The girl on the balcony (Chapter- 1)

Dear reader,

I know I have been away for a relatively long time. I haven’t been active here: I didn’t post or read any of your work as well, which I will try doing now. A thank you to those who still read my work, despite me not reading theirs, and to those who’ve stuck around for so long, supporting me.

While I’ve been away, I didn’t stop writing completely, and so I’m going to share what I’ve been writing all this time. It’s going to be different than my previous writings, since I’m trying to explore a different side of mine. It might surprise you, but I hope you like this change…

I hope you enjoy reading this piece of fiction. It’s a short story, but I’m publishing it in parts/chapters, so it’s easier for you to read.

Tip: welcome this with an open mind.

Welcome to my balcony! Chapter 1 begins here…

Naming the family…

My fingers wrapped around a cup of cold coffee (because it’s spring, and I can drink my coffee chilled, without having mum scold me); sitting on the balcony with Mrs Bewakoof, Jr Bewakoof 1, Jr Bewakoof 2 and Jr Bewakoof 3 (in an egg, being hatched).

If you’re wondering who the Bewakoof family is, it’s the family of pigeons living on the floor drain on my balcony. And, if you’re wondering why I’ve named them all Bewakoof, it’s because ‘bewakoof’ means ‘brainless’ in Hindi, and pigeons are the most brainless creatures I’ve ever seen. I’m serious. Mrs Bewakoof decided to build her nest on the floor drain on my balcony. And then, she lay two pale-white eggs on that clumsy drain-based nest. I mean, I’ve given full justice to their name, haven’t I?
