I’m participating in the #WordsMatter Blog Hop for October 2019, hosted by the lovely trio Corinne, Shalini and Parul. The theme for this month is ‘It’s not that time of the year without.’ I’m trying my hand at flash fiction this time. If you think it works, do please let me know, in the comments below.
‘It’s not that time of the year without….’.
It was pouring incessantly, since the night before. And, the next morning, when the sun shone brightly in cerulean skies, my man in green walked right in, through the front door, taking us completely by surprise. He knew there wouldn’t have been a better way to make us happy!
As he lifted Piu’s little frame off the ground, she squealed in delight, while I rushed to hug him, chiding him for leaving us alone for so long. There were laughter, tears and smiles galore. Three days later, he left for the front, but this time, he left us with beautiful memories. Memories that we now treasure forever!
His duty took him away from us but left a gaping hole inside—one that refuses to heal even with time.
Although festivals come and go, they hold no meaning for me now. It’s not that time of the year without him. Not anymore. Never will be. But, life goes on, nonetheless!
I received this tag from Anagha Yatin who blogs at Canvas With Rainbow. It’s my pleasure to pass on this tag to Amrita at Health Wealth Bridge. There are 38 of us on this Blog Hop and it will be spread over 3 days—4th, 5th and 6th October 2019. Do follow the #WordsMatter Blog Hop and prepare to be surprised!
