Guest Post - Two of a Kind by Pranju Chakrapani- Part 1

Chapter 1

A stroll I was taking. A thought I was thinking. Suddenly an eye got blinking. And it got me thinking. The boy that passed by me. My mind made a ringing. I have seen him before. A fear rushed from my core. A dress similar to mine that he wore. A walk like me, a perfect score. My mouth felt a little sore. okay. better call this guy, a thought I couldn't ignore.

Hi, Have I seen you before?

A smile to his lips, Oh! Yes
Do I know you?
Ha! How can you not, I am none but you!
What! Don't play games! Gonna kill you!!
Oh come on, to kill the already dead? Can it be true?
Hey. who are you? Now tell me the truth.
Come with me and I will show you the truth

Went beside him. A fear up to my brim. A panic! should I scream? Okay! must be my dream. I stopped suddenly where he asked me to, He pointed a finger to my black shoe, to his black shoe and to the dead man's shoe. All tattered. All dusted. All faded. He pointed me to my scar, to his scar, to the dead man's scar. All tarnished. All burnished. And he laughed with the faded smile. laughed till he vanished a mile. laughed till I was left with my body on the aisle.

This is the first chapter of a poetic story series- Two of a Kind.

Cabin Monologue

I feel nice. I spoke to my friend after a long time. I don’t understand why he distanced himself over the last few years. We were so close in college. We also got a job in the same company. Both of us worked hard to get where we are today. Our means were different, so were our expectations from our position. Of course, I love my family but I wanted to enjoy the benefits that came with my powerful position. He didn’t agree with me. I guess that was the reason he stopped talking to me. I was really happy to talk to him today but then he started the same old nonsense. What does he mean that it will blow in my face? That I should change? Times are changing, he said. I wanted to shout back at him that nothing has changed and it never will.

Cross Connection is not a book

Yes, you read that right. Cross Connection is not a book. Or, let me rephrase that. Cross Connection is not just a book. It is much more than that. It is a feeling I have lived for last so many years. It is a testimonial of the love of two completely opposite people who decided to come together. It is a tribute to their families with completely different cultures who came together and celebrated this bond of love. It is an ovation to the challenges that these two people and their families faced while adjusting with each other and came closer. And it is a promise that in spite of everything, this cross connection will only grow stronger.
