in his dotage

When Siena ditched her boyfriend Jim, our eyes were out on stalks.

Poor Jim, never went back on his promises and brought her lollipops every day. He also helped her with her homework. Now fucked by the fickle finger of fate, his hopes were dashed.

Bullish Wen, who always did Jim’s biding, was seething and when he stumbled upon Siena before class, he laughed trollishly at her.

“Didn’t expect such harrowing day. Initially, I thought someone pulled a fast one.” Teena slumped onto the stairs.

“Her new boyfriend is man enough to handle her tantrums or so the story goes.”

“Which class? Is he fit for her?”

” Six A. Soon he will grow a moustache.”

” A boyfriend in his dotage in this big wide world? Phooey!”

Her perpetual displeasure arising from the hypocrisy in the society underneath the semblance of religion, culture as well as the conditioning for compliance urged her to put down the impressions in her mind. In her spare time, she likes to have some culinary adventures along with her kids trying new recipes or crafting. She describes herself as -- a soulmate, a life alighted on the earth catching the rhythm passing by her. A tinge of joy colours her world and lays its feet on the land where revellers are awaiting her to get into the groove.
