Thin Walls

The walls between dreams and reality are often thin. Emotions, events, and epiphanies often bleed through the cracks, finding their way into dormant minds.

Two girls, figments of a dormant mind, find themselves companions on a convoluted journey. They are mysteries to one another, unconsciously linked in unrevealed ways, they are the messengers sent to a sleeper.

Sent through thin walls.

Am open to read-for-read requests: please message me privately if interested.

Four short stories, please click the pics to read. I am a new writer and would like to hear your criticism and feedback whether in public or private.

The first is a story in an Indian context (and the only one in an Indian context so far).

The story of how an Indian woman discovers herself, from being unquestioning and accepting of the social structures around her, all the way to making her own decisions and standing on her own feet.

And is then presented with a unique dilemma. What will she decide?

<a href=“https://www.wattpad.com/story/91258947-indian-fiction”><img src=“http://i64.tinypic.com/rvbk0i.jpg”></a>

VERY SHORT STORIES is rated # 203 in the Wattpad rankings for WICKED stories! Thanks for your support and keep the comments and feedback coming in!

This is a collection of one-shots - terribly tiny tales as I call them - all under 10 sentences each and most under 5. Please do read and let me know how you like them:

<a href=“https://www.wattpad.com/myworks/105181642-very-short-stories”><img src=“http://i43.tinypic.com/2l91gnc.jpg”></a>

The third is a very very short tale - less than 100 words - never trust an old lady who calls you over for dinner!

This isn’t in the collection above cos it was the first I ever wrote on wattpad, so sentimentality aside, I also don’t know how to add it into the collection without losing the reads and comments! So alone it stands:

<a href=“https://www.wattpad.com/193165530-a-short-tale-of-death”><img src=“http://i40.tinypic.com/n2ed8z.jpg”></a>

INDIGNANT INNOCENCE He had proof of his wife’s infidelity and plotted how to leave her. It didn’t quite turn out the way he expected.

A short, one-page story with a twist in the tail that will make you gasp. Feel free to read and comment!

Music to Watch Boys and Girls To

“Oh, why must you be a lie, my love?”

Saisse Remy is a heartbreaker. Her love is fraudulent, and the anguish she causes is the reality. Boys and girls alike dream of her feathery touch and cherry painted lips, enamored by her bronzed skin and loving brown eyes. Caught up in the web of lies she’s spun. So, what happens when the victims of her perjury conspire against her, and she’s the one who becomes entangled in a series of falsehoods?

Wattpad wouldn’t let me use a link or an image, but this story is on my page.
