Rotten Slippers
Start writing a post

“Whatever you said was all a lie! You have hurt me so many times that I can’t even trust you anymore!” – We had this conversation before, and I knew that I couldn't avoid it this time. She was right, as always, and I there was nothing I could do about it.

She was pissed and she had every reason to be. I didn’t want to do anything that would turn this conversation into something that I would regret. Amidst all this, I could not help but notice that it was drizzling outside and that I was wearing some incredibly old slippers. I would have asked her to go out shopping but I knew I could not divert the conversation with something so trivial as this.

I have a bad habit of staring off into space when I think. She noticed me looking away, which was not good. I immediately switched to doing damage control,

"I will try to change!" I practically screamed. All I was asking was for her to give me another chance, but the conversation was long over.

I wanted to tell her that all of it was not a lie. I just didn’t have the courage to make the decision, but she wasn't listening to me anymore. She kept walking away from me to the edge of the terrace.

I got that chill down my spine. The scene was way too familiar and I could only guess what she would do next.

"Stop!! Are you mad??" I yelled at her, which she responded with just a puzzled look. I got my chance. I ran as fast as I possibly could towards her.

My brain was actually appreciating my brisk act. It was never possible before - I never knew I was capable of doing something like this. But, I was overconfident as usual. I almost grabbed her hand, but it was too late...

The next moment I had that gushing feeling. It was all windy…

"Rotten Slippers!"

I could see myself in the reflection of mirrors of the building as I was falling.

I couldn't help but laugh at myself! Here I was thinking I made the right move just a couple of seconds before!

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me
Liz Abere

Owning a pet can get difficult and expensive. Sometimes, their vet bills cost hundreds of dollars just for one visit. On top of that, pets also need food, a wee wee pad for a dog, a litter box with litter for a cat, toys, and treats. Besides having to spend hundreds of dollars on them, they provide a great companion and are almost always there when you need to talk to someone. For the past six years, I have been the proud owner of my purebred Bengal cat named Spock. Although he's only seven years and four months old, he's taught me so much. Here's a few of the things that he has taught me.

Kinder Self - Eyes

You're Your Own Best Friend

Kinder Self - Eyes

It's fun to see all of the selfies on social media, they are everywhere. I see pictures with pouty lips, duck lips and pucker lips. I see smokey eyes, huge fake lashes and nicely done nose jobs, boob jobs and butt lifts. Women working out in spandex, tiny tops and flip flops. I see tight abs and firm butts, manicured nails and toes, up dos and flowing hair. "Wow", I think to myself," I could apply tons of make-up, spend an hour on my hair, pose all day and not look like that. Maybe I need a longer stick!"

Ancient Roman Kings: 7 Leaders of Early Rome

The names and dates of the reigns of the first four kings, as well as the alternation of Sabin and Latin names, are more legendary than historical. The last three kings, of Etruscan origin, have an existence which seems less uncertain.

It is evident that all this is only a legend although archeology shows us little by little that these kings if they did not exist as the ancient history, describes them, have at least in the very Outlines were real as chief of a shepherd’s tribe.
