Beside – A Story

I am participating in the Blogging from A to Z April Challenge.

The letter of the day is B and my short story of 55 words begins with this alphabet.

Image for Beside- A Story #AtoZChallenge @sulekkhaBeside himself with grief, he had walked into the sea, uncaring of the rising water. The deserted beach had offered him the opportunity of unburdening his soul by plunging into the crashing waves. If only his sin was pardonable? The fishermen spotted him disappearing into the waters and rescued him. Was he saved or condemned?

  1. When overcome by grief, everything, even salvation seems to be a curse. But he will bless this moment when his mind is clear. Lovely , as usual, Sulekha 🙂

    1. Shailaja, I am so glad I participated in this challenge, love the daily interactions with fellow bloggers 🙂 thanks

  2. I like that you end the story with a question…at times things in life aren't so black and white and the answer is unknown. Good one!

  3. Interesting. I would guess saved because nothing in the universe is left to chance. He was meant to live on and learn more. ♥

    1. I am a big fan of the Universe, so love your comment 🙂 Maybe he will learn something here too.
