Qualms

Her worst dreams had come true. He indeed had betrayed her faith. He always said he loved her, but did he really love her? That one message on his cell phone proved that she had been right. “Love, see you at 8 tonight”, beeped a message on his iPhone. As he entered the room to check his phone, he heard her slam the front door and he followed her as she walked towards the beach. He shouted after her asking her to listen to him, but she’d had enough. She wanted to leave him but it was impossible to do so while she was alive. Before he could tell her that the message was from his step sister, who had invited them for dinner, she was gone. Lost in the deep blue ocean, forever.

Inspired from one of my favourite songs by Enrique Iglesias:

From the coast of Ipanema
to the Island of Capri
all the way to Kuala Lumpur
I will follow you wherever you may be

From the moment, I first saw you
Knew my heart could not be free
Had to hold you in my arms
There can never be another for me

  3. If she didnt trust her husband enough to know if he wud have an affair or not… and he didnt trust her enough to tell her about his step-sister… then they BOTH deserved that stupid ending! Good riddance! Hmph! 😐

  4. Hi Avada;

    Short but the impact is great!

    I like this tale of yours. But I hate how foolish women turn to be and without listening to explanations. However, was he true? What prompted her to end their relationship and even her life?

    He must have been a consistent chauvinist!

    Very good tale, very apt with the picture prompt!

    Please find time to drop by my place to read mine. Thanks in advance!

    • Thanks for reading Amity and welcome to my blog! πŸ™‚ Yeah sometimes people take wrong steps due to anger. What one should do is talk to their partner once their anger subsides and probably get their doubts clarified πŸ™‚

  5. Sad one…but well, instead of trying to catch up with her BEFORE explaining, he could just have screamed out tht th msg was from his step sister!

  8. Much Better!! Much Much Better!!!

    I am talking of the template… I love Georgia btw.. and this one really soothing..

    And as for your post, irony is that no one can explain why she took that step. She could have filed for a divorce, and got a grand alimony and lived her life again πŸ˜›

    And the villain here is a Step sister!! Well I guess you could have come up with a bit realistic, here.. Like mom.. but still hey, did’nt she notice the name on the message?

  9. Moral of the story: Listen to your heart but don’t keep assuming, stop and listen to your hubby/wife as well.
    Don’t doubt them all the time it is injurious for your life and the health of your relationship πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€

    A very different kind of a story Avada πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

    3. According to Karudapurana, she goes to hell for being ignorant and she gets impaled there as a punishment.
    4. The passage is about saperation is ‘inspired’ from Enrique’s lines, which itself is about being togather.
    5. The picture posted here doesn’t look like a suicide mission, but she is proud of being strange.

      4. Nope not inspired by the lines… I should have specifically put that.. my bad.. it was inspired by the video of the song. In the video, the girl drowns herself in the ocean, even when the hero is following her, asking her to come back πŸ˜€

      • Oh wow!. Time to go off-topic.
        I think you are one of the super rich girl who became victim to the fake websites. I ll guess how you tried it. First, u googled with a word ‘iphone firmware 3.1.3 or 4.0. Then you might have gone into some website in the first page of results. Then, you got some 6 or 7 steps. Then your device is dead. Right? You can sell it to “Ashwini Mobiles” in Mars. May be next time you try with HTC ones.
        What proof you need? Saturday has gone. May be I can bang my head in wall to mourn for ur dead iPhone.

      • You ‘followed’ famous hackers! you ll become more famous than them, if you can do that. It’s not that easy frnd.
        The solution is simple. You just need to get the copy the OS files from iPhone GSM and get it installed in ur iPhone AT&T or anything. But u need an old apple notebook to do this, with fresh MacOS dated before the iPhone release, without an online update. Quite rare and tricky, but we made it worked for my brother.
