The Choice #FridayFotoFiction

“Why am I thinking about it? I cannot do this!” Reena said resignedly as she fell in a heap on the bean bag, the only clutter-free furniture in the room.

Focussed and deliberate, Rahul egged on. There could be a way he could get his point through. Her wish was final but he yearned to be a part of the process.

Turning back from his board, he smiled at her fondly. “It isn’t that tough, darling. You’ll be taught everything; the formulae, their need and even their application. It is exciting!” he cajoled.

Reena wasn’t convinced. She looked around and saw the many admission forms that had temporarily taken over their room. She wanted to opt for Microbiology but couldn’t just waive off her Rocket Scientist brother’s persuasion to join his field.

She got up, walked up to him and said lovingly, “This is your board, Bhaiya. Not mine. Please?”

    1. Sibling love is one of the best, isn’t it? Elder one wants to lead and younger one wants to take a different path. Such debates are endless. 🙂
      Glad you liked it dear.

  4. I am so glad Reena stood her ground. Sibling love is great, but should not influence career choices. Great take on the prompt, Varsha.
    Thank you for writing for #FridayFotoFiction

    1. A healthy discussion is alright as long as it isn’t meant to influence. Thank you so much, Mayuri. Everyone had done it in different ways, I wanted mine to be on a different vein.

  10. This is beautiful and heart touching sibling story

    1. Thank you, Jayshree. 🙂

  11. Yes you said it. We all have our own board and we love ours very much and at the same time we must respect the fact others too will have their own board.

    1. Exactly. Every board has its share of clutter. If there is clutter on ours, then let it be of our choice atleast!

  12. Nisha Malik says:

    I think such situatiins are quite common in every household. I really enjoyed the story. Cute write up.

    1. Very common. We want our kids and family to follow our passions, especially if we are successful in it. Doesn’t work everytime though.

  13. Thats so cute.. sibling love is the best.. i still remember how as kids we uaed to fight, play pranks yet bond so welll..

    1. That’s the fun with siblings. At times we want to keep them away for our sanity and on others we cannot live without them! I used to fight a lot with my brother too. Nostalgic, isn’t it? 🙂

  14. Love that Reena chooses what she actually love for and love the stiff and chic writing style that’s the promising story
