The luminescence from the street light was visible through the drapes. A thousand prayers rose in her throat like a lump. She struggled with herself. The sodden dress with stenciled roses a reminder of the previous evening. She wanted to stay in her comfort zone, but a crack had appeared there, leaving her in intermittent darkness. She had to think deeply on her next move!

Clutching a bunch of snowdrops in his hands he waited. She was a fine lady, and he, an uncouth lad. Her beautiful songs, sung in her dulcet voice had made him surrender his heart with reluctance.

Now he waited for her to approach. His eyes following her upturned face, the silver bracelet in her arm. He hoped she was sagacious enough to recognize true love in his charcoal-gray eyes and would let him lead her to the dance by her elbow. It all depended on her discernment.

Winding the scarf around her alabaster skin, she stood on tiptoe and gazed in the mirror. She affixed a bright smile to her lips and entered the drawing-room. It was necessary to preserve appearances. Emotions that simmered under her calm veneer were only a little visible on her face. She wanted her aunt to recognize what she was feeling behind her smile. The honeysuckle sweet and dulcet voice that she used to greet her hopeful suitor should have made him at least a bit weary. But it appeared that either he did not hear the sarcastic tone of her voice or was not concerned that he was easily delible in her heart. She had to muffle her mirthless laugh at the ease with which she was making a fool of them all.

Synchronicity

Sometimes, something unusual happens

A coincidence or a synchronous happening

That takes us by surprise and makes us wonder

If this is just happenstance or a lucky chance

Or maybe something bigger than us is at its back

Turning the hands of fate and pointing it to a certain direction

Making events happen in a sequence that’s not random

Guided by destiny towards a pre-arranged destination

~*~

In order to take her book to a believable conclusion, Shelly has to Concinnate the events in the story very skillfully. A peripeteia in the life of her main character turns him hostile and causes a fisher to appear in his impeccable facade. It took a lot of pages to tell that long story, and she was so immersed in writing that it felt to her that when her heroine drowned in her watery grave, Shelly herself experienced that pain. Just when she thought that the story was dealt with properly, she saw a catch in the plot. She could run with it but she had a feeling that she would be opening a door of incredulity into her story. She sat long and started at the vase on her desk. Suddenly she knew how the villain would meet his death.

~*~

A pathology does exists in our minds that we deify the pop stars and actors to such an extent that it erases our personal value system. We love and revere these people too much. Some even get their initials tattooed on their body parts! The deep need we have to worship at the feet of a person of fame and glamour just reduces our inner soul to a husk and we lose the ability that is entrusted to us, to be able to judge what is right and what is wrong because everything they do looks right to us. Try to be like a mighty oak which doesn’t leans on others but provides support, anchor yourself in your moral values.

MLMM- Sunday Writing Prompt “Opposites Attract”

Opposites

In looks, they were like peas in a pod

But were totally opposite in temperament

They say twins share so many traits

But they were poles apart in every aspect

If one was said to wear a saintly halo

The other they said was cursed by the devil

It follows that one was the epitome of goodness

While the other was the worst nightmare

How come this terrible mix landed on the heads

Of their bewildered parents they mused, puzzled

But put one in a soup and the other would

Do his utmost to help his brother in trouble

Despite being like day and night, the love

They shared was strong and unbreakable

Try but you won’t be able to knock aside

This bond that holds them together

~*~

The Challenge;

Write a story or a poem where opposites attract! Make sure to describe the personalities of the individuals involved. How do they complement one another? In what ways do they challenge each other?

If we are smart, the vicissitudes of fortune won’t rattle us. Life is like that. Sometimes the glass is half full and sometimes half empty. Men can be kings in the morning and paupers at night. No one has the Midas touch. The benignity of deeds can earn us a place of happiness, where the air is sweet and we beam smiles of contentment. It’s the only way to retrieve the lost peace.

“Mom, we have to make a model of a building. Do we have any empty boxes” Andy shouted excitedly as she entered the front door.

Mom shook her head and saw her daughter’s face drop in disappointment. “Well you can ask Mrs Jensen if she has any” she offered. Andy wasn’t keen to ask their next door neighbor but as there was an urgent need to get the box and get started on the project, she overcame her reluctance and went to the house next door. Mrs Jensen was an old lady, but a bit strange according to Andy. But luckily she had an empty box just the right size which she gave to Andy. “I think this is just perfect for your project” she told Andy as she handed it to her.

Andy made the building putting a lot of effort in the details. She was very happy with the finished project. Mom was also very impressed by her handiwork.

In the school when she was showing the project to her teacher and class, a strange thing happened. The windows of the building lit up just like windows in a real building. It looked like a miniature home. With shadows moving inside as well. Everyone was so impressed by it. Andy got an A plus on the project. Andy was perplexed by the lights and shadows. She was sure that Mrs Jensen has cast a magical spell on that box.

When Cindy went looking for the perfect gift for her son, she just couldn’t settle on any one thing. Crossing a shopfront she peeked in the display and saw something unusual.

Going in she asked the salesman to show it to her. It was a lamp made out of surplus pipes, in the form of a metal man. It was perfect for Daniel. She bought it and got it wrapped for him.

At home she gave the present to Dani, and told her that it was perfect for the newly renovated room. When he opened the gift, there was a strange expression on his face. He held his mom’s hand and lead her to his room. She saw that the same exact lamp was sitting on the side table. Puzzled she looked at her son for an explanation.

“Dad gave this to me today when I met him after school”

What a coincidence! Both the parents found the same unique present for their son. She wished they would have found more in common with each other to share their lives too.
