Fare Thee Well

June 22, 2014

It is 6 in the morning, I am told by the Warden. The last day of my life begins.

As a final wish I want to tell Malati that she is my first and only love and ask for her forgiveness.

For raping her twenty years ago on a college excursion in a drunken state.


This post is a part of Write Over the Weekend, an initiative for Indian Bloggers by BlogAdda. This week’s theme required bloggers to write a post on what would happen on the last day of one’s life and begin with “It is 6 in the morning”. It feels good to be back to writing fiction in my favourite 55 word format.

    Gosh! I admit that this one shocked me!! I wouldn’t know what to call it, so well written and the aim was to shock us and you did. It forces us to think bout our actions and deeds as human beings. You’ve touched hearts.
