IFW Edition 4 - Rediscovering family

What happens when a soldier, presumed dead for five years, returns home to his wife and his son? What emotions plague the wife, who's now become independent and grown to accept a life without a man? How does the son react, then a cute little ten year old, now a grown teen who had to learn the ropes and grow up too soon? What emotional upheavals does this life changing event bring to the family? 

Read my entry to the Indifiction Workshop’s fourth edition here. Conceptualized by two popular bloggers TF and C. Suresh, Indifiction is a workshop for writers interested in fiction. Every edition’s winners define the succeeding plot and judge the next edition’s entries. The winners of the previous round; Rajrupa Gupta, Nabanita Dhar and TF would be judging this round. The plot has primarily been coined by them in conjunction, and can be accessed here. Feel free to leave your comment here or at the Indifiction link!
I would love to hear your views!

    1. Thanks Bikram! :) Yes, life does throw unexpected events our way doesn't it! We build up expectations from people and circumstances so much that we get upset and all worked up when they don't live up to our expectations! But every experience is a learning - helps us deal with future relationships better - be they friends or family!

    1. Thank you so much Megha! That was very sweet of you! Yep, too high expectations do fall flat! Circumstances change and it's really in our best interests to learn and adapt!
