Day after day, she had looked out at the gloomy night sky. That night, she knew she had to take the plunge. Unconcerned about the outcome, she poured out her heart to him, the way one would when they knelt before the Lord. Suddenly, she saw sunlight streaming through the semi-transparent curtains. It had dawned.


Yay! My first 55er! πŸ™‚

For the week’s prompt at 3WW: gloom, kneel, transparent


Song on my mind: Kannil Dhaagam

Thanks for the song, Aps! πŸ™‚

Fell in love with this song the instant I heard it on Aparna Shriram’s blog yesterday, and it has been on my mind ever since. I have listened to it n number of times since yesterday, and can’t seem to get enough of it. And, in a strange sort of way, it suits the story as well. What say you?
