Three Line Tale #32: The mysterious guest

Nainika, Ananya, and Kavya huddled together behind the curtains as they struggled to get a better view of the mysterious guest performer for the Annual Ballet event.

The identities of this guest had been a closely guarded secret and everyone was extremely curious just like the triplets huddled behind the stage.

From their viewpoint behind the stage, the triplets watched in amazement as Mrinalini, a former ballet dancer who also happened to be their mother, made a truly awe-inspiring comeback to ballet after a gap of several years!

This post was written in response to the Three Line Tales, Week 239 prompt by Sonya. Thanks to Sonya for hosting this challenge. If you want to participate, please visit the link for instructions and other guidelines!

I am late for this week’s prompt but better late than never! I am so busy that I am not even getting the time to schedule posts. 😦

For the visually challenged readers, the image shows three young girls dressed in white, frilly ballet dance costumes in what seems to be the backstage. Their faces are mostly away from the camera as they look towards the stage. Stage equipments are also visible in the periphery.

Stay safe, everyone.

The 6WSP roundup post for last week will also be a bit delayed. Please bear with me. My schedule has turned slightly hectic!

      1. I post all of them. Uh oh. I couldn’t find a pingback or comment on the prompt post! Oops, now I remember your comment on my story.
        Whenever I’m doing a roundup post, I go through the comments and pingbacks on the prompt post. I couldn’t find yours in there. Sorry about that. Can you please comment with the link to your story. I’ll include it in the roundup straightaway.

      1. You’re welcome. Shweta, I just have a quick question… would you be willing to give me permission to link to your page for an award post I’m doing? Otherwise, I can simply write your name without the link if you’d prefer.

      2. I’ve no problems with you using a link to my page. However, it’s been a while since I’ve done award posts. If I have already been nominated for it, I would request you to kindly pass it on to someone who has not yet been nominated for the award. I hope you’ll understand.

      3. I’m sorry, I should have clarified. It’s not an award nomination (I don’t do those). It’s more of a mention for your support of me, because you have been so lovely.


  1. What a beautiful cooked up story!
    You give beautiful names to your characters.

    I liked how it said it was their mother only. Interesting!
    No matter how late you are, you never fail to disappoint your readers.

    Good one Shweta!

    1. Oh Rashmi, I’m so happy that the stories I cook up and the many characters I create have such an effect on you. It’s every writer’s dream come true – to always make their readers feel happy. Thank you, my dear Rhyming Princess ❤️
