Dark Obsession

Taylor was the most sought after girl in Minnesota. She was beautiful, rich and had none other than Jack Nichol, the king of mafia as her father. She was aloof and intimidating and confined her friendship to only one person, her best friend Jean Olsen. They have been friends since she could remember, and have been inseparable. They went out for movies, lunches, sleepovers, parties and lot of other things together. But one night something happened that changed everything, one night of intense passion left them confused and disoriented.

All these years they thought they were friends and nothing more, but the attraction was growing deeper and one night was enough for them to understand that they were in love. The news came as a shock to everyone in their university, two beautiful girls being lovers is not something many could digest. They decided to hide the news from their family, so they continued like before. The sleepovers increased, so did their dinner parties, luncheons and trip to the movies.

They spoke for hours, but Taylor had reached heights of obsession, she couldn’t stand a minute away from her lover, and this intensity started to scare Jean. Somewhere deep within her, confused sexuality was too much her for to handle and she started to pull back. She avoided Taylor, didn’t answer her calls, ignored all messages and completely erased her off. Taylor was shocked and hurt, Jean’s sudden severing of ties blew her off track. What troubled her most was there was no explanation or reason, she didn’t even know what did she do wrong to deserve this.

Finally after nights of living on chips and coping with depression alone she decides to go and confront Jean, something that she should have done much before. She started walking towards Jean’s house, when she abruptly stopped shock still. What she saw filled her with fury she never witnessed before. Jean was walking hand in hand with a man, so in love and happy.

Taylor couldn’t stand it anymore, she had reached the epitome of madness and had to get away from there before she lost control and did something terrible.As she entered her room, she was thinking over what just happened. How could Jean just forget what they had and move on, how could she just ignore her actual sexuality and change herself to suit others. Taylor could stand everything except for betrayal. She fished out her father’s gun from his safe and started to walk towards Jean’s house.

She was about to pay for her heartless behavior. When Jean opened the door, Taylor barged in. she didn’t say anything, but just kept looking at Jean for several minutes. Then she took out her gun aiming at her head and shot herself.

"Get cash" said my Beautician.

From where, the sky? I retorted angrily. 

Cash has become a huge problem right now. Modi's move is great but it has affected the common man's life very badly. Can you believe it, tomorrow I have an appointment with my beautician and for a meagre amount I have to shell out a cheque since I do not have any cash on me right now. 

I want to go to Pune to visit my Grand Mom and sadly I have no money to pay for the taxi. I doubt that particular fellow whom we contact takes any card payment. So basically we all are stuck. 

Moving on to other issues that I go through...

K has downloaded an app called "In shorts" or something like that in my phone. I am suppose to compulsorily read and study it. Why? K feels I have no idea what is happening in the world and I should know the basics. 

To be honest, he is right. I really don't have that much knowledge about the current happenings plus I truly do not care about "news", what is hap…

Because Mommy hates my eyebrows......

I hate this weather. It's all wet and weird. I am so surprised at myself for nearly finishing my commissions for September. Alongside I even managed to watch two movies. I had decided to watch them only on the completion of my work as a "treat", but well I just cannot say no to a movie night with K. Actually I cannot say no to anyone when it comes to watching a movie. So I ended up watching Freaky Ali which sucked. And Pink which did not suck at all. What a movie!

I called the "Mother" to discuss Pink and the seriousness it showcased about the way women are judged in the Indian society. After ranting for a couple of minutes about how we are perceived and shackled with responsibilities and judgements, she replies -
 "Have you done your eyebrows?"

Now my eyebrows are currently a crisis for my Mother. The fact that her daughter has disregarded the importance of physical maintenance is shocking for her. Since I have been piled this month with maddening w…

Happy New Year Peeps! *sneezes hard*

I just returned from a fabulous seven day holiday and now I am feeling the, to quote my friend R - "Holiday withdrawal symptoms". 
So for me the symptoms are mild melancholy and a viral infection. 
The year 2016 has just gone by too fast. Like literally too fast. It was a year of love, family, travel, art along with loss, hurt and pain. It was a bittersweet year for me. During Gudi Padwa which is a Maharashtrian New Year, there is a famous tradition that we follow. We never did that, well since we have never been a traditional family. Father and Mother have been free birds always and their need for flying free has rubbed on to us. The tradition was to eat a mixture of neem leaves and jaggery. Of course I am sure it must have tasted disgusting but it had a symbolic reference to it. It meant that life would always be a mixture of bitterness and sweetness. We have to hope for the sweet but also accept and appreciate the bitter. We have to accep…
