A balmy morning, gentle breeze sauntering across the corridors sent an alluring invite. She thus ran across, bare feet.
She stopped midway to drench in the shower of the golden rays, filling her heart with an aubade by the rustling leaves, chirping birds, whispering zephyr.
Playful waft kissed her cheeks, tousled her hair, fluttered her red dress. She stood motionless as if under influence. Maybe she was enamored by the carefree lightness of the moment.
A wave of pain jostled her out of dream when the lady constable kicked her back, yelling, “Kitane baar bola, foothpath pe nahi sone ka”*
Wishing all my readers a “Very Happy Women’s Day”.
This Women’s day, I decided to challenge myself with the task that I have not tried before but always wanted to do. This coincidentally is the week of Write Bravely challenge… Festival of Words! Took the opportunity to prove a brownie to self. This is my first attempt to write a perfect 100 word story, a challenge that I set for myself. When I placed the period at the end of the story, it rushed in the sense of accomplishment which I suppose will stay put with me for long! Day is made!
How are you celebrating the Women’s day this year, I am eager to know! Do share…
*Kitane bar bola, footpath pe nahi soneka – How many times did I warn you not sleep on footpath
