They froze on hearing angry raised voices.

“It does feel like home, doesn’t it?”, asked Rachel, and Mike nodded his head in agreement. His pale face and vacant eyes peered at Rachel’s equally sad and ashen face.

“I hate my life and I abhor you”, yelled Asha, but Raj wasn’t about to let her get away with this insult without any repercussions. His retort singed her soul, “I rue the day I married you”.

They stormed off to different rooms and retired for the night. The gloomy house was as silent as the cemetery Rachel and Mike were buried in.

  1. Oh my. Now that makes me wonder if Rachel and Mike were a couple who fought like Raj and Asha, or the kids of such a fighting family, that their souls felt at home with the yelling match. Interesting take on the prompt.

  2. Sometime before… I wrote in one of my comments that your stories leave room for reader’s interpretation, and that indeed is a quality of a good writer…
    loved your story…. it complements the prompt completely
