together one such post. After all, I haven’t written one in 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! [...]

Paw Prints: #WriteBravely #WriteTribeProBlogger #MondayMusings

Our paw prints are all over the place, in this charming apartment on the fifteenth floor. We live with our family of four. Each day we also leave our heart prints on them with our tiny, little deeds. My name is Laila (pronounced at Lie-lah, and not Lai-la or Lay-la). I'm a 4-year-old, toy Shitzu [...]
