  1. 1 "A cold wind blew mercilessly, chilling Alpana to the marrow, as she opened the creaky closet door. The overhead dark clouds skimmed past the orange sun from time to time, throwing the little patch of forest into blackness. Flashes of lightning in the distnace made the already nervous Alpana not want to step out..."

  2. 2 "The twigs cracked under Alpana's feet as she stumbled out of the closet; Maitreyi's calm presence gave her the hope that the forest was a safe place. As the two girls trudged ahead, the winds of the forest roared, blowing an eerie chill past the endless line of dying trees..."

  3. 3 "The wildlife held its breath as Alpana embraced Maitreyi; the girls had been in love for the longest time ever. And although the leafless trees stood like witches over their petite figures, they stood there undeterred. They had finally come out of the closet and now there was no looking back..."

  4. 4 "The love between Maitreyi and Alpana overflowed and changed the mood of the forest. The mischevious sun peeped through the clouds and washed the forest with a golden glow as the girls trudged forward. The tree's soft whispers against the wind was like a gentle lullaby, comforting the along the way..."

  5. 5 "An atmosphere of calmness and peace pervaded, and the beauty was quietly stunning. The soft green grass under their feet streched to the horizon and the song of the river was gentle. Alpana and Mitreyi had left the closet behind and stepped into a new world. The sky above them streched as far as the eye could see in an arcade of turquoise-blue, punched with fluffy clouds. They walked hand in hand, observing the screeching swallows as they chased whirring dragonflies in a dance of life and death. The golden sun had evaporated the fear in their hearts and filled it with hope..."

  6. 6 "The cute little shrubs of the forest cast their reflection on the water forming buttery silhouettes; it was still early in the morning and the music of the birds floated in the air. Tiny fishes broke the surface of the water ripples to glimmer in the Sun's reflection. The girls smiled in their newfound comfort and decided to play a game of hide and seek..."

  7. 7 "Alpana whispered, 'Now I can do whatever I want.' Maitreyi smiled and said, 'I've never stopped you.' "

  8. 8 "The forest turned to pale copper as the rays of the sun pulled itself across the horizon and slid in between the grey clouds. Alpana tightened the knot one final time. 'good luck, Mai' she whispered..."

  9. 9 "The greys began to fade, as liquid gold crept up from leaf to limb. Maitreyi and Alpana had never been happier..."

  10. 10 "Maitreyi surrendered to the beat of her feet against the rocks that littered her path. Her laughter, breathless and sporadic mingled fluently with the morning chorus of the birds. Sweat spread itself across her forehead, causing her hair to cling to it as her throat pined for more air. The delicious rush of wind skimmed past her face as she ran around trying to catch Alpana. And as the canopy overhead thickened, her steps grew muffled because of the leaves that blanketed the forest floor; the ground was no longer cold beneath her soles..."

  11. 11 "Suddenly during the game, Maitreyi collapsed to the ground as she felt the pain as strong as hundred daggers sinking into her feet. Her eyes were watery with the sheer pain and her breathing was heavy. Sweat dripped down the side of her face and covered her forehead in a thin sheen. A nasty thorn had penetrated her leg and she was in great pain..."

  12. 12 "Seeing Maitreyi in pain caused Alpana's chest to swell with melancholy. However, Alpana willed herself to comfort Maitreyi and pull the thorn out of her flesh. She ignored the ringing in her ears, the heat from her cheeks as she felt the need to cry; it was her idea to play hide and seek after all. The small punctures in Alpana's heart slowly filled with anxiety, knowing that she didn't have long before she completely lost it. She sucked in a breath and held it there. She had to be strong. For Maitreyi. For her."

  13. 13 "Maitreyi's thumb caressed Alpana's earlobe softly, her fingers supporting the back of her head as she leant in firml, yet seductively, placing her lips over Alpana's nose. Ragged breathing and dancing heartbeats brought a fiery heat to the cold forest air. 'It's not your fault...' whispered Maitreyi."

  14. 14 "Privala, very much like Maitrey and Alpana had found freedom in the very same forest a few days ago. So when she saw the girls embrace each other, her heart was overcome with joy. She observed them from a distance and was glad that they had come out..."


    Slika in besedilo: ARJUN KAMATH
  15. 15 "Privala blessed the girls and walked away.."

  16. 16 "It was a new day and the glimmer of hope strenghtened with every passing minute."

  17. 17 "Maitreyi and Alpana's joyful laughter echoed through the forest... But somewhere in the distances, maybe miles away, maybe just a few feet, they heard something moving. Once, twice. Something heavier dropped, crashed into the rubble, echoed off the trees. Then silence again..."


    Slika in besedilo: ARJUN KAMATH
  18. 18 "The Rakshasas of the forest had heard Maitreyi and Alpana's laughter..."

  19. 19 "The only love that was allowed was between man and woman..."


    Slika in besedilo: ARJUN KAMATH
  20. 20 "Maitreyi and Alpana would pay for their sins..."


    Slika in besedilo: ARJUN KAMATH
  21. 21 "Maitreyi and Alpana were dragged through the forest mercilessly... Their biggest sin was that they had loved eachother, and not a man."


    Slika in besedilo: ARJUN KAMATH
  22. 22 "The love that brought them together, was the love that tore them apart..."


    Slika in besedilo: ARJUN KAMATH
  23. 23 "Maitreyi and Alpana were shoved back into the closet..."


    Slika in besedilo: ARJUN KAMATH
  24. 24 "Nobody heard them screaming, nobody wiped their tears. Maitreyi clutched Alpana's hand tightly as the doors closed on them..."


    Slika in besedilo: ARJUN KAMATH
  25. 25 "Silence hung in the air like a bereaved soul as Maitreyi and Alpana embraced each other one last time..."


    Slika in besedilo: ARJUN KAMATH
  26. 26 "Plumes of black smoke filled the closet and the searing heat slowly made it difficult to breathe; Maitreyi and Alpana held onto each others flesh. All the wonderful moments that they spent together flashed before their eyes as the closet erupted into flames..."


    Slika in besedilo: ARJUN KAMATH
  27. 27 "God wept a silent rain as Privala screamed and cried... But it was too late. She sobbed as she sank to her knees, not caring for the damp mud that dirtied her dress; she had blessed the girls a few days ago and now they were gone."
