It’s magic!


Shania takes a tissue from the coffee table and sniffles hard .’ I guess, I am ready for yet another adventure ‘, she utters , gathering her broken self together.

Dropping off her 2 year old at the day care , she sets out to  test her hunting skills, afresh.

‘Not enough, not enough!’, Jim curses himself ,staring  towards  the sparse ‘catch’ in his fishing net with disappointed abandon .

He had promised his wife enough fish to allow her some rest time with little Toby.

Shania is visibly pregnant,  on her way back from the other side.

She hopes , the alert border policemen do not recognize her .

Lady luck guides her safely to her doorsteps.

She empties the stuffs from her sweat shirt and hides them in the closet to sell at the local market at a higher rate.

Jim returns home, dejected.

‘I got this talisman for you . Tomorrow will be a better day ‘, Shania says, tying the  amulet around Jim’s wrist. It was enough to uplift his dampened spirits. Temporarily .
