Love sees no colour

Love sees no colour

They loved each other and despite the differences in the colour of their skin, they had promised to be with each other through thick and thin. But not everyone understood.

“Did you really think through before getting into this relationship? Did you even bother to check his background?” When her parents got to know of her relationship, they simply admonished her without trying to understand her side of the story.

“When I was growing up, you taught me to respect every human. But now, just because of our differences in skin colour, you have a problem with his background? Honestly, I am ashamed hearing this.”

She knew that convincing her parents was a lost cause and both of them had to elope to be together.

100 word fiction: Lovestruck

I want to forget those days but I can’t seem to get over her. It seems that she is still here with me walking hand in hand by the beach.

We happened to meet by chance in a restaurant where she had come for a business meeting. When we got talking, we realized that we had so much in common and a friendship quickly bloomed. Soon enough, we were besotted with each other so much so that I had surrendered myself to her charms.

But when she suddenly passed away, I was only left with our photographs and my loneliness.
