Love of a lifetime #FridayFictioneers

Niyati walked hand in hand with Rohan on her way back from someone’s birthday party.  It was late in the night and the moon was bright.  It felt like a dream.  At 16, her only wish was that Rohan should like her.  And here she was.  It didn’t end there. 

Just outside her home, he gave her a quick peck on the cheek and ran back to his house.  Niyati was in love.

Niyati jerked back to the present, in the hospital.   Rohan, lying on the bed with tubes attached, looking old.

A lifetime of love flickering to its end.

  1. I love that jump in time – you handled it well. I was going to say that ‘someone’s birthday party’ wasn’t specific enough, but of course, she might not remember since a whole lifetime has passed.

    1. The lady sitting beside her spouse hospital bed is reminiscing about all their moments in life..

      Thank you!
