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)

Memories

I was in love with the most amazing guy in the world, but I messed up. Well, what should I expect after hurting him? I kept the phone aside and sighed on seeing his two-years-ago uploaded Facebook profile picture. Memories started to rush in from the first day I met him to the last goodbye we shared.

The idea of love

“I wonder how love feels like.” sighed Yasmine as she looked into a photograph of a couple jogging on the beach-side from a magazine kept near to her bed. COVID19 restructured the whole world.

It became mandatory that a house should accommodate only one person. People hardly had any human connection. The government took care of the people. Once in every two days, necessities were delivered to each house by the suppliers. Specialised robots designed … Continue reading The idea of love

Fallen Angel

The young Lucifer’s face shined as his father picked him up, “Oh my dear son, you are my favorite. I love you the most.” Suddenly it felt like the place trembled. Lucifer woke up with tears in his eyes. There was nothing there but, darkness. His red eyes glowed in them. Yes, the greatest evil of all was alone, hated and unloved. The people in all three worlds were afraid of him. He wished if someone could look at him with love and kindness instead of what he received- well, all blamed him when someone did something evil as if … Continue reading Fallen Angel
