mythical creature

Jeff flicked a glance at Shean who was plonked in the armchair warming herself by the side of the flaming embers.

“Have you heard about those gryphons?” asked Jeff nibbling cookies.

“Ooooh, the mystery deepens! Did they prepare a lavish slap-up dinner for you?” Shean batted her eyes smugly.

“Yep, when I stumbled upon them while bivouacking up the Alpine hills…use your noggins!”

“So, what did those ferocious, Argus-eyed mythical beings do?” mellowed she.

Slightly affronted, now, Jeff was browned off.

“They don’t browbeat anyone into storytelling.”

Smita Ray is the mother of two lovely kids and hails from northeastern India. 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.
