Turbulence


Travelling abroad was Rashmi's dream which came true when she won a travel package to Malaysia in a contest. He pressurized her husband Aakash for the trip as they spend little time together due to his work commitments. She thought that a foreign vacation would help to strengthen their relationship which was otherwise in a brittle state. His communication with her was limited to casual salutations only. She felt that he had something to say and that trip would provide an opportunity for him to lighten his heart.

He halfheartedly boarded the flight with her while she was in full confidence to heal their relationship. When the plane was in air she initiated the conversation in romantic manner while he remained quiet. Suddenly plane started shaking, oxygen marks came out hanging in front of them, pilot announced to tie seat belts. Children started crying, every passenger was in a state of fear. Many believed that the plain was going to crash.

Believing that his end was near Aakash confessed to Rashmi about his second wife. "I knew her before our marriage but my family was against her and compelled me to marry you. I maintain a distance from you because I don't love you. Because we are dying now I think you should know this truth." Rashmi started crying. After a while airplane became steady and the pilot announced ," There is no need to panic. Everything is under control now. It was just air turbulence".


Today's alphabet is and it's UBC DAY 23.

There are times to keep one's mouth closed. This was one of them. I enjoyed this.

Over visiting from the A to Z.

Love that. Rule #1: never confess the deep dark secrets unless you know for sure you're crashing.

At least the turbulence made her realize the reality...
Deep story, Cifar.
