“Are you excited for the first day at your school?” Lucy’s mom asked her in the middle of her phone call. Honestly, Lucy wasn’t very excited. She has been changing schools for a long time because of her mom’s job, and it was pretty difficult for her to make friends. She knew that it didn’t matter what she felt because her mom would not listen to her anyway. “Ya, super excited.” She said as she held on to the Batman’s Lego her father had gifted her on her 4th birthday. She missed her father very much; she often wondered if … Continue reading Friendship

Conundrum (Chapter 2 – The girl in the attic)

The Detective didn’t know what was happening. He was scared and confused. “You look like a person I can trust; I think Doctor Firoz was wrong about you; he said you were pretty hideous but, what choice do I have. Well, I can’t let my sister be accused of something she didn’t do,” She said. The Detective gulped and stayed tied to his seat, all frozen, “What do you mean, Angelyn? You are scaring me now. Normally I am not frightened, but you make me feel terrified. I don’t understand.” The Detective said, almost shivering. “I am Angelyn’s twin sister; … Continue reading Conundrum (Chapter 2 – The girl in the attic)

Second Chance

Last night the phone rang continuously but, I wasn’t interested in talking to anyone. Every year when this day comes, I get paralyzed. August 26, a terrible day! I get nightmares, where I see her repeating the same words she said to me five years ago, “It’s better we stay away from each other.” These words get repeated in my dreams, I can even see how her expressions were when she said these heartbreaking words to me. Best friend, that’s what I thought we were but, it looks like we weren’t even friends. Alas, how could she break a friendship … Continue reading Second Chance

Kelly’s One-horned De Vile

It was getting dark. The chirping of birds was getting louder. Within few hours, the darkness engulfed the place. The chirping was no longer heard; it appeared like they were fast asleep except for the crickets. Roni, still in his room, was staring down his window. He wasn’t simply staring; he observed the shadow which seemed to be hiding behind the bushes. As he focussed more, he made out a figure. It had a long tail as well as a horn. It appeared to be staring back at him, for he could see two eyes looking through him as the … Continue reading Kelly’s One-horned De Vile

A Love Unconfessed

Image source: Pinterest As I lay in bed with him, all I could think about was her. Her smile for which I fell for, the way her eyes twitched when she smiled, Oh God I miss her. I miss her beside me, I miss her touch, her hands around me, well, the list goes on… my point is I miss everything about her. I still remember the day I met her. Like every other day, I was boarding my train to my college. Surprisingly, this girl got my eyes. I felt like I knew this one for her face looked … Continue reading A Love Unconfessed


“Make a decision now, is it gonna be me or her?”, she shouted at Ernie. He looked back quietly as if he didn’t have an answer. She asked again now as an outcry. He stared at both of us, “I love you both…” now it was her turn to ask questions. “What do you mean by both of us? You told me you fell in love with me not her. Was that all a lie?”, she yelled. Anie smiled inside without him noticing, being his best friend, she had seen many girls with whom he said he “fell in love”, … Continue reading Choices

The Dragon Fort

To protect her from him, I fought my best. It seemed like I was the villain here while I was the real hero. I fought against his sword where my fire couldn’t fail. He fought ferociously trying to grab her from me. But, would I fail in saving the one I love? Never, her life mattered to me more than mine. I couldn’t see her suffer in his hands. But he misunderstood my fierce attitude as that of evil. Maybe to him, I was an evil, protecting his princess from marrying him. I would love to see her getting married … Continue reading The Dragon Fort
