Companion.


I admit I lie but let me tell you now, I’ve decided not to anymore but when I’m down and low, can I pretend to be okay? Will you stop asking questions? Will you just sit with me, in the quiet?

The smile on my face might be fake but right now, it’s as real as it can get. Don’t try to make things better; don’t make it worse, can we just be? There’s no need to be strong, don’t be sorry; leave me alone.

I’d make you coffee and listen to you talk, spend time on the terrace tonight, counting stars. Did you know We are stronger than we think and weaker than we believe we are?

Ain’t it great? You’re happy with your delusions and I’m happy with mine.

            9. Ram ki Bandi. I’ve only been there once and it was pretty regular, I mean, the same dosa you have all over the city. I prefer places with less crowds so I don’t really go there. I can assure you can have better dosas in other places, it’s just that Ram ki bandi is popular and most others aren’t.

              Honestly, 95% of books have tragically horrible villains! I mean, villains are usually individuals who they’re right, or they have someone else to protect at any costs. Authors should make readers fall in love with the villains, not plan their death! Quite frustrating 😂
