Let your imagination run wild and write a story keeping these words in mind!

We’ll both forget the breeze
Most of the time

– Song by Damien Rice

Word count – 179 Words

Another Chance

Sarah was so wrapped in her own little world that she didn’t realise Mario was cheating on her. So, when the bomb dropped, she was hit pretty badly. She broke down and even decided to quit her marriage of 12 years. It took her a long time to accept the reality and calm down.

Just when they were ready to give their marriage another chance, the boat rocked again. However, this time it was Sarah who fell for the subtle charms of another man, a married man no less. She didn’t think about right or wrong, her husband, her marriage and her future. All that mattered was the present.

But when she got over the first flush of attraction, she realised her mistake. Guilt besieged her. Instead of hiding it, Sarah confessed to her husband.

“We’ll both forget the breeze
Most of the time.

But if we love each other and see a future together, this time too shall pass.”

These lines by her husband restored her faith in her relationship and the man she had never stopped loving.


Listen to the full song here.

  2. That is an unusual prompt, and I love how you incorporated it into a story, Anshu. Lovely read.

  3. Abhijit Ray says:

    Yes everyone makes mistakes. I hope we are as forgiving other peoples mistakes as we are to our own. At the end of the day, “to err is human!”. Nice story.

    • Thank you Abhijit! Yes, to err is human, but it is very difficult to forgive someone, however, when we commit the mistake ourselves, that’s when we realise how everyone makes mistakes and forgiving is the right thing to do to move forward.

  4. Priya says:

    It’s great to read your take. We all have interpreted it differently. Loved your take. And absolutely love the song.you have captured the emotion perfectly, Anshu.
