Friday Drabble: Let’s Move on!

Friday Drabble

I always have a problem while writing is that, i can’t keep that word count in my mind. So my posts sometimes become lengthy. So  influenced by a fellow blogger  Lenore, I’ve decided to devote the next few (or more) Fridays to drabbles.

What is a drabble?  “a drabble is a very short story of exactly 100 words.”

Just as Steve and Lenore do when they drabbles, I invite you to participate and suggest you tag your post with ‘Friday Drabble’ and use the hashtag #fridaydrabble on Twitter.



English: Broken heart sewn back together

Holidays got over. Now it was time to go back to college. I was standing near the entrance of the bus, saying “good bye” to my parents.

Suddenly, I saw her coming towards the same bus. We both looked at each other, with  anger, shame, pain & little bit love in our eyes.

Heart started beating faster; mind slowly asked me a question “Will she talk to me this time, after so many years?” She came and went passed me as if we never knew each other.

At last my heart said to my mind , “Let’s end it here”.

No of words- 100

    • Thanks a lot Mj :)
      I am not sure, if i can post a longer version of this one in my blog. Still i will give it a try :)
      But i think you must give it a try to this challenge of posting something in 100 words, it’s really fun and challenging.

    • Thanks a lot Darla.
      While writing this one, I never knew that only these100 words could help me, to see two of my most fav writers in my comment section after such a long time. :)

  1. thank you Arindam..
    for introducing some thing new in my knowledge.. :)
    the Drabble
    i will try this out too :D
    and the story was good too..but the end-it-here part was a bit emotional.
    visit my blog too when ever you like :)

    • Thanks a lot Blink :)
      Yes, the end was little bit emotional. But in reality everything can’t end with a smile. :)
      And i will visit your blog for sure. It’ll be my pleasure. :)

  2. Excellent job Arindam! What an interesting idea. I have been trying to come up with some weekly bit as well and likely after the new year I’ll select an idea such as you did with your Friday Drabbles.

    Merry Christmas to you!

    • Thanks a lot Joe.
      Yes joy, if you really want to, then this one is also a nice creative idea. I think you must give it a try. It’s really a challenging task to do.

      Merry Christmas to you and your family too. :) All my best wishes to you and your family.
      Happy Holidays to you!

  3. ” Drabble,” sounds like a great tool to create something that makes an impression without being lengthy. This one stuck in my brain,” Heart started beating faster; mind slowly asked me a question “Will she talk to me this time, after so many years?” She came and went passed me as if we never knew each other.
    At last my heart said to my mind , “Let’s end it here”.” This sounded so deep but at one point of my younger life I felt the same way when a relationship ended. You have a gift with words Bro, hope you continue to inspire the world with our stories.

    • Thanks a lot bro. :)
      Yes each one of us, at one point of our lives, went through similar phase. Some have the courage and honesty to confess it, and some do n’t have. Still i wanted to bring that feeling on paper, because i feel life is too short to wait for a person, who do not deserve that!

      Merry Christmas to you & your family bro. May you people get all happiness, joy & peace in life. As always all my best wishes are with you all. :)

  4. Wow — your experiment of 100 words was kicked off with a bang! Sensational post, Arindam. I felt your place in time, your roaring emotions, and the end really tied it together.

    What you’ve done here is poetry.

    This new part of your blog will be my favorite, I am sure, as you rise to the challenge of condensing your many emotions into so few words. And making them even more powerful because of it. Very well done.

    • Thanks a lot Melissa. :) Let’s hope i can do something good with this challenge this Friday, till now there is no idea what i will post this week for this challenge. :)
      I think you also must give it a try, you can do a wonderful job with this concept.
