1. She veiled herself, unable to accept the flaws. The world, patiently awaited her exit from hiding, ready for her light.

2. Their reluctant hands met. Sparks flew, warmth coarsed and love grew in the silence. Hiding behind smiles, they embraced it.


This is in response to Twenty Word Tuesday (TWT) held by Bulbul’s Bubble. This week’s prompt was : Hiding (https://wp.me/pbcaAs-xo)

I took two different angles at this. Let me know what you think!

I like both of them! If I had to pick a favourite I’d pick the first one, because it’s so relatable for many women; they often hide when they really have so much to offer the world. They rarely see themselves as they truly are. Great work Rishika πŸ’œ

Hi Jaya, sometimes hiding is the only thing we are good at it. The fear of what the world might say keeps us down. But maybe just maybe, the world isn’t all that bad. Or so I like to believe. Thank you for taking the time to read and comment! I hope you have a blessed day. 🌺

Hey Ann, oh you are so sweet! My favourite is the first one too. Maybe the world isn’t as dark and bad as we may believe at times. Maybe it’s just as scared as we are. Or so I believe. Thank you for taking the time to read and comment! I hope you have a happy day. 🌺
