The Diary Of A Rolling Stone

Let's Talk books, places and more

Date

December 28, 2015

I want to fall in love again. The cold breeze outside, the freezing palms, the warmth of the woolen cardigans, the tik-tak of the belle’s shoes is making me mad again. Come winters and I want to fall in love again.

I grew up in a place where Christmas is very widely celebrated. The winter air is filled with Christmas carols and shopping. Everywhere you will come across a Santa with his big bag of goodies pounding out to share with each passerby. The big  Christmas star dangling from the top of the tin roofs comes alive with beautiful color lights at dusk every day.

The hustle and bustle of the young crowd grows in the neighborhood café. Sometimes the guitar sometimes the drum and sometimes just the vocal makes the cold evenings even more enchanting here. Come Christmas the fever does not subside but escalates to the ecstasy of the New Year celebration.

The love birds are seen almost everywhere walking hand in hand lost in their world waiting for the New Year to bring them new desires. The entire city dresses up in the winters to celebrate love. Such is the beauty of SHILLONG. Come fall in love.

I may be hundreds of miles away but my mind still wanders in the valley among the hills. The pines swaying gently murmuring some love tune in the ears.

I am dying to hear his voice, feel his breathe brushing my nape as he whispers in my ears, the way he looks at me melts me down as if nobody exists other than the two of us at the bonfire on the rooftop.

I blush unknowingly when he calls my name in the crowd just to show he cares, he holds my hand stealthily but avoids looking into my eyes. He looks at me lovingly when I am seriously discussing business with other guy only to shift my focus. Damn!The way he smiles looking at me when I wait for a compliment from him.

Even after all these years I feel the same every winter! The magical spell of love is so awesome that I have forgotten the count of time. Come winters and I fall in love gain.

AN EXCERPT – FROM LIVING WITH FIRE


Joshua was gaping at her, his mouth opening and closing silently like a fish out of water. There was a sudden increase in icy coldness, and he froze into a statue, his face now expressionless and his eyes drawn and unfathomable as always when he was deeply distressed or too emotional for his own good.

“Can you hear yourself? You sound like some fatalistic, maniacal sect member or the leader of a dangerously foolish occult movement,” he said with that unnerving, neutral calm of his.

To cover up the disappointment and hurt and anger at his reaction, Felicia threw her head back and laughed coldly, mirthlessly. She tossed her hair over one shoulder, stood up straight and stared into his eyes.

“Thanks for the suggestion. I think I’d rather like that. An occult movement revolving around the power of fire. I’ll be the terrifying fire goddess ruling mercilessly, with everyone falling at their feet and offering me their heart on a platter. I’ll make the world burn until it puts the sun to shame. Want to stick around and watch, snowman?”

As soon as the words had left her mouth, she wanted to take them back. What had she just said? This wasn’t her, this wasn’t normal, this wasn’t right! This was her Joshua she was wounding and repelling…and yet, she would not take the words back. Didn’t she have every right to behave like this?

The choice is yours. Rise and shine. Go out and rule!

The voice inside her mind was so powerful she half thought she had spoken the words out loud.

Beside her, Kyle was cackling and clapping his hands, and her fire dragon was turning cartwheels a little ahead. There was so much heat around her, inside her. It needed out.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR 

Almost as soon as Devika Fernando could write, she imagined stories and poems. After finishing her education in Germany and returning to her roots in Sri Lanka, she got a chance to turn her passion into her profession. Having lived in Germany and in Sri Lanka with her husband has made her experience the best (and the worst) of two totally different worlds – something that influences her writing. Her trademark is writing sweet and sensual, deeply emotional romance stories where the characters actually fall in love instead of merely falling in lust.
What she loves most about being an author is the chance to create new worlds and send her protagonists on a journey full of ups and downs that will leave them changed. She draws inspiration from everyone and everything in life. Besides being a romance novel author, Devika is a faithful servant to all the cats and dogs she has adopted. When she’s not writing, she’s reading or thinking about writing.
