Mindlovemisery’s Menagerie – Tale Weaver #278DIRTY WINDOWS

Cyranny’s Cove – Word of the Day ChallengeUntold

Everyday after lunch, the lady of the house had this strange habit of dispersing from rest of the house. She went to her room but did not take a nap. With no book to read, no pen to write and no wool to knit,she would sit on her chair and looked outside the dirty window of her room.She would be in her best dress, wearing red paint and the most beautiful smile on her lips.

When she suffered from a kind of OCD, why did she leave this one window to be the dirtiest ? It escaped the regular soaping, brushing and constant rubbing. I often wondered. Layers and layers of dirt on the glass, dust and dirt and the panes were too greasy to touch. What was her bond with it ? I held her eccentric though I had the most urge to see what she was enjoying there.

Trying to decipher the meaning of this strange connection, I always failed. She had a certain unctuous trait while she sat there. Fearing what yeet might yield from her or a knock out from a fight that might erupt, I refrained from asking her.

But one day, as if hit by a wave of current, I mustered up my whole courage to confront her and a totally unexpected smile welcomed me. Her tired eyes sparkled when she invited me to have a look. I stared blankly and could make out anything but the dirty greasy glass and pane staring back. I did not intend to break her heart and with a simple thank you, I stepped back. Without any questions asked, she resumed. I walked out of the room to turn back to see her mind happily floating away. Fond memories ?? Lost love? Hopes of somebody’s return? Oh !!! This she kept untold !!!

Unaware we are, of what lies ahead. The secret of the dirty windows always remained a mystery, but her happiness with the slightest proximity to it was never hidden. And when she decided to leave this world, I saw this one window being cleaned first.

    1. First am not working now. I was till I got pregnant. I wanted to give my whole time to my kid, so I stopped working. But planning to resume soon as he has started schooling.

      Next, am not with my husband now πŸ˜› Am in India now and he in UAE. Lock down separated us 😦 Missing him terribly 😦

      Third.. when you stay at your own house after marriage, trust me.. you will not have to do any chores πŸ˜›

      But yes.. it is also true that I cannot write during day time.. E learning, practice sheets, and a lot of stuff restricts my day time blogging. So once your kid is asleep, start writing. Till your eyes and head burst of sleep deprivation !!! πŸ˜›

  1. Such an intriguing story. I couldnt stop until I finished. Good one Nima.
    I read in the comments that your hubs is away in UAE. I hope you get to meet him soon. My friends are stuck here from past 3 months away from their families. My heart bleeds for you all. I am praying for all of you. Take care.
