Tragedy

"For the girl atop the hillside, salvation seemed impossible. Her family were in the city. She had no money, no possessions. Nothing except the clothes on her back and the horse she rode on. As the sun rose above the darkened city and the full extent of the damage became clear, the girl turned her horse away. Away from the life and death in the city of Pompeii."

(Title is taken from the Ed Sheeran song I See Fire, written for The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug in 2013.)

Hiraeth(N) a homesickness for a home you can't return to, or that never was.

A modern fairy tale set during an alternate WWII.

Once upon a time, there was a beautiful woman with the sun in her eyes, the moon in her skin, and music in her voice. Once upon a time there was a man whom this woman loved with all of her heart, but he was not truly hers, but her passenger's.     Her passenger's name was Sverila.    Once upon a time there was a shadow, the brother to Sverila, Death himself.     His name was Anryien.    Anryien watched the woman who had unintentionally freed him from his chains, and he grew to love this woman; his sister's host.        But nothing is ever certain when his sister is in play and a plot will soon unravel that will lead them all through time as a war among ancient gods threatens to overtake the world- a world where only one of them is truly native to.

A retelling of the love of Alexander and Hephaestion, set in modern day.

Henry Price is a student at Philip Grayson Academy, an all-boys private school. A Latin teacher's assistant, he mostly keeps to himself, bearing his existence from day to day in the school's dorms, rarely setting foot outside of campus. Until he meets Alexander.

Alexander Grayson carries the weight of the world on his shoulders. At school, he is friendly with everyone but is friendless, is renowned as the school's golden boy, and drives a classic car too fast. But at home, he is alone in dealing with his parents' tumultuous love affair, shielding his younger sister from their father's drunken rages, and the pressure of the of the greatness expected of him.

They are an unlikely pair, but they need each other. Together, they are the counterweight to each other's lives, and, some would say, one soul in two bodies.

"True Love is a myth, but True Friendship isn't."

A story set in India and London that revolves around the journey for love and friendship transcending borders, 1960 London Love, is an epic tragedy revolving around Meera Bhandarkar, who, six decades later, is asked to recount her saga of love, betrayal, and friendship that has made her the town's legendary figure. As the wounds are opened and secrets spilled, the listener and speaker find a connection and bond that they had overlooked.

What is this story? And who is this stranger that wants to know it?

Read this beautiful and poignant novella with immaculate description and cultural references that will pull at your heartstrings and make you smile as you feel the ups and downs of the relatable characters.

______________________________________________________________________________________________

Rishabh looked down upon his empty hand and then at the old woman in front of him. "So", he finally opened his mouth." What do you have for me in exchange for this photograph?"

Meera looked at the young man and smiled. She then leaned forward and rested her chin on her hand which stood pensively on her lap. Staring at the pair of unsure eyes, she said, " Honestly, I would give you nothing in exchange for this photograph. I had rather, you take it with yourself and burn or throw it somewhere. But I am curious. What do you want in exchange for this shard of memorabilia?"

Rishabh hesitated at first, before forming a slurry of words, "I want the story."

Meera leaned back in surprise but quickly regained her composure. "Pardon?"

He took a deep breath and tried to gather his jittery confidence. " I want you to tell me the legend that revolves around you. The romantic saga that makes you, an unmarried woman, a widow."

Meera turned away and stared at the hills beyond the window. Her composure crumbled as a single tear flowed down her cheeks. She quickly wiped it off and sniffled.

"The story you are asking for", she said without turning her eyes from the lush greenery." Is not what you would call a romantic saga. It has no happy ending. Just pain and heartbreak. But then, that is what life is. More thorned than flowered."

"So", Rishabh asked the frail and sad lady. " Would you tell me the story?"

Meera nodded and turned to look at him. "Yes. Yes, I would, Rishabh. I would tell you the very tragedy that defines my life. But not for this snapshot but because I believe it's time for me to let go of that painful memory, that,  which I call, my 1960 London Love."
