The Cathartic Risk

Thanks everyone for your love and support for my previous story- The Intriguing Connivance.
Based on popular demand, here is the sequel. Do hope that you like it!

The sky was foggy and hazy and the sea was stormy and appeared risky.

But, only he was on her mind as she plunged into those cold waters just to chase that boat that was carrying him...


SOURCE























Sometimes love makes us put our life in jeopardy at that spur of a moment and we are ready to risk everything as we feel it is a greater jeopardy not to be with our loved one...

Though she was an expert swimmer, she struggled against the force of the sea that warned her, making her feel like a branchless and odd tree.

Reaching the boat, she felt secured and evergreen in the comfort of his arms that proved to be a cathartic experience for her.

  2. She made it but how many others may have done the same and failed, consoling themselves that it was not to be. That water sure looked cold!

    1. Thanks a lot for the info, Sindhu.
      Bushra had informed about this interesting & rewarding contest. However, I had forgotten about it... Initially when I couldn't decide which celeb to pick and what to make her/him do, I stopped my brain-exercise :)
      Hope you have shared your entry. Best wishes to you :)

    1. True Ankita! In the Titanic movie, Jack makes Rose promise that she'll never let go & she lives.
      That was a sinking ship, while this is a speeding boat that our heroine has to catch! :)
      Glad you liked it.

  9. Carrying him... This is open both two interpretations. Is he dead or alive? Ah, love and it's strange pinging.


    You should write such posts more often. You are good at it.

    1. The boat is carrying him as he doesn't know he has been sent on the boat by her. As per the previous story, he was asleep when she connived with the boatman to take him away as there was a threat to his life.
      He is alive, Saru! She reaches him & feels evergreen.

      Thanks a lot for the encouragement :)

  11. i always like love post :) btw the image of this post is behaving in an unexplicit manner with the theme ! dont take it wrong but may be you should keep the size of image medium or small (depending upon image resolution and size)

    1. Thanks for your feedback, Ankur :)
      Yes, the first image was acting strange when I first inserted it. I have faced issues with images before, but this one tested me the most! I increased its size as then it didn't interfere with the text.
      After hearing from you, I spent some time & managed to reduce the size of the image without affecting the text :) Thanks.

  16. Dear Anita,

    Even the strongest swimmer needs to use discretion. I related to her arms feeling like useless tree limbs. A good swim will do that. Glad her story had a happy ending.

    Shalom,
