Died With Covid

The plant dried up in Summer

A soul left, everyone suffers

I can visualize

Emotions they must have realized

They might have some last words to say

A Police Story

A true story of ACP Manjitha Vanzara by Shanu Shah

In India, it’s a culture to condemn the police. Though, when we are faced with an emergency we dial “100” with all confidence assuming that the police will come and save us.  But when relaxed, we speak all things shit about the Police force and their practices. It is believed that Police are more dangerous than criminals. Good governance and time have definitely improved the police practices resulting in a healthier perception of policing. There are still many areas where we have “Gundaraj”. People with power can shoot anyone on road, between hundreds of eyes, and still relax at home without even any court trial. Not even FIR is filed against such gangsters.

The Weird Man

The Weird Man a short fantasy story by Shanu Shah

Viato shuddered as he heard loud banging on his front door. As he neared the door he could hear people screaming too.

He latched the chain and opened the door very slowly.

“Open the door fast” Keritesi screamed. He did, she rushed in and closed it quickly panting.

“What is happening? Do you want something to drink” Viato brought a cup and she swallowed in a single swig.

“Tell me what happened?” Viato asked he shivered as he could hear more screams coming from outside.

Keritesi said, “When I came out of the office structure I heard something.”

You realise you’ve been single,

For a time so very long,

When you start writing poems,

On girlfriends who are long gone.

So as I sit at the bar this evening,

The Burden – A Story by Arsh Sharma

“Don’t jump,” Ritesh opened his eyes to see a teenage girl wearing a brown leather jacket by his side.

“It’s a 20 story building, you may or may not die,” she looked down and then glanced at him. Ritesh was sitting on the parapet wall of the terrace of a 20 story building. He had given up on his life and today he finally mustered up all his courage to climb up the stairs from his office which was on the 14th floor of the same building. The presence of a child in this high-rise building made him forget his purpose of coming there.

Dark Heavens – Chapter 4

Never Ending

Bones creaked under his feet as he traipses deeper into the cave in the moonless night. The muffle wails have stopped, he mostly cherishes screams though. Vlad is precarious, he can smell intrusion and something more sinister along with blood.

‘Dead’s Blood’ he whispers.

Dark Heavens – Chapter 3

Brutal War

The army gathers outside the mansion into the moonless night on Neil Island. Every vampire is first offered with the obsidian pendant. This will protect them from silver coming their way. Once one thousand vampires adore the obsidian pendant, they drink the blood, a colloid made from human blood and Vampires’ blood that died happily and willingly. The infamous stories of the dark magic generating from the vampire that has died happily were very prevalent among the society and it turns out to be more than powerful when Vlad experiments it on himself. A single swig and Vlad could feel stronger. He asks the guard to shoot him with silver, it deviates. He asks Santiago to stab the Silversword, it enters and exits him smoothly, healing him faster than his own blood. He hits the pillar next to him, it turns to ashes. A look out of the window, into the darkness, on the ground that is thirty feet down, he sees ants stuttering to their home.

Ready To Fight

“Jasmine” Vlad mutters. “Did you see Jasmine’s body?”

“Well no, I thought you…”

“Who told you Jasmine’s Dead?” Vlad cuts in

A Story of Treachery and Obsession

“Vlad!” Santiago quakes “Leave her. She is empty.”

Vlad looks back, blood dripping from his mouth, rage in his eyes. He stares at Santiago for a minute as if trying to recognize him. His face is dead, his eyes red. He glares again at the exsiccate body of the girl.

“Let’s go! Hurry.” Santiago gulps. He charges towards the exit.

Yet few mortal devils chose their path of death without pondering much on the repercussions of challenging the immortal Vampires. Yes, Vlad is immortal. Silver could not kill him. He had achieved that through several years of research. So is his closely-knit group. The five humans that betrayed him have to die. Brutally. And what better way to suck their blood, alive till they die themselves!
