My story published! :)

I had written this story a couple of years back, and it got published in Chowk today! My roommate introduced me to this, and his story got published last month.

We are family

‘Yes, I shall go and arrange for the papers in my office.’ The doctor retreated with the nurse from the room. There was a huge gush of hospital noise when the door opened and the pneumatic door closer slowly put the door back to its original position.

A child was crying somewhere. An injection, perhaps.
Trays with surgical instruments were being handled. Metal on metal.
Someone was calling for the janitor. Clear intercom system.
Lots of footsteps. Nurses with high heels.

The door closed and the room was once again filled with a low hum. If one strained the ear, the London November rain could be heard splattering on the stone benches in the lawn outside the room. Curtains were drawn, contributing more to the loud silence in the room. The periodic short and sharp beep of the instruments in the room made the silence even louder. It showed signs of life in the room.

    Thanks a lot! And more thanks for including it in your latest post! I really appreciate it!
    I wrote this story over 3 years back for a creative writing course – and I have never been able to come up with something this intense. I do write small skits and plots – but they all end up in my theater club. I still try to think of story lines – some day, hopefully I will come up with one again!
    My brother is capable of coming up with terrific stories – I don’t know if he still does…
    And I noticed that Chowk definitely has a lot more activity than it used to!
