Welcome #Fridayfictioneer


In her well lit living room with big glass windows, Nirmala could not understand what made Bhola so afraid in such a beautiful setting. With little time at hand to engage in the flight of fantasy, Nirmala had work to do. Find a replacement for Bhola, find a school for her son and generally put the place in order.

The whistling kettle reminded Nirmala that she needed a cup of tea. “Who plugged the kettle?” wondered Nirmala, “who else, but Nikhil?

As she looked for Nikhil who was nowhere to be found, a whiff of cold air caressed Niramala’s face.

      1. There’s definitely something weird going on… whether or not there’s a ghost is still up for debate. Even if there is a ghost, there are still unanswered questions. Is it simply mischievous but harmless? Does it intend to help or to harm the house’s inhabitants? An intriguing story, and a good continuation of the previous one.

  1. Slowly, slowly, you ratchet up the tension…the kettle whistling without human agency is a nice touch.
    I hope you don’t mind if I make a suggestion? You might like to consider writing the whole story. If you wanted, you could then post it on your blog and include a link from your FF post so the rest of us could read it. I think this would help you achieve a better shape for the overall story arc.
