“Yes! The SDF rescued us in Syria. After this short break, I’m commissioned to Israel.” Manasvi couldn’t move after accidentally overhearing this one sentence. As if a thick coat of fresh wet cement glued her feet to the terrace floor. Her heart was beating hard… so hard that it threatened to leap out of her throat. She chewed a part […]

Tangles & Ties : Chapter 62: Yearning For You!

Overwhelmed with the response to the last chapter. I don’t have words to thank you. It seems easy to write chapters and updates, but I become uneasy and tongue-tied when people comment on those. I don’t know what to say – ‘So, thank you! Life is beautiful with you girls around me. Stay blessed. Stay happy. Lots of love.’ Wish […]

Tangles & Ties: Chapter 60: Incurable

It was quite dark into the night. There was no sight of human habitation at a long distance. Tall trees lined the narrow deserted road till as far as eyes could see. The branches and leaves swaying due to the cool breeze made a swishing sound, chilling her blood till her bones. Other than these sounds, there were only night […]

Tangles & Ties: Chapter 59: Addiction

Next Morning… The sunrays seeped inside the bedroom through fine creeks in the shutters at the tall windows along one wall. Manik was the first one to open his eyes. His body was yet to move as he couldn’t decide whether to move, at all… or forego the thought of it… Nandini had been sleeping blissfully on his left shoulder […]
