About Noyonika, Child of His Eyes

21 Oct

“When she first noticed Abhiveer’s gaze on her, she had been shooing pigeons off her potted hydrangeas. When months later, he showed no signs of dropping it, she acquiesced, and hesitantly asked Rina di to arrange a formal meeting. His intense grey corneas were her last memory as her own eyes blurred and sank into silence.”

As the voice trailed off, Noyonika removed her sunglasses, wiped tears that she hadn’t noticed emerge, and thanked her reading assistant for repeating her mother’s biography.

    Gosh OJ, your fragments are swell
    My own eyes, with tears, did well
    To be forever blind
    Would be hellava bind
    But Noyonika seems happy, in a lightless world to dwell.

    Only you could’ve have come with something so brilliant and intriguing.
    Yours grudgingly
    Manju.

    Aunty G: It’s not, not, not a fragment! *stamps foot*. It’s life in SHORTS! 😑

    Manju: You grudge me my cluttered inner life? πŸ˜•

    These cluttered SHORTS are so cool.

    CrazyDiamond: The October heat necessitated a wardrobe change.

    Whoa, OK, *shorts* they are
    Please don’t feather-me-tar

    Not a word shall i utter
    After all, you’re my favourite blog star!

    How, OJ, how?
    ( Come up with almost constant brilliance, that is)

    The comment about ‘Constance’ had me cracking up.

    When my mom has got nothing to do but worry about me and demands I repeat after her the prayers to Christ almighty, I ask her to head to any convent in Portugal. Yeah, she’s named Constance πŸ™‚

    Purely_Narcotic: πŸ˜€ You didn’t see me skulking outside your home, did you?

Here's a bar of chocolate. Now talk to me. :)
