"Is it that important for you to go and settle in the US?" Ria asks Rohan with tears in her eyes.

"Absolutely. You know how hard I've worked to get here. I'm going and I want you to come with me."

"I can't leave my parents behind, you know that. I'm all they have."

"We'll come visit them every year. Come on Ria, once we're married I think it's better we settle down there."

"But this the place I belong to. I do not want to leave."

"I will have to."

"Do I have a say?"


"Okay then, goodbye."

This drabble (100 word fiction) is written for Friday Fictioneers, 24th June 2016.


  1. It is always difficult to choose between work and family. Every relationship requires sacrifice and adjustments to survive.

  2. Well done, Ria, I'd say :)
    She sounds a lot like you :D

  3. So there! She sure told him! Good little story all told in dialogue for the short word count. Well done!

  4. Ria sounds like you. Good one, Soumya.

  5. While every relationship requires compromises, doesn't sound like Rohan was willing to compromise! Good on her for taking a stance
