Re: One Last Scene from "Goes Home" (Reposted)

Duly responding to the patriarchal prodding, the Mirza addressed Ginger, gently fanning his handkerchief in front of his nose with one hand and shushing the girls with the other.

"One thing you must appreciate, young sir, " he said slowly, as though choosing his words with care.

This is delightful. Will Ginger need to come to their aid at some point in the future and we can all come back?
Good thought... :kill: :kill:

Shyly, Ameena added, "Please, we will not bother you after this. We understand that for you it is only a way out of this bad situation, but we..." her voice tailed off as she glanced nervously at her parents. Somehow, her timidity brought Ginger out of his goggle-eyed trance. Groping for words, he e...

Re: Biggles and women

Just a thought. In Looks Back Biggles is almost caught in Marie's room when Reinhardt shows up unannounced. It's her quick thinking that saves him as she hides him in her bedroom instead of dashing for the window. After that, she formally asks for his forgiveness. "I am truly sorry for what I did to...

Slanting a quick glance at her grim-visaged progenitor, Deepti replied, "You see, I'm told I used to have an older brother, my parents' first child. But when he was very small, he got ill, typhoid or some fever like that. And because of the Partition, there were riots and curfew everywhere. The doct...

Aww. Biggles is getting sentimental. Are there going to be revelations from his past? This is working out nicely, ICS.

The Mirza reclaimed the explanatory mode. "They are offering you the Raksha Bandhan, the Knot or Tie of Protection, young sir! " he announced. "But, why? How? " Ginger was completely perplexed. Deepti spoke again. "Back there, when we fell and those boys were trying to pick me up, and I was so uncom...

Totally taken aback, Ginger could only stutter, "Ra--bro--what? " The flush on the girls' faces deepened. "Rakhi, " Ameena spoke up shyly for the first time, pointing at the threads glowing on her friend's open palm. "I--I don't understand, " stammered Ginger, still quite unable to take in this sudd...

The fingers of her left hand firmly entwined with Ameena's right hand, Deepti held her tightly-balled right hand out towards Ginger. To the watching airmen, it seemed curiously almost a gesture of supplication. Making sure that her extended hand was fully visible to everyone in the room, including t...

Deepti spoke, her voice shaking a little, "It is an important question that will change all our lives. It is not easy to ask or to answer. Please don't be offended." Ginger shook his head mutely. Algy sat up and regarded the girls with a fixed stare. Bertie moved his chair closer to Ginger in a prot...

Re: One Last Scene from "Goes Home" (Reposted)

Sliding an oblique glance at Biggles, Ginger had the oddest feeling that his chief was amused and a little bemused at the same time, and not quite sure of the way the situation was playing out. It merely confirmed Ginger's own misery. Life stretched before him like a dreary vista of domesticity, com...
