Withering Friendship

Samir was everyone's favorite in the school. Friends loved him, teachers adored him. Why wouldn't they? He was kind, compassionate even though he didn't realize their meaning in the literal sense.

Falling In Love

He checks his watch frantically inside the cab. Her train is scheduled to arrive in the next half n hour. The red signals at the traffic don't help his anxiety either.

Sounds of bomb exploding. A city under siege. A little boy watched from a narrow crack in the closet in which he hid. He could hear his heartbeat sounding like drum beats in the confined space.
