Aimed! – A Musical Short Story in English

Written by Swati Joshi

July 16, 2018

Swara is getting the best sound director’s award this year. She along with her parents dreamed this for years. But it wasn’t the same one and a half year back. Free spirited Swara was accompanied by the love of her life, Alekh. Swara totally had left behind her dream of becoming something other than Alekh’s companion. Her father was very much disappointed with her losing the focus.

As it happens many a times; one day, Alekh left her with a broken heart without giving any explanation.

But, with the support of her parents, downtrodden Swara bounced back and hit the bullseye.

It’s the day; Swara’s father leaving an empty seat is waiting for someone.

“Who’s coming Papa?” asks Swara.

“Wait, I owe this to someone.” replies her father.

“Hello girl, you have nailed it!” Alekh is standing before them smiling.

Swara’s father welcomes him. Swara is totally bewildered.

“Sorry dear but all of us wanted you to get this. So…”

Before her father could finish the statement,

“All of you turned it on me?” says Swara.

Alekh winkingly, “And the pain caused aimed it completely! Look, here’s your nomination…”

It plays on the screen…
