The Denouement


“Shouldn’t you be on the Mumbai flight?” Angel asked.

Laksh shrugged. “A brief detour.”

“Weren’t you dying to meet your sister?” Angel was still smarting. Just my luck – one decent guy in the batch and I look like his sister.

“You can resuscitate me.” Her heart fluttered. If only.

It was a fun flight back to Delhi. At least they were friends.

“Bye.” Angel said.

“Thanks for your company.”

Despite herself, Angel blushed. His eyes were warm. Too warm.

“My Namaste to Didi.” She reminded herself.

“Drop me at the Departure gate?”

Angel stared.

“By the way, I am an only child.”

FFftAW #71: Crush(ed)

photo-20160620054715745 As Angel entered the library, her pace slowed and her breath quickened. She cast a quick glance at the corner seat. It was empty.

“Cheer up! Your crush will soon be here.” Divya teased.

My crush?” Angel sneered. “I couldn’t care less.”

“There comes Laksh.” Divya grinned. “Your fan is cute.”

Feeling her color rise, Angel sat down and opened her books.

She sensed his eyes on her but she kept hers determinedly lowered. Until curiosity overpowered her. She looked up to find his eyes trained on her – an intense yet pleading look in them.

Embarrassed, she gathered her books and trotted off.

To her horror, Laksh followed her. “Wait!” he caught up with her just outside the door.

Red-faced, heart thudding Angel wondered what she would say if he came clean about his crush – dared she also…

“Excuse me?” She stared.

“I said I am sorry I didn’t mean to stare. You look exactly like my elder sister, a mother to me, miss her so much…”

Ornate Doors

This is in response to the Daily Post’s Discover Challenge on Doors. The City Palace (built between 1729 – 1732 AD) at Jaipur, India has these 4 magnificent doorways. The four gates (known as Ridhi Sidhi Pol) are adorned with themes representing the four seasons and Hindu gods.


The Northeast Peacock Gate (with motifs of peacocks on the doorway) representing autumn and is dedicated Lord Vishnu.


The Southwest Lotus Gate represents the summer season and is dedicated to Lord Shiva and Goddess Parvati.


The Rose Gate with repeated flower pattern representing winter season and dedicated to the Goddess.


The Northwest Green Gate, also called the Leheriya (or wavy) gate. The greenery represents spring and is dedicated to Lord Ganesha.
