The journey - 2

Short Story - The journey 2
Sitting at that deserted bus stop, she had disturbing thoughts. What will she do in a world so wide and cruel with no money, no support and no friends? How will she even survive?

Happiness and Love

If you ever read Jane Austen, who by the way is the greatest novelist of romantic fiction, you will realize what ruined generation after generation of women all over the world. I first read Jane Austen when I was fourteen. You know what teenage girls are like. They are impressionable and gullible. I read a lot of other books before I read “Pride and Prejudice” but “Pride and Prejudice” touched me in the hidden corners of my heart no other book ever did, and don’t even get me started on “Tess of D’Urbervilles”.

The journey - 1

Raahi walked towards the bus stop, her heart pounding in her ears, making her gulp several times in fear. A narrow lonely road is no place for a woman to be in these parts, especially after dark. She finally walked out of her life with a man that loved his work more than he loved his mistress in town. She had no place in his heart, let alone his life. She decided to walk away from that house and that life of waking up every day to empty halls and servants that pitied her more than they respected her. When she finally realized she was descending a bottomless valley of soulless existence, she left.
