This is my first endevour at writing anovel better call it as a short story which got a little bit lengthy.

Stimulation I got from a challenge set on Booksie to write on the topic "Alter Ego"

Earlier I just thought of doing such thing but a lazy flesh. This time I thought of doing it really:-)

So here I'm with a short story, hope it qualifies with the theme.


I would appreciate every criticism aswell as compliment. I just hope you like it.

Nothing special in it I guess. No extra work has been done at choosing words,

idioms or phrases. Just goes with the flow of the thought.

I hope it would be easy to read and grasp the idea given in the story.

This story is dedicated to my first endevour at writing a story;-) (Sorry, for being so self-centered)

Disclaimer: It has nothing to do with the writer's life or perception. It's merely a work of fiction and imagination.

Any resemblence to characters, thoughts, themes would be just a coincidence (sweet one though).

I don't intend, even a bit, at plagiarism, if found any ,this writer would like to apologise beforehand.
