Past And Present

“I watched the vulture looking at me hungrily as I lay on the ground bleeding and injured.”

Picture Prompt : Mondays Finish The Story
Next, I saw myself building a pretty sand-castle on the beach when my boyfriend got violent, pushed and jabbed me and destroyed my castle.
Aditi
Picture Prompt : Blog-A-Rhythm
Then, I saw myself as a victim of a bad marriage where my husband treated me like refuse and I was praying to God to take me away.
Picture Prompt : Magpie Tales

Next, I found myself boarding a bus with the partner of my dreams for our honeymoon trip, but there was an accident and we both died hand-in-hand with unfulfilled dreams.

As I started sobbing recounting all my labored experiences of the past few hours that spanned several lifetimes, my Psychologist and Past Life Regression (PLR) consultant comforted me saying that he had recognized who I was.

When he proposed to marry me and I didn't refuse, he tied a thread as a makeshift ring around my ring-finger and promised me that in this present lifetime we both would get over our past and enjoy life as though it's a present (gift).


I believe in Past Life & Past Life Regression, do you? Do share in the comments below.

  3. It seems strange to me to link Friday Fictioneers (where we are supposed to write a 100-word, stand-alone story) to all of these prompts.
    The effort you put into it is quite the undertaking but weird to read.

    1. This is longer than 100 words & is not a stand-alone story.
      Will keep this in mind in the future.

  4. your ' memories' out of the past are horrible... so first of all i want to wish you all the good in your present and future!

    And yes, i do believe in that to.... had similar therapies to learn how to deal with my past and it helped, still does every day.

  7. Very sorry, but I did not understand any of this.
    And I could not see how it connected to the FF prompt.
    Perhaps it is just me.

    1. It's not just you, C.E.

      The only thing I see that might remotely relate to the insertion of two photo prompts. The story itself doesn't relate to either photo which normally wouldn't bother me but too many prompts makes for a lot of confusion.

      I apologize for any offense but I have to be honest.

      Shalom,

      Rochelle

    2. that should be..." might remotely relate to Friday Fictioneers"

      Delete
    3. Tried to relate all the photo-prompts to past life experiences.
      Too many pics can sometimes spoil the broth or enhance it; depends on how we taste/feel/interpret :)
      Will keep your feedback in mind.

  9. The past life memories are troublesome, indeed. However, nice twist at the end of the story.

  10. We discussed this multi-prompt type of submission on Friday Fictioneers last week (see Rochelle's blog). I shared the opinion of others that the 'story' suffers as a result of attempting to weave in all these prompts. So I agree with CE and Dale above - it left me puzzled and more than a little frustrated. I hope you don't mind me saying so.

    1. I love honest feedback, Sandra. Thanks for sharing.
      I feel linking too many photo-prompts & weaving a single story is challenging & I love doing that.
      The result depends :)

  11. Whoa, that was a good one at the end with the past lives angle. Very good story. I like the way you used all the prompts even if it probably against the rules but it does say you can use other photos as long as you use the one for this week. :)

  13. I can see that there's a link. It's just different to what one would expect. And it's a good thing we are all different. What a boring world it would be if we were all the same.

    1. Thank you so much :) It's such difference that we celebrate!
      The same pics elicit so many different stories & such different feedback regarding the stories :)

  21. Only the last bit left me a little confused... she marries the doctor is my guess.
    But appreciate your effort in connecting the challenges together. It stretches your imagination a lot. Great read.

    1. Yes, she marries the doc- her PLR consultant. Perhaps he too has gone through PLR earlier. After listening to her experiences, he realizes that he had been her partner in the past lifetimes. He wants to start life anew.
      Thanks for your appreciation, Indrani :)

  26. Many comments above testify this but I'll add still. I found the progress and the end perfect. Just perfect. The fact that you could do it with so less number of words makes it even more amazing. How love transcends time and births. Beautifully written.
