“This room here is going to be mine. It feels just right!” she said, breathing in the salty sea air that blew in through the French window.

He knows something’s wrong. He’s upset I no longer share my problems with him. He says we’re growing apart. I smile at his exaggeration. Emotional blackmail has been favourite ploy. I try to explain that I’m still vulnerable. I would relent later, once the storm has passed. But his face is still sulking. I know I have lost. I launch into my story staring blankly at the poster behind. Wronged, insulted, humiliated, yet keeping myself strong enough to tell the tale. I’m glad I’m not crying. But when I look […]

Politics? Sport?” “Why should I be bothered with news of tragedies that happen with Other People? They’re never going to happen to me!” He distracted himself by thinking about the things his wife and kids would be doing on their Camping Trip to the mountains. Suddenly, on […]
303. She locked the room from outside, leaving stains on the knob. Two bell boys crossed her on the corridor, but looked down as she passed. When she was gone, they giggled at her impatience to be with her man, this late. The dazed look on her face, mistaken to be an embarrassed flush. 309. When she opened the door to her room, it was dark inside. “She has been sleep-walking again. It’s her big day tomorrow.” Talking in hushed voices, the parents gently escorted the bride-to-be back to bed. But they didn’t see in the dark, the dagger and that […]

They were on cycles, both the city and the village woman, the former’s heavy body, could now no longer balance itself on the tiny frame. “I think we are just on time! Better speed up after the curve ahead. The lane is narrow, and they will be here any moment from now!” Shraddha’s words filled the fatigued city lady with renewed gusto.
