‘Turn left,’ she said.

He ignored her and went straight ahead.

‘No prooooblem.  Take the left after the next signal,’ she said again.  ‘Sam.  I lived here.  I know the route to the theater.  Why don’t you listen?’

‘Nah.. this is the right road.  We will get there on time,’ he said and revved up the car engine.

‘Here.  Put this App on,  it will tell you the directions if you don’t want to listen to me.  I don’t want to get lost or miss the movie.’

‘We are not lost.  And I hate that lady telling me ‘turn left’ ‘turn right’,  she doesn’t even say please. Feminists,’  he shook his head.

She sat resigned and observed Sam from the corner of her eye.

This was the fourth time in as many weeks that he did this.  And they always missed the movie.   Next time,  she will drive.   She decided.

“Mani, look! Visitors,’ Prabhu smirked as Mani peeped through the window.

“Really?  Let’s have some fun.  I will make the curtains fly and close the doors.,” Mani said as he went to fetch the strings to add special effects.

“We are ghosts.  They should fear us.  We have a reputation to maintain,” Prabhu snorted as he changed into a white gown with a lighted lamp in his hand.

“Where are my anklets?  They sound eerie in the dark.”

Meanwhile,  the visitors were walking up the rocks to reach the castle.  Continue reading

‘A little birdie told me you are not happy with the groom.  But why lock us in here?’ Neha said to her sister.  Disha looked away quickly and nodded.

‘The wedding is tomorrow.  It is too late.  Mom and Dad will never agree,’  Neha continued.

Disha nodded with tears streaming silently.

‘They know but they … .’

Neha hugged her.

On the wedding night,   the groom was shocked when he lifted his bride’s veil and his eyes met the scared Neha’s.

‘Let me explain,’ said Neha and told him the story.

Everything happens for a reason,  he thought and smiled.

Nani refused to leave the bench.  It was dark and Renu was getting worried.  Renu had never had problems tending to Nani in the past year as her nurse.  She took Nani out on her wheelchair everyday.  It was the first time they had come to this park.  Nani had insisted on sitting on the bench.  An unusual request,  but Renu obliged.

‘Come Nani.  Bhaiyya will scold me if we are late,’ she said.

Nani giggled.

‘Bhaiyya would scold me too.  But Ajit will not let me go home without his kiss.  Lets wait a bit.  He’s late,’ said Nani.

‘Sitting alone?  Isn’t it your big day?’ he asked.

‘Just feeling a bit dizzy,’ she said without looking up.  She knew he would follow her.

‘Why can’t we get married?’ she asked through her tears.

‘You know, we can’t,’  he said,  his mouth set grim hearing her ask this the umpteenth time.

‘B..but it doesn’t matter.  So what if you don’t have a job.  You can work for Papa. and.. and you can help him run the business.  It doesn’t matter.’

‘It does.  To me.  Life is not as simple and rosy. You will hate me then,’ he said quietly.
