The way to a man's heart

Mariam sat opposite the blazing tandoor roasting kebabs until golden brown. The mid-day sun scorched her fair skin to a similar shade.

She braved it all. To win back Anwar.

Anwar, who she knew to be a philanderer.

  1. Anwar doesn't deserve those kabobs! "She braved it all" worked well for me.

  3. She should enjoy those kebabs. Anwar doesn't deserve those. This line- "The mid-day sun scorched her fair skin to a similar shade." awesome.

  4. Sad but true, what all women do to win back or keep their men.The thankless hours in the kitchen for a meal that lasts 10 minutes :(

  6. Oooo, her hair was as scorched as her temper. Anwar's gonna get the what-for.

  7. I love the image of the girl and the tandoor. Knowing that it was likely all in vain added a layer of figurative heat to the literal fire.

  9. I say eat those kebabs and don’t wait around for Anwar. But if Mariam knows about his philandering then my words don’t carry any weight. But you my dear, have done a wonderful narration in a few words! Good to read you again, Uma. I was wondering what happened to you, so thought of stopping by here. Good that I came over. ��
