“Love Until The Sun Grows Cold” – my entry to the GetPublished contest



  
This is the story after the separation; it’s about a love that is immortal, eternal and evergreen. Not everyone is in a relationship, but each of us is always part of a love story- either our own, or someone else’s.

Heartbreaks can be terrible- not just for those who are involved, but also for those who love them. Adapted from a real life story (the names and location has been changed). On a ferry from Singapore to Bintan Island, Indonesia, Tara meets a man she knew as a little girl.

With their past crashing into the present, Uday and Tara try to come to terms with the consequences of losing someone they both loved, in the process discovering a new side to their own personalities and redefining their relationship with each other.   

Extract:

“....he had thought of a hundred different things to say to her then, to hurt her as much as she had hurt him. But he knew what would bother her most- silence on his part. He never replied. After Seher left, Tara seemed to have become a different person. She looked like she carried some secret with her; something that she would guard jealously, like treasure, but which seemed to give her some sort of masochistic pleasure.”


This is my entry for the HarperCollins–IndiBlogger Get Published contest, which is run with inputs from Yashodhara Lal and HarperCollins India.
