Book Review- Faith and the Beloved

This is the second book from Kochery C Shibu that I am reviewing, and I was excited to read another story from him. Have to say he did not disappoint. Love, lust, money, pain, you name it and the author has mixed each element so beautifully in this story. Blurb- Naithy Cherokil is a rich and successful businesswoman from Mumbai who marries the young and … Continue reading Book Review- Faith and the Beloved

The secret buried under the tree

When I saw the woman in the middle of the road swat thin air, I recognized it; schizophrenia. I approached her, she turned, and her face distorting horribly, her hands waved me away. “No, no! Go, go now!” she demanded, heading off down the road. I followed at some distance, trying carefully not to spook her. “I can still see you,” she sung to me … Continue reading The secret buried under the tree

Unsure of uncertainty

“Let’s take the night into the morning!” read Deep loudly from Rumi’s cell phone. “What’s that supposed to mean? What’s going on here?” Deep had asked. Rumi had feigned ignorance while grabbing the phone from him citing that she was surprised herself as to how that ‘person’ had got her number. She was well aware of the multitude of lies that she had been privy … Continue reading Unsure of uncertainty

Love you to your bones, my love

‘Park here,’ Tia said, ‘We’re early and I’d like to sit in the sunshine for a while.’ Daksh parked the car in one of the empty bays and went to purchase a ticket. When he got back to the car Tia was standing by the door grinning broadly. ‘See!’ she said. ‘You’re holding on to the door,’ Daksh said, ‘you’re cheating.’ ‘Huh.’ Daksh walked round … Continue reading Love you to your bones, my love

I’m not going anywhere, baby.

I strained a smile and sipped from my cup. “It’s going to be okay, Rohan,” Tia said, leaning over the table to touch my hand. The lights flickered; I pulled my hand away, anxiety filling my stomach. She was confused. “I’m sure she’ll be found, you just need faith.” “Sure,” I responded, taking another sip. She stared into my eyes, interrogating me silently, “You need … Continue reading I’m not going anywhere, baby.

Don’t underestimate the little girl

It was quiet. My boss ordered me to check out this abandoned mental hospital. What he didn’t tell me was that the hospital was out in the middle of nowhere. As I was paying attention to the road, driving slow, and something jarred me from my thoughts. A white figure seemingly splotched with blood, or something that looked a lot like blood – darted across … Continue reading Don’t underestimate the little girl

Bless me, Father for I Have Sinned

The door to the confessional opened, the light burned my eyes and I squinted. I heard the person sit, and I waited. “What have you come to confess, my child,” I said, listening to the heavy breathing in the booth next to me. “It’s okay, you are among God now.” “Forgive me father, for I have sinned,” the man’s voice announced. “That’s okay, I’m here … Continue reading Bless me, Father for I Have Sinned

When The Light Went Dark

While I was stranded in complete darkness, arms spread in front of me, hoping to find a way out, I touched something strange, felt like someone’s face. I don’t want to sound mean, but the dead are pretty clueless. I’ve always seen them. When I was younger everyone thought I was just talking to imaginary friends. After a couple years, when I overheard my parents … Continue reading When The Light Went Dark
