The mirror shows a vaguely familiar reflection.

The visible and the invisible scars stare back at her.

Some day her love would tame the monster inside him, too.

‘Can I do something without your nagging, please’, he retaliated.

He felt the note in his pocket as he wearily walked down the bridge.

People rushed past him.

Nobody even looked his way.

They must’ve things on their minds.

He read the note again, “I’m walking to the bridge. If one person smiles at me on the way, I will not jump.”

And he jumped.

She bent close, jaw clenched tight as she focussed on the task.

It slipped from her fingers yet again.

She squared her shoulders and gingerly picked it up.

I shouldn’t have given in to the demand of a 5-year old!

The sparkle in her eyes as she finished decorating the cupcake was oh! so glorious!

The room was silent, totally, in a hush like the air in the treetops.

A flurry of activity on the other side of the room, lifted their hopes.

Aha! Somebody would pick them up and imagine the world created by written words.

Hardships have hit me like waves lashing against the boulders.

One wave disappeared and another one shaped up to knock me down again.

Yes, they’ve turned the wounds into wisdom, struggle into sapience.
