Write Over the Weekend theme for this week:
This time we’re having at a mother’s day special! Your post must contain the word ‘MOM’ and you have just 5 sentences to complete your story.
‘Happy Birthday, Mom,’ Shruti had a glimmer of smile light up her face as Aanya was approaching her.
Her smile faded into oblivion as Aanya walked past her towards her mother’s portrait, like she usually did each year.
Shruti has been yearning to be addressed as ‘Mom’ while raising her dead twin Smriti’s daughter Aanya for the past ten years.
While Aanya’s father has moved on from his dead wife to her attractive twin sister, Aanya could not accept Shruti who looked like her mom but didn’t smell equally divine.
Shruti decided to wait for Aanya, ageing with her dead sister on the wall.
