Letter from a ghost!
A cold night, a warm black hoodie, hands in the pockets, and headphones in the ears. Eyes half-closed, as steps, blindly followed the usual route on the tune of “Perfect“.

Live through stories!
“I am not the most patient person in the world, am I?” Fidgety fingers and feeble foot-taps had already given it away, but his impatience would still require a nod of confirmation from her. “I don’t know about the world, but you are!” The smile on her face had a hinge of naught in itContinue reading “Live through stories!”
Enjoy the ride!
“So, its a no?” His eyes were fixated on her face. She never had any control over her expressions – her face spilled the secrets much before her words would join the act. “You know the situation!” This time, the act was an unenthusiastic euphemism. “You know me for a long now.
