I want that

“I want that” she said looking at this fantastic house covered by green. It wasn’t the angle the house was in or the way it was built, there was something about this house that made it difficult to describe.

I looked at her eyes and at that moment decided i would give anything to go away from this world and retreat there.

I couldn’t change a lot of things but i could change us.

It was her peace that was important.

Peace at the cost of happiness? Certainly.

I vowed we would run, literally too.


True Beauty

As i looked out of the window my first thought was “WOW!!”. After coming back to my senses a while later i started wondering about how my life would have been if we had stayed together.

Some choices are hard to make but some are harder to implement , God! i missed her.

I couldn’t change the past but i smiled at the thought of seeing her in a few hours.

If someone asked me,that moment what true beauty really is i would tell it is meeting your true love after a long time.

And of course tell the fool to look out of the window.



He stumbled upon a territory in his mind that he hadn’t visited before , a dark place full of memories that invoked terror and left him perspired.

He wished he hadn’t so grown attached to her but it felt as if the universe left him with no choice.

She had left him and disappeared into the nothingness, a place he was so familiar with, until now.

As he prepared to join her he felt as if suddenly, the sky seemed black and the earth under him crack.

That was the moment he realised being fearless was just a myth.

He looked like a simple person and he was sitting in front of me in the restaurant.

He smiled when our eyes met and then he went back into his waiting state.

I was busy talking to my friend on the phone and eating in a hurry and suddenly i saw him eat and realised that what it means to enjoy eating your food.

In India, a lot of people prefer eating Rice items with bare hands because it kinda feels personal eating thus. But it is still considered Awkward in big restaurants.

It was Rice that he was eating but he was eating it with his hand enjoying every morsel.

Sitting there i understood happiness is doing what we love happily.


The Hidden Holes

It was only years later we discovered the holes.

It was neatly hidden behind a layer in the wall. The furniture guys were the first ones to tell us.

We didn’t know what to make of it? Why was it there? Surely it wasn’t meant for a Genie.

After weeks of speculation we gave up. Not i. I never gave up. The visit to the local library only increased.

I wanted to know.


It was the last day. They could cover it.

And i had to deal with an unknown mystery till the end of my life.


Two days later i was convinced why it was there.

To mislead the quest of something important.

I began my exploration.

He worked day and night on a story he wanted to complete.

The deadline looked too scary as days passed. Words kept disappearing , paragraphs kept getting deleted. He had almost completed it when the thought struck. He had to change the structure of the entire story , he had to be liked.

He gave up.

He wanted to be loved not just liked. He knew he would come back because no amount of anything could stop his love for writing.

He gave up on the battle to win the war.

He gave up on a masterpiece.

It isn’t a common sight when your enemy is invited to your Castle. More so when he has slain your brother.

My old man wanted peace and i didn’t blame him for that , it was an endless war and it was pointless to continue it ,now that half the kingdom’s gone.

I didn’t have the nerve to meet him so i stood far away watching King Verneite admiring our entrance.

I do not blame him , after all it was war.




I wanted to feel all these but i just couldn’t.

After all he had killed my Twin.

And i was busy planning to assassinate every single one of them.
