Falling debris shaded our eyes with darkness. What time was it? Two, three in the morning? People are so inconsiderate. Victoria wasn’t pleased. It was the third time falling trees awoke us. It was enough to drive even a patient individual insane. Most days there was no fallout…could something else have collapsed? Could it have been an object that we didn’t know existed? My instincts yearned to see, but the thought was insane. Victoria didn’t let me go, her arm wrestled my chest, forcing me onto the cavern floor next …

A friend recently asked, “When do you write?” I explained that all writers eventually find their special time, be it morning or evening, that energizes rather than depletes the soul. That special time for me is the morning … the very early morning when my day world of friends and family still sleep soundly in their beds, cars sit idle in driveways, birds quietly roost … all offering me a unique solace of time to call my own. I slap the four a.m. alarm to eventual silence and soon rise …

A short reflection from our patriarchal society. She phoned her friend, Sahil, and told him about the chemist, who during packing had slid his phone number into the packet of potions. Her eyes closed but a ray of hope, that the friend will do something convincing kept them from bursting. “You should have told it to your mother so that she would have taken a mature reaction against the chemist”, replied the friend. He added, “Women are naturally weak and their best protectors are their parents, not friends because society …

In Memory of David …. The voices in the hallway faded as the volunteers walked past Nathan’s office and made their way towards the kitchen. Every Tuesday, they came in to help prepare the dinner at the shelter. There was a knock at the door a few minutes after the volunteers passed. “Come in,” Nathan stated. He looked up from his desk. It was Bill. “You can leave the door open.” Bill looked anxious as he sat down. “You know – some days are worse than other days; I don’t …

“May we have a bottle of Gattinara, please?” asked Lara. “Of course, Madame,” replied the waiter. It was a routine now; the bottle of wine and the weekly updates of life with her mother over their favorite Italian plate. As the conversation continued, Lara could not help noticing how truly symmetrical and beautiful her mother’s lips were. She inherited genes for perfect lips and had them –until the accident. It wasn’t anything life-changing, but it did leave a scar, both on the right side her upper lip and on her …

Night had fallen. Starry blues chased away the pesky pinks and purples of dusk. Low lying fog completed the scene. The time was a little after three in the morning according to the green display on the dashboard, and I was whistling along to Ella Fitz on the radio. Dungeons and Dragons had gone especially well that night. I’d gotten a book of spells and a new sword. It lit up. On top of that, Monique, the only girl in our campaign and the resident hottie, had come with me …

…In the distance, slowly increasing in clarity: “Wake up. Wake up. WAKE UP!” My eyes slowly open inch by inch. Vision is obscured by the fogginess of the sleep that had overcome me. As the fog lifts and my eyes begin to focus, I am overwhelmed by the angelic figure sitting across from me that had abruptly ended my slumber. I straighten my body in my chair and gaze across the table at the girl that both occupies my dreams and my nightmares. Hair that is usually a silky black, …

harekrishna, i am sharing a very cute experience from my life. Shrihari ‘THE ROAD’ “Why the hell this road is too lengthy? … Ye road thodi chhoti nahi ho sakti thi.” I cursed the length of road two days ago in fear of being late. I used to become late daily in my routine morning works before going to college. And the worst part was the road from my home to the taxi stand. I daily used to curse that road for being too long as it takes at least …
