A life event, that changed everything else

"they lay down in the middle of the field. It was dark but the stars were shining bright. It was quiet... Everyone was sleeping but they were awake, right there, right then, together.
When all of a sudden, she broke the silence and whispered I love you.

It has been two months now since they got hitched. Since then, everything else has changed, from her last name to the way she used to be. It was like swimming against the tide for her.

It all started 5 months back. They drove by the car to meet at the river side cafe. It was her favourite place, as the reflection of them in water ...

they lay down in the middle of the field. It was dark but the stars were shining bright. It was quiet... Everyone was sleeping but they were awake, right there, right then, together.

When all of a sudden they heard someone's approaching footsteps, and the crumble of leaves underneath them. Slow and measured steps. Their eyes quickly darted to eachother as if to make sure they weren't mistaken, to make sure it wasn't their own imagination. As the confirmation of reality settled in, their eyes narrowed and ears picked up, in an attempt to gauge the coming danger.

Before the intruder came out in the open, they had camouflaged themselves well between the nearby trees, opposite to the danger. Bu...

           The puppy ran off as soon as she put him on the ground. She ran after him through the park and finally was able to pick him up again when he stopped in front of a bench. Tired of running she sat down. Less than a minute later another puppy came running towards the bench followed by a handsome guy. He smiled at her and said " My puppy loves your puppy, why don't we love too" Hello!  Hello! Johney where are you? She asked angrily. He said embarrassingly " I wish if we had those puppies with us now "

I’m afraid you might not like me, when you meet me, she texted him. Three dots appeared on her screen, indicating he was typing. But, then they suddenly disappeared.

“Well, that’s that, I guess.”
She sighed fatalistically and reflected, I’m not any good at this whole dating game thing. It’s been so long since I’ve been on the market.

Gah! “On the market.” What a horrible idiom. I’m not for sale . . . except maybe I am marketing myself as “damaged goods” when I tell men what I told him. WHY did I say that to him?

“Well. I don’t want to be accused of false advertising . . .”

There it was again, this language of sales, as if I’m a consumable commodity. Where on earth was this idea that wome...

                   Love By Chance.

"I'm afraid you might not like me, when you meet me, she texted him. 3 dots appeared on her screen... Indicating he was typing. But then they suddenly disappeared and he went offline. She was just about to switch her phone off but suddenly a notification popped up. She clicked it and it opened their chat and he had texted "Open your door." She was nervous and confused. When she opened the door, he was standing there with balloons, a cake and a champagne bottle. He said "I love you." They hugged and spent an amazing night together.  Little did she know that he already loved her, from the very beginning of their first meet.

           Unbeaten
The ground below him seemed to crumble down and he was left alone once again.

Standing on the cross roads of life, I believed that I had failed again.
The loop of negativity was really soothing
Just keep on enchanting these words.
"I am a failure" and I gurantee you
It's a really comfortable place to be because it requires no efforts. Just succumb to all the negativity that sucking you from inside and keep on blaming life.

And there I was all over again standing alone on the cross roads with cluelessly wandering where to go. So I chose the easiest path. Can anyone guess?

Suddenly so many voices started coming from crowd
Drugs, alcohol until someone shouted ending life...

The ground below him seemed to crumble down and he was left alone once again. He wished it were not true but life said it was.

He first felt outpaced when he was in school and his only friend Samuel had to leave town. He felt defeated again when his new friend Danny died in an accident. Life kept pulling him down over and over again taking away all the people he loved. And then one day his father too left for his heavenly abode from where nobody returns. Not only did the ground below him seem to crumble, he drowned in despair.

Christopher was not really alone. He had his mother and brother to talk to. But he was alone in a different city in a job with people for whom he was a valuable empl...

"The puzzled thieves 😉"

All 6 of them sat around the table when they heard someone banging loudly, on the front door. For a second everyone froze. Could it be?....", if its the police, there life is gone.
The situation had began four hours before. It was when two among the known thieves decided to rob a diamond merchant in the city. They broke into the shop and took all the diamonds they could find within a short span of time. Everything was clean and perfect and no evidence was left to trace.
However, the trouble began later on. Thry had taken 301 diamonds and as and when they tried to devide it equally 1 diamond was left and was arguing for the 1 extra diamond.
Listening to their argument...

Is it possible , that the one friend they left behind , is back after so many years in search of them.
They all have met together after 7 years , for the first time after that incident occurred. A heartbreaking and dangerous accident , which lead to the death of one of their close friend. An incident which changed a group of 7 to 6.
The time seem to be the same , as it was 7 years back , the cold weather , everyone going for a holiday into the mountains and enjoying the chilly winds.
Difference was just that the chilly winds now , were c...

                         Silence.

Two cups of tea turned cold as time passed by. In the background, the sound of a couple fighting as the child watched TV. Little did the kid knew about why were his parents fighting. The 13 year kid stood by the door to hear what were they fighting about. He heard them fighting over their marriage. He heard his mother shouting over and over that she was married to the man without her concern and was beaten up by his dad every single day. The kid went inside and finally broke his silence. He saw his parents watching television with a show on and realized that all the arguments were of the show and not of his parents. Without disturbing them he left the room ...

"Two cups of tea turned cold as time passed by. In the background, the sound of a couple fighting as the child watched TV and the sad song of their mind started , feets shivering in thought of getting apart , leaving behind the part of their souls, shine of eyes but two beauties were messed up when radio beats turned on , on the T.V serial of two.
