The Sleeping Beauty

A fairy tale.


His name was Wish. I suppose it was an acronym for Vishvanath, the name of God in Indian pantheon. Though I will never find it out, because Wish is no more. We - a few of us who had the privilege to know him - will miss him, but since we don't know if he passed over for sure, we saved the mourning. It was fulfil to have known him anyway. All that is known is, Wish just vanished. Fell off the earth, it would seem. That is why I venture to recount all that I know about the man, his mysterious ways, his life. It was a beautiful, lonely life, lost against a beautiful girl.
