He was the Black Mamba. Feared and respected secret agent.
But not here at this reunion.
Here he was once again the little school boy watching butterflies out of his classroom, mesmerized by their beauty.
Here he was the dreamer, the poet.
At long last, he was Bipin once again.

That’s beautiful! I’m discovering ways to think like that! All I cold imagine was writing about the butterfly 😛
I guess having an ad filmmaker husband who is constantly pushing you to think out of the box, is one of the reasons I re-wrote this piece over ten times with three different stories before I finally settled on this 🙂
Lol! I like that!!! 😛 Mine was a flash fiction before I tried to rhyme and then posted it! 😛
Guess we writers are like that, we don’t even know ourselves what our posts are going to look like in the end hahahaha 😀
😀 Haha, I totally agree!!
Wonderful Gauri very well written.
Like the contrast.
Thanks Inderpreet 🙂
Quite imaginative, Gauri! Enjoyed it very much.
Thanks Beloo ❤
Love the direction in which you took the prompt. I admire the contrast that plays out between the tough agent and the innocent boy. Wove all 3 prompts in wonderfully! Thank you for linking this up ❤

Thanks Preeti ❤ 🙂
Loved that contrast Black Mamba to Bipin. No matter how successful we become it’s always a pleasure to revisit your childhood. Nice.
Isn’t it? In the company of our school friends, we even if it is but momentarily, revert back to childhood 🙂
Wonderful take on the prompt Gauri 🙂 Stepping out of the hectic life and rejoicing moments is at times all you need! 🙂
Thanks Shanx 🙂
I am so happy for BIpin, loved your take on the prompt.
Thanks Sulekha 🙂
Something as simple as a visit to the old school— you’ve perfectly blended that into fiction with an undeniable punch. Beautiful, Gauri 🙂
Thanks Sreeja, great to know that you enjoyed it 🙂
