Will the pain go away?

She sat looking at the older woman, in the couch which had seen better years. There was a coffee stain at one edge which appeared fainter but bigger due to the attempts of cleaning, there was a few stitches cleverly crafted in the cushions to make it look like designs rather than torn out parts. She remembered the day it was brought, it was on her 9th birthday. It looked so new and shiny. It could accommodate the constant praises of all people and the weight which it bore gracefully. She could now this second, relate the couch to the older woman, who had been as graceful years back. Now there were lines on her near perfect face. There were scars which could never be healed in her mind. Yet, she was always ready to give and share. Her love astonished her.

Now as she sat there thinking, how is she going to reveal herself of the pain. She knew talking to her would help. But if there was something eating her mind, she knew her MOM would be glad to hear and sort it for her. But this was terrible. Every living second she was being eaten by millions of cells. It was not the Physical pain of the disease but the mental agony of the news she received which had shattered her. The reports declared adinoma carcinoma. And her life had changed that day. Now she wanted to reach out to the older woman and hug her. Will the pain go away?

Hey guys, this is my first attempt at Fiction. Please let me know how I can improvise?


  1. Wow I mean I’m no expert here but WOW
    I hope there is a part two to it

  2. Thanks for the comment :)...This is my first attempt so will try to get a part 2 rolling in :)

  3. Nice analogy! But I guess it can't end here? Too short for agripping story right?? :D

    btw, one minor mistake,

    "How is she going to reveal herself of the pain" should be "relieve herself" right??

  4. Ash D!

    _ Thanks for the comment. It is not the end, but kind of leaves you wondering what happens. I will improvise on that and the Spelling mistake *sheepish grin*

    I appreciate your honest opinion very much !

  5. Beautiful juxstaposition. The couch and the each of the ladies in the story. Terribly sad, and it was achieved with a beautiful subtlety. I look forward to more 'fiction'!


  6. Hey El Furibundo - Thanks for the comments. It really Inspires me to write more :)

  7. Hi there... WOWWW !!!! Beautifully done. The idea is Really good !! And yes, you have a Lot of potential. Though you have made a few grammatical errors and also used a few words wrongly. Some of the corrections would be " brought " should be bought. " accommodate " should be replaced by another word saying that it was deserving of it. reveal should be relieve and " in the couch " should be " on the couch. "

    Please don't mind. You asked so I'm letting you know. I hope you'll return the favor by commenting truthfully on my blogs too . :)
