THE PROMISE


“We’ll meet by the beach,” he had promised, “I’ll carry a rose, you wear a scarf.”

Delighted at the prospect of meeting her beloved atlast, Rosa could barely wait.

“When will we meet?” She had asked him umpteenth times, to which he always promised one day soon.

They had met online and fell in love. A world of 'words' had brought them closer, but they had still to meet in real.

And he had agreed today.

Rosa ran to the beach, wearing the scarf as instructed. Anxiously, she looked hoping to see someone carrying a rose – but he never came.

  5. Nandini, If he was that sort of person it was a good thing he didn't show up. She would have been wasting her time with him. Well-written story. : )

  8. Poor Rosa, online love led to real life disappointment. Well at least she didn't give him her bank account details in an email. Or did she?
