Battered , bruised and burnt …

>> Sunday, March 30, 2008

She slowly dragged her bruised frame. Each step taken was a reminder of the pain she was enduring. The scratches on her arms and feet, the torn shirt sleeves, each of them made her relive the torrid time she had been through.
Her burnt skin made her wince and turn away from the mirror.
Why oh lord, she cried aloud. Why did you single me out for this punishment?
Why hadn’t she let her good sense prevail!!!

How in the world could she have gone along on a trek to a dusty mountain on blazing hot summer after noon???

@Alameen: Thanks :)
@Emmanuel: Vattonnumillya.. it was team building exercise from office :D

claytonia vices April 3, 2008 at 10:58 AM  

LOL! Arre it's Puneri conventional wisdom, you never go trekking unless its monsoon or its a full moon night!!

I had a few friends who after spending too many days in a/c cubicles apparently forgot how the weather is outside. It took at least a couple of weeks for them to heal their sun burns after a weekend trek in the sun!!!

But yes, I too thought its about domestic violence!! LOL!

fashion at its best.. my next door neihgbour girl is a fashion freak and she wears all torn clothes.. reminds me of her

Deepti April 4, 2008 at 12:52 PM  

@Claytonia vices: I know thats the golden rule but it was a team building activity from office :)

@Chriz: Hey whats fashion got to do with all this?

Nishanth April 4, 2008 at 5:10 PM

Deepti April 4, 2008 at 5:32 PM  

@Nishanth: yes bro .. it was worth it all but the aches and pains almost had me weeping :D
