Do you believe in love at first sight? I for sure didn’t; till the day I met him. I still remember the day I saw him, Lo! There he stood all of a sudden, just 10 to 15 feet away from me. I saw him first, and couldn’t take my eyes away even for a second. But fearing the crowd who stood with me in the bus stop, I looked away only to return my glance at him with out anybody noticing . This went on till he noticed me. I stood stuck to the ground for sometime. My heart skipped a beat. I didn’t know what to do or what to say. I forgot, everything around me, why was I there in the first place? Everything went out of focus except me and him. And our eyes locked with each other.

Slowly he started to walk towards me. And I started to shiver from head to toe, no – nobody would notice that shivering, as it happened inside me. I wondered what to do if he came near me. Should I just avoid his glance, and look away as if I was not interested. Oh no! My heart didn’t agree to that; for I longed for him as much as he longed for me or more. He was nearing, I was shivering. And then he came and stood beside me and looked at me with eyes full of love for me. As if he was declaring his dedication and profound love for me with his eyes. Tell me which girl in this world can resist that.

I too couldn’t and didn’t think twice, I scooped him up in my arms, unmindful of people around me. To hell with all of them and the society. I am his, and he is mine, I decided.


By then, he had started to lick all of my face and hand, and was uncontrollably shaking his tail and shivering with excitement. Without even thinking twice, I called him Cadbury, for he was chocolate brown in colour, my very own Indian Mongrel breed puppy. It was love at first sight for both of us.

Uhmm! What do I say abt myself. Love to read, write, watch tons of movies and loves music. Educated enough to enlighten a few things to a few some who shows the interest to listen. This is me in a nutshell. Will let out little by little, like the cat out of the bag. Ok I think it's time to let out one more passion of mine, which I as much love as writing, and that is cooking. Trying out different new recipies with a slight variation added of mine makes my culinary skills a little adventurous cuisine.

  1. Anamikaji,
    Spectacular story telling. Short story with a rising steep suspense built and ending with a profound love, adoption of a puppy. Keep giving us more of your literary work.

      1. Don’t say that, I am not great. You’re too kind to overdo it . I am learning, learning and experiencing each day. And each blog post has a lot to teach, I learn from you and all the other posts I travel to.
        Thank you!

  2. It is ur modesty to say that u r not a great, and i don’t think I am over doing it when I say u t good at what u do. And as for learning and experiencing from others is a good streak of a wise man and we all will be learning from each other and from people around us till the day we drop fall. No one in this world can say he has or she has mastered over everything or anything for that matter. If he or she says so then he or she is a fool. So keep learning and keep writing and encouraging others. Who knws may be ur encouragement has not saved someone from giving up and from letting going. So keep up the good work.

  3. love this! it works so well in so many ways — the idea of whether it’s wise to to immediately act on feelings — & that fact it’s quite alright to do when it’s a puppy ❤

    “…didn’t think twice, I scooped him up in my arms”

    But truly this is love at first sight ♥

  7. I was damn sure from your load shedding comment that you must be a very creative and wonderful writer. You have proven me correct and I would love to Reblog this on my site. As far as the pup is concerned, Cadbury must have grown up by now… ? , I don’t cuddle dogs since nearly two years…


    1. Haha…I can see that you are simply patronizing me…don’t do that. Oh yes, you sure can reblog this on your site. But this story has been reblogged once in Pencliff, so is another time reblogging possible? If that is not possible may be you can ping back, i think. But I am not sure of the technical aspect of it.
      Why don’t you cuddle them any more, I can assure you they still are very much cuddly…..


      1. Again you have misunderstood me. I spoke the truth, you asked me to shed the light that means you have a creative writers mind. Any other blogger would have directly asked that I didn’t understand can you please explain?. It is clear that your writings must be special…
        For the Reblog I was waiting for your approval. I also don’t have any idea if twice Reblog is possible or not..
        Well, If I cuddle them they will not leave me the next time they see me, Also I’m unable to bear the pain of loosing them… Hope you understand this time what I mean…. I sometimes myself can’t understand what I write or speak 😂

      2. I also recommend everyone not to get close to anyone other than your family. The heartbreak is not easy to handle…. Be close but maintain a distance… Where did you check the Reblog? Today, I will do it then…


  8. It was nice sharing a magical expression. You gave a adorable name to brown skinned people. With simple understandable wonderful you had made magic leaving me in fantasy

  9. Another great love story and what exactly one feels when one developes ‘crush’ syndrome.
    Well penned.
    You cleverly fooled the readers at the end,since they were looking for a handsome guy photo instead readers started admiring a lovely pup.
    Thanks for the suspense.
    I think writing skill+making the readers glue to the story without blinking is God given gift and not all are fortunate.Looks like you won the heart of God.
    To day’s deal- perfect by Ed Sheeran,I know it’s a repeat,but still worth listening .
    To day’s thoughts
    “Surround yourself with people who want best for you”
    Hope this Monday brings you lots of money

    1. Thank you for the sincere appreciation Sri….Always love a true and sincere expression about the work .. Glad you found this post. This is one of my favourite prose work. Glad you found it heart touching too.


    2. Ed Sheerans – Perfect song was just perfect in every sense. Looks like one of his earlier works as he looks very young in the video.
      Yes you already had recommended this song but was worth hearing again.
