She was on her bed, humming away a tune. Her head was dangling from the edge of the bed, she enjoyed the sensation, when she swallowed her saliva, lying in that position. 

"Brain Freeze", she screamed to the empty room, and got up with a start. "Oh my head", she clutched her head with her fingers, nails digging into her scalp, fighting away dizziness. 

A smile stretched from ear to ear , "im done, tadaa", she screamed. "Now now now, who wants to look pretty??, meeeee" . She laughed loudly and stopped abruptly as her phone rang.

"Hello mamma, Im good... yea.. hmmm.. ok.. byeee. Love you too". She rolled her eyes and threw the phone on her bed. She tiptoed upto her mirror, and started applying kajal. She sat back and looked at herself "Wow, pretty".


"We can work it out, Please please listeeennnn" , she sobbed hysterically " i donno what il do without youu... please .. stoppp.. dont.. i love you... pleaseeeee...." She held onto his arm, pleading for another chance. Her kajal smudged with tears , ran down her cheeks. She was on her knees, begging him to stay. She stammered for the first and last time ever, saying everything feasible to make him stay. it was over for him. It had been from a long time. 

He bent down to her , and released his arm from her grip , "Its over, it has been from a long time, im sorry". He walked away ignoring her every word to make him stop. 

She cried herself to the floor,and lay there, howling away in pain.


She threw imaginary petals on the bed. She looked behind her and blushed "is this good enough?" She giggled away, and jumped on the bed, and sat like a newly wedded bride. "Ohh, come don't make me wait". She giggled away." ohh, i forgot" she clutched her palm to her mouth. 

She heaved herself off the bed, and walked towards her cupboard, she sat down with a thud, and looked at the lifeless body of her ex-boyfriend.


"I just need to talk to you, for the last time, please come over, i need you to do this for me Please", she pleaded.

"For the last time, alright", he warned

"Yes, last time", she replied.

He walked in to her apartment. She stood with a smile on her lips. "last time baby" She slid a Pistol, and shot him point blank, even before he could comprehend what had happened.

She pulled his lifeless frame to her room, it took her four hours. She placed him comfortably , and sat looking at him.


Her phone started ringing, "mamma il call you back", she shouted into the phone, and threw it on the bed. Her Phone had an empty cavity , where the battery once used to be. 

She went over to the balcony, "Pring pring" she mouthed, and laughed.

This post has been published by me as a part of the Blog-a-Ton 42; the forty-second edition of the online marathon of Bloggers; where we decide and we write. To be part of the next edition, visit and start following Blog-a-Ton. The theme for the month is "COLOR"

"What is the Color of Love then", she asked , brushing away stray strands playing with her face. She was anxiously waiting to hear his voice.

"Love, mmmm, well People usually say its Red", he replied.

His voice was deep, and Husky. She loved the sound of his voice, especially, the alteration in his voice when he said anything with 'R'.

"So, you have never stepped outside? ", he questioned. She could sense the curiosity and shock in his voice. She laughed, crinkling the corners of her eyes.

He noticed that she crinkled her nose when she laughed, and bit her upper lip, to stop laughing. He found that beautiful in her.

"Well, its difficult for me to go out, Im accident prone you know", she shrugged, gesturing dramatically towards her eyes.

He was sitting in front of her, yet she looked faraway. However for her, she was looking at his "Voice" and imagining as to how he looked.

She hesitated a little, shifting uncomfortably, "I want to know how you look" , she said, holding out her hands to thin air. He held her hands and placed them over his face. She fingers traced the outline of his forehead, taking in his broad forehead, and felt the length of his nose, his cheeks, his jawline. Her index finger traced the outline of his lips. She quivered, so did he. She pulled back her hands and smiled.

"Dont you want to know how you look", he asked. She smiled, and rested her chin on her palms, tilting her head. "mm hmmm, i want to".

"Well you have beautiful Eyes", she laughed at the irony of what he said. he continued ignoring her laugh, "and when you laugh, there are stars in your eyes". Her smile faded, and her eyes became moist. There was an awkward silence between them.

"Cmon, lets go" , he said, pulling her up by her arm.

"Whaat, where", she uttered confused. "I..I cant come outside, im .. well i just cant", she said pulling free of his grasp.

"Of course you can, come with me, il keep you safe, trust me"

She smiled and nodded, "But ...." She heard him moan, "ok ok ... but i need my ..."

"No you dont, let me be your cane today", he held her hand.

She took a deep breath, and followed him.

They stepped out of her house, she was holding onto him. A car sped by , startling her. She gripped his arms tightly, and was almost on the verge of tears.

"I .. I.. no no ... i need to go back"

"Sssshhhh, im here , with you. I promise you, il not let anything happen to you... ok.. im here, dont worry..sshhh ... im here"

She swallowed back her fears, and let loose the grip on his arm. She forced a smile. "okay"

He smiled and hugged her. "Lets do this"

He described everything he saw, worry lines gave away, to a smile, and eagerness to know more.

"You cant see the color, but you can definitely feel it", he told, brushing away a few strands from her face.

"I guess i hear Red now", she smiled, his favorite smile.
