Day 7: Addicted


Addicted

Reni could not keep her eyes open any longer. Sleep was looming over her pile of urgent work. She could only go on if she had it.

She was addicted to it, it was her life.

But then, everything she had feared, had come true.

The coffee flask was Empty… The coffee pods were Out of Stock…

Day 5: Zapped!


Zapped!

Aarthi looked at the door for a while. Opening it wasn’t going to be easy in this weather.
It wasn’t going to kill her, but she still could not do it.
She tapped quickly on the metal bar hoping it would fix it.
A faint jolt of static plunged through her body.
She had been Zapped!

Day 4: The Destroyer


The Destroyer

It was taking shape, he was finally making progress. He’d spent a lot of time on it. Unbeknownst to him, there was someone else interested too. Just as he turned to pick a piece from the floor, the little figure tore it down and sat there giggling. He cried:

Day 1: 55F – A New Beginning


55F – A New Beginning

He stood there for a while, staring at all the others staring back at him. It had been a while since he was there; since they were there. He looked around to find an empty spot, but he knew it would be tough on the first day of the year. Resolutions usually broke by Mid-January.

55F: The Consent


He couldn’t do it. What would she think of him? Years of love and trust could be destroyed by a piece of paper. But then it was ‘their’ order and he had no choice. He fought his fears, wiped off the nervous sweat, and finally approached her.

“Mom..”

“Can you sign my School Progress-Report?”

Hey Beautiful…” he winked at her. She just couldn’t help smiling.
Those beautiful dimples of hers, behind that careless lock of hair caressing her face could make any guy fall in love. Sunil was no exception.
Do you love me?” she asked.
More than my life, Aarthi…” he promised with a peck on her cheeks.

We did everything we could, but the bleeding wouldn’t stop.

Up & Above

Yayyy… They shouted, trying to match the thundering roar above them…

Kids clapped their hands in glee as they saw the smoke making all strange shapes like a careless child’s crayon on a blue canvas. “Isn’t it beautiful?” a few eager mom’s asked their awestruck toddlers, who just could not stop watching them and nodding.

Kids screamed for their lives, while their mothers tried to find them a safe harbor. With hope in their heart and a prayer on their lips, they just hoped that this wouldn’t be that rain of fire that was to burn them alive.

Vrooom… They thundered past overhead like bullets piercing the blue sky…

Yayyy… They shouted, trying to match the thundering roar above them…

The military jets zipped past the home air-space much to the delight of people waving from below.

They entered enemy territory and had to bomb a target, near a civilian colony.

Vrooom… They thundered past like bullets piercing the blue sky…

It was War…
