The following day, despite having decided to return to Germany early, walking towards the security gate at the Airport was the most difficult thing for Andy to do. She was after all leaving her heart behind.

“Don’t go Andy”. Words spoken in a much loved voice stopped her in her tracks. “I love YOU. Your voice or lack of it does not matter.”

Andy stood shell-shocked. Kannan had just stated THE reason for her unexplainable behavior.

The fact was - she could not speak. Andy had lost her voice in the accident.

Gently turning her around, Kannan said, “I love you for your passion, courage and conviction. Be my wife, my partner for life. Stay.”

A few steps away stood Vijay, smiling and silently encouraging Andy to allow Kannan into her life.

Held lovingly in Kannan’s arms Andy realized she had indeed come home.

The End

P.S: This was the First prize winner of Short story contest held in November 2012.

immensly readable
by: Kumuda

Dear Deepa
Let me put before you my thought process as Iread your story.
So here is a romantic story, the type of story that the movie blockbusters of nineteen sixties were made of..But what is the matter with me? Was'nt I a great fan of those movies?I did enjoy them immensly as I am enjoying this story now.It is readable.Has a beautiful narration and a mature style.I am enjoying every word, sentence and the language.
The story though predictable shakes you in the end.Richly deserves the prize it won in the competition.

Beautiful narrative
by: Abitha

What makes a story special is not really the plot but the way it is narrated. Your narration shows a mastery of style and a coherent flow. It made for very delightful reading. Keep writing.
