55 fiction.

A phone call. A text message. Anything would do. I just needed to know that he was safe. I kept looking at the phone, waiting for it to ring. I wished I could hear his sweet voice telling me that he slept off and thus, didn't call. I hoped that he had missed his flight. I longed for anything but this..


As I changed channels on the television, I prayed that he wasn't one among the dead in the flight bomb blast.



P.S: My Dad was on a flight to the States during the Twin towers bomb blast. No, he wasn't on one of those two flights, but he was there when it all took place. *shivers*



Stay safe,

  1. Good to know that your dad is safe:)!!!! It sometimes just happens that, though our heart says that all is well and everything is fine, but still unless and until we don't hear from the concerned person, it doesn't resonate with us.
    May god protect all..

  3. wow... I was feeling restless while reading this! I can totally empathize your writing :) Glad that your dad is safe... Sometimes it is during such moment we realise our mistakes, so I always say never live in any regrets say sorry if you have to, say love you if you have to... so that you are never incomplete. :)

      I'm so glad you can empathize with my writing. So true! Expressing what we feel is definitely the secret to living a regret free life. :)
