The deja vu

flash fiction writing #FridayFotoFiction Photo Prompt

“Maya – I think we’ll have to go to the other end of the city to collect your school stuff today. Let’s get going.”


Both of them spent an enjoyable day after their shopping, catching the latest flick in movies and having a pizza lunch positively swimming in cheese. Walking back from the nearest metro station, Aks seemed lost in contemplation. Maya felt a strange sense of déjà vu walking between the blocks. She stiffened as the saw the now-familiar burly shadows creeping up. She turned to shout – “Aks..” and found her limp form being pushed into a car behind. Shocked, she tried to rush to her rescue and was stopped mid way, being pulled into the same creeping sense of nothingness.

Linking up  with Tina and Mayuri for fridayfotofiction.

  1. The plight of women today, despite our bragging about stepping into the modern world. I wonder what kind of modern world we are living in where women is still not respected in many ways, girls are still killed in the womb, and boys/men are still taught to treat females as their property.
    Great take 🙂
