Crime or No Crime #FridayFictioneer

Jatin Marwah, the young owner of Residency Hotel, was found dead in his office, leaving behind his entire fortune for Shimona, his charming wife. Cardiac arrest, that’s what the doctors declared. He was known to be an alcoholic.

Standing beside the round table and looking at the array of towering glasses and the tea cups in the hotel lobby, Shimona looked captivating in her white embroidered Kurta salwar. There was a faint bewitching smile on her pink lips, “When marital rape and adultery are not crimes, then choosing a path of freedom isn’t too,” she said to herself.

She loved those Slippers until… #FFfAW


If there was one thing Latika was obsessed with was her slippers. She had innumerable pairs of slippers still she could never resist herself from buying more. She was getting married to Saarthak and was planning an entirely new collection of them for her trousseau.
“Don’t you think 15 pairs are a bit too much?” her mother questioned.
“Mom, I can’t go on repeating the same for every party,” was her answer.
A month later, she came back to her mom. Her face full of bruises, her eyes swollen and blue. There were red marks of slippers on all over her body.
She cried in her mother’s arms, “You were right mom. I shouldn’t have bought them!”

The Ballerina

She was born to dance. She was learning ballet since she was 5. Her dream was going to be true. She will be performing at the biggest dance competition. 
“Sam,” she called her boyfriend to break the news. She told him about it, excitement clearly showed in her voice. 
They fixed up a date to celebrate.
He brought her chocolates and strawberries. 
He kissed her and dropped her outside her house.
In a flash of a second, she was flying and thrown yards away. 
“Your feet shall not dance on anyone else’s tunes.” He grinned evilly.

#Bar-A-Thon Day 5: Give Me Five

“Dad, I told you I don’t want to get married.”

“Just meet the boy once, after that you can decide whether you want to go ahead or not.”

Knock, Knock…

She opened the door, “Sushant?”

Happy and surprised to see her college best friend, she could not hold herself, “so you are the boy…”

“Ya, it’s all because of your dad. Somehow he got to know that we liked each other and…”

“And I called his parents to talk about you two shy birds. Mr Verma was too happy with the proposal. So? Give me Five!”
