"His work never really interested him. And so, once again, he found himself staring out of the window. It was in that moment that he felt something he never experienced before. He saw her, in her yellow dress. The wind played with her dress as she turned around and they locked eyes...... "

Winter came faster than expected. She wasn't prepared. She shivered uncontrollably, as she walked past the river. Her thoughts were in a blizzard. Seeing the wizard perform, all the bad memories were triggered. She was bewildered. Her father was a wizard with immense vigour and was her idol and advised her to never be a quitter. If it wasn't for liquor he would've never gotten sicker. Her father passed and that made her hate the wizards. She was scared and not prepared to be in this world without her father. Winter just brought this flow of memories she never wanted to confront. She was ready to leave everything behind and affront the world. But, something didn't let her and that was her fath...

Winter came faster than expected. She wasn't prepared. She shivered uncontrollable, as she walked past the house she had called home.

11 years had gone by so fast and for once she had managed to find that elusive feeling of contentment.Although, she yearned for more....she yearned for life itself, as if she had , prior to that profound epiphany been living in a vacuum.She knew, yet again, one of her self distraction phase was nigh.

This time it was going to be different...  3 days earlier she had decided to live and let live, to be whimsical in decision making, to be silly, carefree and abit impulsive.

Her well structured life felt too restrictive and conventional. She needed to upset th...

She shivered uncontrollably,as she walked past by looking left and right, she noticed an old man was kindling fire in front of a hut, soon she walked upto him. He welcomed her with a smile. Are you feeling cold " He asked" "Yes uncle"She said politely. Then he went inside and came back with a jacket and said"You wear this and go fast, it's getting dark and remember time and tides always beyond prediction, so carry your necessaries wherever you go ".

Storytime
Winter came faster than expected. She wasn't prepared.
She shivered uncontrollably as she walked past the houses with their lights shining brightly and smoke curling from the chimneypieces indicating a roaring fire inside.

She clutched the money in her pocket tightly,hoping upon hope it would be enough.

The bell above the door jangled as she entered and she felt the warmth sting her face.
The woman sitting at the counter stood to greet her,
" I'm so pleased to see you,come sit by the fire,you look frozen."
She helped her open her coat and cuddled the bundle wrapped inside.
" Hello little man ,come and get warm".
The baby smiled at her showing his one little tooth.
" I've saved so...

Winter came faster than expected. She wasnt prepared. She shivered uncontrollable, as she walked past the group of uniformed men and their hot lattes , trying not to draw attention to herself. They stopped talking amongst themselves to turn to the sudden noise of the shivering girl walking quickly past them.
   "You should probably get home. Curfew soon." The way he said it kept a calm air between the man who spoke and the girl trying to get home, but also left a linfering sense of authority.
   "Yes, sir, I'm going now," she spoke politely, without stopping. Its been different since the curfew was implemented last year. No warnings were given, just automatic convictions for breaking curfew....

Winter came faster than expected. She wasn’t prepared. She shivered, uncontrollably, as she walked past…

…the other people on the sidewalk, most of whom were walking rapidly against the freezing rain and buffeting wind. None spared a glance for the the woman obviously lacking the minimal resources to weather the rapidly approaching storm.

She frantically looked for a doorway deep enough to shelter her from the worst of the onslaught.

She caught his eye from across the street. He didn’t want to see her. There were so many like her. People living on the street. People without shelter. People without homes. People living in crowded isolation.

What could he do against such injustice? How cou...

He is giving up to hope. He cried and cried he keeps on apologizing without knowing who is wrong to her on his knee hoping it would bring her home to him. but it didn't she still walk away and left him wondering and angry. He saw her, walked away through his apartment's window. He would never admit it that was a goodbye because he saw tears running down on her cheek. If she is any other girl he will let her walk away. If she is any other girl he sure will be okay.

Now is winter again make he remember the fight and still thinking about her. he keeps on wondering what makes her ...

The ashtray. That familiarly putrid scent of Grandpa and fire. Ash to copper. The disgusting aftermath of domineerence. A whole genre built on the disgust of one man. I can still see how he looked when I was fifteen. Confused and raging against my defiance. Even at his worst he seemed a little boy. I even caught juvenile glint at fifteen; and believe me when I say that I used that intuition to my advantage. It wasn’t long before we were fisticuffs twice a month. When I was forced to return home for hunger or outstaying my welcome.

Real incident of my life... must read you will be shocked too :- (for english scroll down below)

एक दिन की बात है मैं दोपहर का खाना खा रहा था। और मैंने खाते हुए अपने पास से एक आवाज़ सुनी जो की मूषक के बच्चो की थी। उनकी माँ उनके पास नहीं थी और वो भूक से तड़प रहे थे।
शायद उनकी माँ उनके लिए खाना ढूंढने गई थी। मुझसे उनकी ये हालात देखि नहीं गई और मैंने उनके पास एक रोटी का टुकड़ा रख दिया पर वो इतने छोटे थे की वो उसको खा नहीं सकते थे। फिर मैंने सोचा की उनकी माँ तो खा ही लेगी आ कर और फिर इनकी भी भूक मिट जायेगी अपनी माँ के दूध से। और फिर तब ही उनकी माँ वहां आ गई पर उसके पास कोई खाना नहीं था। मुझे लगा की वो भूकी है इसलिए वो ये रोटी का टुकड़ा खा लेगी। पर मैं ये देख के हैरान रह गया उसने उस रोटी के टुकड़े को...

In 4 hours this year will end and still, she can't talk to him at all. She tried everything to get his attention but the man is so ignorant, arrogant, workaholic, evil brute, brutally cold-hearted handsome man. She tried to say hi to him in the middle of the street when they accidentally meet, he turned away and made her looked like a fool. She thinking maybe she made a mistake. She thought 'maybe he is a very shy man' so she tried another way which is giving him a basket of food like a picnic with a note.

          The music was playing with a special saxophone solo. She sat on her couch with a glass of wine, admiring him... Sitting at his desk, still working,she stood up and said " Man work, work  and just work.. Could you stop it sometime for the God's sake? Don't you know?  Today is Christmas Eve and spend little time with me and baby, rejoice in the name of Jesus " He put back his files in the shelf and had a smile at her and stood up. Sorry darling " he said " and gave a warm kiss on her cheek, while he was saying jokingly ".Work is worship darling " .

Cold night!

The music was playing with a special saxophone solo.
She sat on her couch with a glass of wine, admiring him....sitting at his desk, still working,
She stood up & lit a scented candle & tried to distract him from his work, all she wanted to do, was to spend some "WE" time with him.
She sent him some sweet & flirty texts just to distract him a bit, but could not really do it.

She felt something unusual about the night.
Slowly the fragrance was kind of hypnotising her, as if she was dreaming...
Heading into a quiet cold night with him, she wanted to snuggle in a large sweater & lay down next to him.
Skin to skin, holding him close, just to stay warm.
She just wanted to hol...

The Music was playing, with a special Saxophone Solo. She sat on her Couch with a glass of wine, admiring him... who was hot like molten lava#Mesmerising, Seducing; sitting at his desk, still working, she stood up and... walked towards him!
        That handsome tall guy, whoz eyes were blue with passion, whoz breath was provoking, whoz figure was inviting# That MACHO man who was the answer to all her questions, her fantasy hero, that perfect guy who finally made all her imperfections perfect.

Love you Jaan

The music was playing, with a special saxophone solo. She sat on her couch with a glass of wine, admiring him... Sitting at his desk, still working.
She stood up and she left,for she was fearful that her admiration might turn into her desire that shall defy her morale.
She turned back to see him work with such intense passion that she could only henceforth dream of on her bed.
She left,but,with a fragrance of her desire too strong to tickle him after she was gone.
He stopped working and so did the saxophone stop, which only purged out  silence of desire out of that room.
A silence too loud to break the glass of her husband's car's windows and hit her on her ears, caressing her neck.
Unsaid ...

"She had waited for this moment for years. And now it had finally arrived. She opened her eyes and....."

She never thought that she could meet him. She thought he was just her imagination. A character that was made from her crazy imaginative brain. Yet, she knows that the heat she felt when she dreamt of him is the same heat she felt right now. The hug that so warm that even word can't describe it. The one thing that can make hearts melt, that brings the smile to her lovely face.

She doesn't want to open her eyes afraid the warm of the hug would disappear. She did feel this hug is real and she keep hearing a man's voices saying 'ouch' every couple of minutes because she pinches him.

नाराज़ हूँ आपने आप से,
इन लफ़्ज़ों की मोहताज हो गयी ज़िंदगी ।

यह मैने कहा , क्या उसने कह दिया ?
एक भभकतीं आग हो गयी ज़िंदगी ।

एक हसीन सफ़र बनाना था इसे ,
पर ना जाने कब मिटके ख़ाक हो गयी
ज़िंदगी ।

The betrayals
Those negative comments against her
People just ghosting on her sincerity
And everything that she lost while being jn a relationship with a man she thought she would get married to
She lost her best of health
She lost her confidence
She lost herself
And the battle was too hard
She desperately wanted to get out of all this and live a better life for herself

Not knowing what and how to do things she started to walk down an unknown road.
Wasn't the case that she didn't fear at all, but she was too lost in her hurt that she wouldn't realise a thing happening to and around her

There was a man who noticed her and thought that something is wrong.
So he followed her and noticed that...

MERRY CHRISTMAS
