The stranger!

In response to Sonya’s 3 line tale week 123.

Feeling frustrated and stifled, Aman finally managed to escape the sanatorium.

With nowhere to go, he just walked where his feet decided to take him. He stopped at the puddle of water on the road, to see a stranger looking back at him.

The accident had robbed him of his memory, identity and life!

      Belonging but not belonging….. beautifully said Miriam. Not only for the person,but for his family too, it is devastating!

      When everything else fails, hope is the only ray of light to move ahead! I hope he finds his. Thanks Balroop 🙂

    Beautiful haunting writing, Radhika! You put us right there with Aman, and we can guess his swirling emotions as he sees a stranger staring back at him. Frightening…brilliant concept and I could see a much longer story developing from this!

    Wow amazing story from the picture, Radhika and two lines I too would say from the picture and He was so confused that he simply stared at the puddle not knowing who he was or where did he come from. Great post.

    It is a scary thought, one enough to bring chills down your spine, when you cannot recognize yourself, your identity or your past.
