RETRIBUTION - Trevor Penn

Prologue
How was I to know that I was being escorted to an arid existence bereft of any and all emotion? I imagined no guile and continue to be convinced that there was none. So, is it my fault that I’ve hardened beyond any tender caress’ repair and show no semblance of a being sodden with passion?

How am I to compel my eyes to gleam mischief, and in so doing, communicate my innate desire? When you search my dry eyes for a missing jamboree, I have not an option but to tearlessly shy away. I do not expect to be rescued. I’ve been ordained far greater torment, and any attempt to wrinkle the design will only lead to a plot far more contrived. I ask, I implore you to not be my savior. Leave. Look away. Your charm - as a dying ember or a melting snow flake - is lost on me. I can tell without any sliver of doubt that I will find my way back to you. I’m no prophesier but I do know for certain, I’m due retribution.

@ second_wind

Having dictionary.com on a tabbed window is more convenient.:-P

Anu Russell said...

why? what? actually what the? hmm...

that above simply meant...that it just went over my head!

Trevor Penn said...

It's just a prologue, Anu. It'll make more sense when you get the complete picture. :)

Botchtti said...

Sounds like a lot of stuffes been running through your head for a long time (sometimes i feel it has been very difficult for you to let go - i can tell you i know how that feels)

I may be completely wrong on that fron tooo....

Anyways what i do know of you is that you will always find your way back in your own time....

Canary said...

Thanks for dropping by at mah nest... quite a blog u have here! :) Will keep flying by now!

Canary said...

In that case, have you changed your diplay name? :|

Trevor Penn said...

@ botchtti
This isn't about me. It's fiction.

@ canary
Hmm... That's a possibility. It's been a while though. I've also definitely changed my profile pic.

Canary said...

So there is the reason, and I doubted my super swift Intel Pentium memory!

rashi_pratibimb said...

hmmm...as most ppl above said, I too need to say this...thr was hardly anythng that I could comprehend:)

But somehow there is just one thing common in all your posts.

Trevor Penn said...

@ canary
Your memory might be swift but i wonder how much of it is really in there... hehehe :P

@ rashi
It's just a monologue. :)

And, what is it that you find common in all my posts???

rashi_pratibimb said...

might not be appropriate to put here.

Trevor Penn said...

Curiosity is killing this cat!!!

rashi_pratibimb said...

Yo DONK!!

Wakeup and write something. Janta getting bored at work.

Manpreet said...

Logical, no doubt But does it absolve someone of having to get attached??

Pinku said...

Trevor,

that prologue shook me up...I dont know what u have in mind to continue it with but this bit itself was familiar and disturbing...

waiting for the rest.

Trevor Penn said...

@ rashi
You still owe me an explanation.

@ pranky
I thought work was getting busier, No?

@ manpreet
Never been there? once bitten, never shy? or is it only smitten, never bitten?

It's more like, "you fool me once, shame on you; you fool me twice, shame on me."

Thanks for the comment though. Do stop by again.

@ pinku
Thanks. Further chapters seemed to be turning more autobiographical and depressing to write. The effort was thus canned. :-(
