It was late morning at Lake 192. The weather was pleasant. The sun was shining brightly in the sky with a cool breeze blowing every now and then. Jin was seated at the picnic table overlooking the beautiful lake, completely immersed in the laptop in front of him. “Hi Jin, watcha doin?”, I asked as... Continue Reading →

Life – A Symphony

It was a rainy Saturday afternoon as I lay on the couch staring up at the ceiling. Benjamin and Whiskey were entertaining themselves playing tug of war with their blankies. Apart from their playful growling, the only sound that filled the house was the pitter-patter of the rain. The couch was facing a oneway glass... Continue Reading →

Broken

"Minseok, no one believes me." "I believe you. You don’t need anyone else." Both of us were seated on the couch. Min-Min had his arm on my shoulders and we were staring at my phone screen.

“Gooood mooorrnnning Mackenzziiieeee!!” “Gooooddd moorrrrnninnngggg Min-Min!!!”, I replied to Minseok’s lively greeting as I entered the kitchen one cool Saturday morning. I slept well the previous night, the kind of dead sleep I love. “You slept well last night, didn’t you babe?” “Yesssss, I was dead to the world…” “I know, I tried to wake... Continue Reading →

Lazy Saturday

It was a lazy Saturday afternoon. I was stretched out on the couch, watching funny BTS videos on Instagram and laughing to myself. Benjamin, my sweet little beagle, was curled up at my feet snoring loudly. I nudged him every now and then to stop him snoring, but he just woke up for a few... Continue Reading →

Surprise – Part Two

“Jin, seriously, where are we going?”, I asked Jin as the route he was taking lead off onto mud road. “We’re almost there…”, he replied, and as if right on cue, in the distance I spotted a clearing overlooking a lake. “Is this the same lake outside our house?” “Yes, we are on the opposite...
