Trifextra: Week Sixty-Eight


On to the weekend prompt.  This weekend Trifecta is asking for exactly 33 words, 30 of our own and three of the following:

topple     paradigm     underneath     nerve     honey     loop


Before I could blink,Sunday is here and once again I am running late.This week,I managed to read almost all the entries at a breathless speed but there wasn’t enough time to leave comments.Makes me feel guilty but real life is rushing in and Friends & readers ,I am afraid ,this is going to be the story of my life at Trifecta for the coming two weeks.Worse,after the next two weeks,it may go downhill as I may not get to even write,forget reading or commenting.You see,next month,we(daughter,me & Hubby) leave for another city to get my daughter admitted  to a college.We will be there for about two weeks.Once we return, we have to start packing first for her transfer to her new hostel and before long,we both will be following her.Sometimes around July end,I will be re-joining the workforce and hubby is taking up a new job.As you all know,in this upheaval of packing,moving and unpacking,net connection will be missing ,thus making me miss all the fun!However,I sincerely hope to return for the Trifecta challenges regularly from mid-August.Friends,wish you all the best and I am sure you all understand.Will miss you all and your wonderful writing,take care.

Here is my submission for this weekend 🙂





Jon married Rita,believing  life was honey and roses.


Then,she ran away with his best friend and his money


A paradigm shift occurred.


Now Jon sees only betrayal cloaked underneath every relationship.

  1. As well he might. Hard to let go of betrayal, to not see it everywhere. Good luck with your move. I hope it all goes smoothly. You’ve got a lot going on including going back to work, no small thing. In your absence I’ll miss seeing your name, and reading your supportive comments. I look forward to reading updates about your change of circumstances when you return to the weekly challenges. Cheers, Atreyee!

  2. Betrayal wreaks havoc from the day it happens forward. Very damaging to self-esteem among many other things. Wonderfully written and interesting as always!

    Best of luck with all you have going on for the next few months. Changes like yours are a lot of work but rewarding. You’ve always leave such supporting comments and visit everyone regularly. I will miss your notes. And if the opportunity to write strikes, jump in! We will be waiting!
