Too late to react


In a split second, she was soaked; or so it seemed. The warmth settled slowly, making a deeper and deeper imprint. She had tried with all her might but could not stop the inevitable. She could help neither..
...from falling in love..or
..the tea from staining her attire. Both had left a deep impact!




Fourth Tuesday prompt from Preeti Shenoy



A relationship takes its time to thicken, fills the pores of your heart and leaves an imprint that takes a long long while to vanish even when the attempt to wash out the memories is in earnest. Much like a tea-stain.

So, can a relationship be compared to a tea-stain? I guess so.

This is my first feeble attempt at a 55er. Happy Valentine's day!

    1. :-) Wikipedia defines a "55 fiction as a form of micro-fiction that refers to the works of fiction that are either limited to a maximum of fifty-five words or have a requirement of exactly 55 words (no more and no less)"
      so, I hope I conveyed the story sufficiently in 55 words..:-)

  8. A relationship is like a tea stain,
    the stain may fade with time,
    but will leave behind its marks,
    a relationship may die with time,
    but will leave behind its sparks...

  10. When you write Uma, I don't feel like reaching the end of post. In that light, 55-er was a disappointment. Nevertheless, had the punch it is supposed to have.
