Legend In Making
Published on 09-08-2017 08:43 PM
That was it! My vision of winning the country's first ever Olympics gold medal has shattered completely. I could not clearly remember what happened two days ago because I was too busy having fun with my childhood friends with booze. I thought I had it in control but I miscalculated and BAMM!

Horrors of War
Published on 09-08-2017 10:31 PM
        The pitter-patter of distant gunfire, occasional sounds of airplanes swooshing over followed by a thunderous explosion can be heard. It was night time but the moon was in its prime and showered its silvery light all over the desolated landscape. I was walki  Read More...

The Keys
Published on 09-05-2017 11:02 AM
                 Music is art for the ears. Killing is more like a full body experience when it comes to art. It's sort of like performing arts. There's just a magnificent thrill to the flick of a knife and the warm ever-so-comforting threshold of a gun a  Read More...

Silent Signs
Published on 08-21-2017 05:48 PM
“It’s time to go to school.” A singsong voice echoed above her as she opened her eyes. Sarah Virtus looked into the smiling, bright eyes of her mother. “Good morning, sweetheart.” Her mother said, her golden locks of hair falling over her face majestically. Sarah would   Read More...

RED
Published on 09-02-2017 08:14 PM
It was finally the end of my five-hour shift and I sighed in relief. Pulling off the grease-stained apron from my waist, I collected my bag and redid my braid. It had been a long day, what with it being a public holiday, the restaurant was crowded with customers. I had my fair share of noisy c  Read More...

Chaos of Cinderella
Published on 08-24-2017 11:58 PM
Once, there was a wooden house on top of the hill surrounded by pine trees, wild flowers and cowsheds. Magically, a little tiny glittery star falls from the sky. It landed right on a rose plant in front of the wooden house. The star changed into a fairy godmother. Interestingly, there is anothe  Read More...

The Amethyst Possessor
Published on 08-28-2017 12:15 AM
Violet was first aware of the coldness of the air and the coarseness of the earth rubbing at the back of her shirt. The ground felt as if she was on a bed of earth and rocks. Weird, because the last time she recalled, she was searching for her corgi, Shibe near the field. How did she end up on the g  Read More...

Memories worth smiling about.
Published on 09-09-2017 09:29 AM
Her head rested against the window panes as she watched the bright lights of the city dance across the seat in front of her. Travelling to places in buses were never a favourite of hers, but tonight was definitely an exception.  22 years of living up to this very moment yet never once had she e  Read More...

My Little One

It happened one rainy days. I was just about to go to bed when I heard it. A faint cry among the heavy rain. I took a look at the wall clock in my living room. It was already fifteen minutes past one. Cautiously, my eyes wondered around the room, looking for some movement. None was spotted. Releasin  Read More...

The Storm Twins
Published on 09-12-2017 11:56 PM
"A storm is coming," a weather reporter announced on a TV in display. My walking faltered as I inhaled steadily. I glanced up to the dark clouds above and felt the cool winter breeze. The voices of the crowd around me toned down as the thoughts rage in my mind. "Storms are beautiful... Just like you  Read More...

The Child Who Came from The Stars
Published on 08-31-2017 09:49 PM
My heart crumpled when I heard my brother’s weak yelp. My brother, Eric, with his 180cm height, was all cornered up against the wall, squirming with fear. I was in no position of helping. However painful a sight it was, I must bear with it. Dad, holding a long cane in his right, and grabbing E  Read More...

Heart's Confession

Like it or not things change, either before a person falls in love or after but when it does, it has been always for the betterment. No true love brings the worst out of people. Lack of love does that. Coming back to my point, similarly how falling in love and being in love can be magical, confessin  Read More...
