Love In Kangra Valley


Walking through the roads in Kangra Valley, India, Liz took in the atmosphere. Over the past few days of her holiday she had been intrigued by the history and the sights in this area of the country. She was saddened that her holiday was coming to a close. Mostly because of the Indian heartthrob she had met on her first day here by the pool. His name was Arjun and he made her believe in love at first sight.

She turned the corner and joined Arjun for a coffee. They held hands and an ache fluttered in Liz’s heart but his life was here and hers was back in England. A thought struck her:

I could stay here. Here with him. We could have our life together.

She shut her lips, enjoyed the last moments they would share together before she went home to marry Tom. Life would go on.

    Oh my goodness, what a temptation he must have been to have such an effect! But in the end, she resisted and returned to her “normal” life. I wonder if she’ll always wonder…

    You give us a good insight into Liz’s thinking and emotions. You’ve written her as a startlingly level-headed person. I’m sure she’ll be happy with Tom – but how much joy will she experience, and how much will that matter to her?
    I like that story because it’s not just a love story, it’s also a concise character study.
