Half Widow #fridayfotofiction #fictionwriting
As they together stepped out of the office , someone pointed “Hey , Our HR manager makes a sweet couple ”
” O ..No…No they are not couple , , Roma Mam is a widow, rather Half Widow ”
“Half Widow ???? What does it mean ?? Who is that man ??Whose hand is she holding ????”
Ten years ago
Roma’s husband Rajiv was continually facing failures at work . That day when his bad luck hit him once again in the job interview , it might had become unbearable for him. In the evening , Rajiv went for routine walk but just didn’t come back. Lots of search in different cities & on social media , police complaints , but no clue at all . Rajiv just disappeared from Roma’s life . Is he even alive ? Nobody knows.
So many years have passed . People started calling Roma as Half Widow.
Roma had to struggle but she strengthened herself too and reached the position of the HR manager of the company.
Today , Even when she has to say NO to any job interviewee, she makes it a point to bid him bye smilingly and hold his hand convincingly , hoping that no other soul diappears so strangely from anybody’s life .
Linking it with Tina for #fridayfotofiction
Note : I came to know of an upcoming movie to be released in March 2018. The movie is named ‘Half Widow ‘ and it’s about women empowerment. I enjoyed writing for #fridayfotofiction after a long gap , with my mind taking ‘Half widow’ as a prompt.
