Unlocking the secrets behind a seductive smile

She took a long hot bath. The heavenly smell of rose water spread all across the apartment. I was impatiently waiting for her in front of the dressing table. I want her to be wholly mine before she puts on any powder and paint.  Even the carpet was waiting for her to come out, to feel her wet foot.

Finally, the princess opened the door slowly. She was damn beautiful in that smooth silky gown. She smiled at me. Oh, how can I resist her seductive looks? Still I just pretended as if I was looking out of the balcony window.. She came to me with that naughty smile, hugged me so tightly, that I couldn’t even breathe. Then…

…..

Then she put me on her face. She wanted me with her always. No one can take their eyes off her ‘masked’ face. Yes, I am the MASK who protects you from being hurt or rejected.

Let me say Honesty is the best policy, which is true. But what if someone feels exhausted living in an authentic way.. Ah! , is that possible..? Maybe that’s why people start to wear me to hide their identity and finally forget who they were actually. I am the sign of your weakness. Think twice before you put me on

    Sometimes we put on so many different masks on different times that we tend to forget our original self.

            No I did not. I am using their basic plan since the beginning. Is their something specific you would like to know regarding that?

            Ok..so you started in a purchased domain only.. so you haven’t done that exporting thing

    But, on stage, masks give the people authenticity of characters…where, unlocking the secret kills its pleasure and spoils its authenticity…

    Just a brilliant concept,
    We have all adapted and put this mask on to stay away from our weaknesses and the world’s rejection.

    Ha, a nice twist to that ‘beauty’ story, Akhi! I had to read and re-read it ( dim-witted me! ;))
    We all wear it at some point in time. Are they the experiences in life that force you to put up the mask or is it simply the comfort of being an enigma to the ruthless world?
    I see a little child, so very carefree with emotions, thoughts, and ideas flowing freely. But they grow and pick it up too and that is when the charm and beauty of childhood simply vanishes!

        Because we teach him to be just that! Wearing is mask is what is to increase the person’s social quotient and appear just right before society!
