The List

When she was younger, like 12 or 13, she had a List. It started out with 2-3 things. Then as she grew older, the list became longer. It was no longer about what she truly wanted deep inside. It was also about what society dictated, what her parents would’ve wanted for her, to make them […]

Space

So there she was, with her worldly possessions, out on the street, thrown out by her landlord. 2 suitcases, a lamp, a box of books and a paper bag with some odds and ends. She felt strangely liberated. Not knowing what was going to happen to her. She had no idea where she’d stay that […]

Party

They clinked glasses and smiled at each other. After all that heartache, screaming and pain, they could now finally look straight into each other’s eyes and be friends. The assets were split amicably, the house was going to be sold and they would share the proceeds 50-50. She touched his face, and for a split […]

You make me out to be a big loser. You think I’m a cheat, that I’m lazy and worthless. You don’t realize that the other directors and your own employees laugh at you for being so naive and trusting of them. You don’t realize how smart they are, how they’ve cheated you of millions of […]

Disgruntled

Do you know what your problem is? You’re indulgent. You take initiatives only if it is to your benefit. You don’t have the spirit of team work. You’re a one-man show, thinking that you can solve all the problems of this company on your own without the help of your team mates. You think you’re […]

Lipstick

This mess. It was driving him crazy. Her lipsticks and make-up strewn all over the dressing table. He stood there for a while, looked at the mess, his hands on his hips. When they got comfortable, this was what happened. He looked towards the direction of her singing, lilting voice. She was in the bathroom, […]

Bingo

When they decided to get a pet 2 years ago, he was all-enthusiastic, with fervent plans for taking care of it, how he’d give it a bath every week, take it for walks every evening after he returned from work. How he’d treat it like the child they could never have. Without asking, she knew […]
