5 years ago, in a road mishap, she lost him.

She remembers now how when she was younger she would be drenched in sweat lying her bed-sheet, her heart skipping a beat at the faintest noise outside. She remembers now how she badly she wanted to believe that ghosts didn't exist, that people didn't come back from the dead. Now, she wants them to.

Suzy and Shaina - A very short life story
Short Published over 3 years ago

27th March – IndvsAusT20, somewhere in Pakistan

Suzy and Shaina are best friends. They are studying at Shaina’s house. Shaina is very excited about IndvsAus T20 tonight.

“But don’t you hate India?”, asks Suzy.

“No silly. Dad says to hate India only when they are playing against us. But when there is a common enemy we should all stand as one. Do you hate me because I am a Muslim?”

Suzy gets up and hugs Shaina. “You are my best friend! How can I hate you?!”

“Will you watch the match with me?”, Shaina asks.

“Yes!”, she exclaims and they run out to play in the park.

Standing in the doorway, Shaina’s dad smiles and wishes for time to stop, he wishes that the little girls never grow up.

He doesn't know it yet but his wish is going to come true. Shaina and Suzy from Pakistan will not get to see India win tonight, they will not get to see Virat Kohli play tonight. They will be among the 65 killed when blasts rip apart the Gulshan-e-Iqbal park.

Memory Scrap
Drabble Published over 3 years ago

Memories have a curious way of resurfacing, of creeping back into your current thoughts and playing with your mind. It is a normal day, brilliant in all aspects – the sun is shining behind the dark clouds, she is having a warm cup of coffee, it is going to rain soon, all is good at work and in life and then all of a sudden out of nowhere her mind goes back 4 or 3 years and she is standing at an airport kissing him goodbye – a passionate touch of lips, a tight hug and a quietly whispered – i love you.

Tail Tale
Drabble Published over 3 years ago

Drunk on really cheap wine, he turned on the light only to find her on the wall. She seemed mildly surprised to see him, the room had been her haven for the past few hours. Who was this man standing in the corner and looking at her, she wondered, why did it feel like day all of sudden, where did all this light come from?

Lizards. He was not particularly fond of any reptiles, especially lizards.

Unfortunate Coincidence
Nano Published over 3 years ago

By the time you swear you're his,
Shivering and sighing,
And he vows his passion is
Infinite, undying -
Lady, make a note of this:
One of you is lying.

- Dorothy Parker
