Point of view

Refreshing weather with the sounds of children’s laughter and fun. Children’s voices are echoing all over the park. So many kids are playing around. Adam is walking hand in hand with his wife, Jennifer. He’s watching children playing baseball. When suddenly the ball hits a bench where an old lady is knitting a small red sweater.

Adam: The same colour. This red! How could I do that! How could I be so careless! Had I listened to Jenny that day, he would have been here with us. I wish she was at home. My little superhero would have been alive. I wish I could go back in time to make things right. I can never forgive myself, but I wish she does.
He looks at her. Tears streaming down his face. I would never let anyone go to that terrace again.

Jennifer: He was wearing the same sweater. I wish I had taken a day off that day rather than leaving all the responsibilities on Adam. I have to hide this pain. I can’t see Adam like this. He has changed completely. I miss my son, but I miss Adam more.
I think it’s time we should plan another baby. I hope he would be ready for this. She looks at him. I can’t see him in pain. “Adam, I’ve lost a baby. I don’t wanna lose you now.” Tears streaming down his face.

Old Lady: Good heavens! Why do these children play here!! I love to sit here but now this park has turned into a chaos.
Why is this gloomy couple looking at me like this! Tears streaming down his face.
O’ Lord! Is he sobbing?! I hope they’re not getting a divorce.
No.. he’s looking here and crying. I think I remind him of his mother. Actually he reminds me of my wicked son.
Anyway.. I should probably make another sweater like this in some other colour…

Serially lost- Chapter I

She was working very hard for her final exams. She knew she was going to make her father proud. Her father had full confidence in her. She was his pride. This was the time for her to show what she was capable of. She had her goals set. Her life was taking a positive turn but she had no clue how a diversion would take her to a different path.
A new life was about to start. She was following the path to her goals until she met him.
He came in her life as an adventure that she always wanted to experience. He came in her life as cocaine, she knew she shouldn’t taste it but she could not resist.
That spring was golden. He came in her life very fast and she fell for him. He made her life spark. He did things that she could not even imagine anybody doing for her. He was her hero. He was her first touch, her first kiss, her first glass of wine, her first slow romantic dance, her first hand in hand walk in a chilly morning, he was her first love. He gave himself to her completely and in return he just wanted her time that she obviously didn’t hesitate to give at all. She gave him every second of her three crucial months. She forgot about her goals. Her aim was fading day by day. Her perseverance for her goals was nowhere to be seen. He was her only priority. She was madly in love with him and for her everything else ceased to exist.
Tomorrow was her exam, she was sweating with fear, and flicking through the pages of her books. She had forgotten almost everything and was trying hard to cover all the topics in one night. She might have done that but the phone rang and the apprehension was vanished. He was coming to pick her up after exam, that’s all she was concerned about.
She had gone entirely bonkers. She was not in her senses. She was under his spell until she saw her father’s wet eyes for the first time. The result was announced. She could not believe she had done this. She was realising everything, she was very well aware that it was only her fault.
Her father didn’t say a thing but he had lost all the confidence he had in her. She cursed herself but she didn’t know what else to do. All the doors were closed now. Her path was lost and all of the above her confidence was lost.
