A Mother’s Wisdom

A Mother’s Wisdom

An hour past midnight. The cold winter winds blew in through the open window & I tightened my grip on the blanket. My room's door was shut, the phone placed on my ear turned static. I couldn't believe the words I just listened to. "It's over. I can't be with you." The sentence screamed in my mind and I realized it isn't a dream. A sudden gasp left my mouth followed by loud sobbing. I knew everyone's asleep so I muffled my mouth in the blanket. 10 minutes. 15... 20... 30... An hour... Two? Or more? I don't remember how & when I fell asleep.  A heavenly morning. All I remember is the next day my room's door was ajar, the sunlight warming my cold face and illuminating the room with a shade of white. Everything else stood as still as it was last night, only more brighter than ever. I wondered if I were dreaming it. "Good morning, Alfred." Ah, no. Not a dream. I heived a sigh...

The Secret Sister of Awan Alee – Part IV

Complete parts: Author’s Note (Password: sister) I II III IV V VI VII VIII IX 25 October 2016 Dear Scarlett, Guess where I’m taking you to? Oh, come on! You suck at guessing. Right now we’re in a plane to Cairo, Egypt since we have a long vacation for the Diwali festival. Hoorah! That’s the good news, the better news is that mom has started running her own clinic and dad’s business is back up, too, and due to that now I’m sitting in the business class. Double-Hoorah! It is 9:06 p.m. and the flight takes roughly 6 hours but it must be 5:30 p.m. in Cairo at the moment which means that I will meet mom dad an hour or two before my birthday! The girl sitting beside me is cute, don’t you think so? I’ll talk to her soon but for that I’ll have to say "Buh Bye" to you di. Hope our journey goes great! And just in case you get bored I’ve brought The Great Gatsby along. ;) See ya soon. 14...

Spellbound

Spellbound

Spellbound(?) Today I saw a girl, Something about her made my heart twirl. Her pearly eyes never met mine, Yet I knew our hands would fit in just fine. Her chubby cheeks, rosy lips, dimple chin, squishy nose. Why can't I form an original prose? Her sublime beauty had surely perplexed my mind, I was lost in a trance & words are something I still can't find. © The Honest Fabler © Image source- Google Images...

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...

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...

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)...

Make sure you check out her blog and her Instagram for marvellous sketches. Take flight This is for all the artists out there..the ones who had so many things in their head to recreate on a paper with something as simple as a pencil and colours of any kind..who were waiting to get better and better so that they could show the world exactly what they wanted. The waiting is over. Pick up that medium and just start creating without holding back. You were born to do this. The art is not just in your skills it's in YOU. No one can compare to that. Let the lines be wobbly and let those colours out of those crooked borders. Just keep creating no matter what. No block or nothing can...
