Countless – A Story

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

Today’s alphabet is C. My 55 fiction begins with this cute letter ‘C’

Countless - A Story #AtoZchallenge @sulekkha

Countless emotions clouded his heart and mind during that brief instant he was submerged in the waters. He heard her smile, saw her laughter, smelt her touch and touched her affectionate scent. She was with him in his watery grave while he had abandoned her on a bright and sunny day. She had loved him.

      Smile, it makes (y)our day!

  1. Oh Sulekha., very emotional post today. I wanted to stretch out my hand and dragged him out of the water… You have an amazing way with words, lady:-) Way to go!

  2. "He heard her smile, saw her laughter, smelt her touch and touched her affectionate scent." — this is so Gulzar-like! Great line. Speaks so much of love, and lovingly.

  3. How sad is this!! I have often wondered what people think while they're drowning – images of people they love would surely be in their minds. Your protagonist seems to be dealing with heavy guilt.

    1. He is literally drowning in guilt… I wonder too about how they must feel before they lose consciousness πŸ™
