Unlocking the secrets behind a seductive smile

By | March 2, 2018

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.

      Yes Ami, exactly that is the point.. and on a long run, we reach a state where we couldn’t even act any more..

    Hmm very seductive Akhila and yes definitely there are times we get totally fed up with masks and masks and feel like being our true self. Great way of writing.

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

            Oh.. but I wonder as I cannot see that.wordpress.com extension in your web link..

          3. Infinite Living

            Oh …now I know what you mean …I have actually purchased a domain from godaddy and directed there from wordpress.

          4. Akhila Post author

            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…

      Yes..in stage we only expect them to act.. then mask is a part of them actually.. but its not the real life

    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!

    Yes masking causes exhaustion. In case the mask is worn before the world that becomes the “me” factor forever even after realising it was a mask. Sometimes it can never be removed of the fear of losing the earned reputation. Our body and our soul loses the joy and touch of the realsitic self. A very out of the box thing and how it lead me to ponder about myself for a minute. Specially how the title itself can be interpreted in various ways, is amazing. I had a rememberence of Shakesphere book-tales of Shakesphere and it greatly deals with masked faces in with real masks and how it spoils things in the between and the end.
    Thankyou for sharing!

      Last lines as the advice from the mask [ assume mask is talking to you, “I” in the post is mask].
      The girl’s “hot look” was all due to the mask. She was pretending behind the mask

        Oh i read it again from that perspective. Wow its really amazing and beautifully penned out. Had such deep meaning. Lovely. But many would love seeing the mask which would force the person to wear the mask. If true beauty was appreciated then the need of mask would never arise. Beautiful piece Akhila….
