H - Half-Hearted #AtoZChallenge

"Did you take the tablets?"

"Um. em..No."

"Are you kidding me!? Do you want to keep doing this forever? Why cant you do the bare minimum? "

"Aww. C'mon. I want much as you do..."

Raised eyebrows.

"Did you check your temperature?"


"Did you log the symptoms? I can't believe you! Do you want to go through that torture again?"

"I don't knowwww! I don't feel ready yettt. I know you feel the same too. And you don't even have to go through anything. I have to give up everything I like doing...I am not ready for this phase yet.. I dont knoww...Every month, I suppress my deepest fear --- what if the wriggly little thing made it this time?"

"Look, I understand, but we cannot let this go on forever. Things will only get complicated. Lets just decide. Do you wanna be, or not?"

Thank you for dropping by :) The theme of my posts this year, for the A-Z challenge, is To Show, Not Tell. I hope you enjoyed this piece.


  1. Hmm.....half-hearted beginnings can very well ruin the future, I tell you!

  2. Good job Sampada. I was a bit confused about this sentence "Why cant you do the bare minimum?"

  3. Well written. I'm assuming this is about someone's life threatening disease. I could feel the characters' anxiety.


    Do drop by mine.

  4. Are they trying to avoid pregnancy? or get pregnant? or something else? That's what the dialogue seemed to imply..
