The Lost Star

The Lost Star

The Lost Star In the darkest part of the night, we met. We giggled and laughed and danced to the moon's melody under the twinkling starlight. We cherished our happy moments made at night, every morning. Then came a day when she joined those stars, making them shine brighter! But what about me? I had now lost my guiding light. ©The Honest Fabler ©Image Source- Google Images...

The Secret Sister Of Awan Alee – Part II

The Secret Sister Of Awan Alee – Part II

Complete parts: Author’s Note (Password: sister) I II III IV V VI VII VIII IX 29 August, 2016 Dear sister, Hello didi! I missed you a lot, did you miss me too? I thought of a name for you. I'll name you Scarlett. The name Scarlett since recently I read the cult classic- Gone with the Wind. The name seems bold to me, exactly how I feel about you. By the way, did you know this book GWTW showcases a war, slavery and other such human grievances? It reminded me about the Syrian Civil War. I could completely relate with the feelings of the characters in the book, having no idea of when something will go wrong or if tomorrow would be safe to enjoy playing football with Ayman and the other buddies back home. But the case here is so much opposite, indeed mum dad were right. I like studying here and staying carefree from any other tensions. Last night, the three of us managed to sneak out after curfew hours. It was raining,...

Eternal Yearning

Eternal Yearning

Facing the stars I could see the moonlight illuminate Adara's face. Her deep blue eyes reflected the light just as bright. As moments passed, I failed to stop admiring her perfectly carved vessel for the beautiful soul within it. What did Adara do all that time? She was unaware of my presence; of me admiring her; of me falling for her more and more everyday. She was lost, her mind wandering with the stars beyond the milky way. The unfazed expression on her face seeded in me a majestic tree of curiosity. "A penny for your thoughts?" I shrugged, hoping she doesn't mind me breaking her train of thoughts. As my words registered in her mind she stared at me with bewilderment. "Olivia, sorry I slipped out of the surroundings." "It's okay, you can carry on." I gave a light pat on her thigh and looked away to avoid an awkward situation. She shifted to the edge of her chair and partially leaned on me. "I...

Nexa’s Sleep

Nexa’s Sleep

The air directly hit his face, dragging with it the untrimmed strands of hair and his bushy beard. His lips were dry, a few fresh cuts let out sour blood on the tip of his tongue. 'What a day.' He let out a deep sigh, his words lost in the nothingness of the night. Taking a look inside the train's car, he noticed he was alone except for a homeless man and a child sleeping on the floor. 'At least he has someone to care for.' He pitied himself, looking at the two men with eyes full of grief. His mind travelled back to the night when the earthquake annihilated his home, along with his entire family. How he survived in the mess, is still a miracle. That was 3 years ago, he has reached far from that now. Or so he likes to think so. His family didn't haunt him anymore, they're nothing more than a bad dream. A bad dream that he's...

Random Shower thoughts

Random Shower thoughts

'What took you so long in the shower, Flynn?' Sydney asked her newlywed husband before their first night together. 'Because I'm lucky.' Flynn said jumping on the bed with only a towel wrapped around his waist, wet strands of hair dripping on his forehead. 'Have you decided to turn weird the very first night after our marriage?' Sydney tilted her head, concerned about Flynn's well being. 'Don't you get it, Sydney? I'm so lucky to be alive. Alive, in the same timeline that you exist. Our souls have been sleeping for all eternity and they probably would sleep again after our deaths. Comparing the time of our lives with this eternity is pointless, but this little time that we get to be awake, to breathe, to love, it's-- it's all so aesthetic to imagine. I know we're just starting our marriage but I want it to be the best time of our lives. And by best I don't mean that everything would be...

My first steps.

My first steps.

Hola amazing readers and fellow bloggers! This is to tell you all something I've been planning to do since the time I got my very first 30 followers. I remember Deepika has been there since Honest Fabler had only 2 followers. Kudos to the humble soul and every person who has considered Honest Fabler good enough to be followed. Now, back to the topic. Back then it was something I only dreamt of and said to myself "Bleh." Well, turns out I was wrong. And thus Today, it gives me immense pleasure and butterflies loaded with excitement to announce that- thehonestfabler.wordpress.com will never be the same from this Saturday i.e. 15 April, 2017. WordPress has been the sweetest and the best community I've ever been a part of. Every single person here has the heart of gold & I consider myself lucky to meet such people as my peers. It's all because of you guys that this is even happening. If it weren't for your criticism and...

The Secret Sister of Awan Alee

Before you start your journey with Awan, I would like if all of you read my note about it. Author's Note. The password is "sister" (Ignore the quotation marks) 17th August 2016 Dear sister, Hello shaqiqa! How've you been? It's been 18 years since we talked, that's sad I know but I'll surely talk to you more often from now on. :) To start with our introductions, I'll go first: I now live in India, isn't that awesome? I came here just a few days ago. As you know our country has an active civil war which is just getting worse and thus our parents decided that I should stay away from all of it. Amongst all the places that we could afford, India was better than the rest. No complaints though, I'm happy over here. Last 9 days have been great! (Until today, of course) My hostel room over here is wonderful, I share it with 2 guys- Naveen and Azure. Naveen (aka the buffoon)...
