Sometimes, or maybe all the time, the imaginary world is a lot richer than ours. We add all the color we want, all the details we want, and we make everybody do and say the right thing at the right time. Wait a minute that sounds too boring!

I’m still starting out with it so bear with me. In this page some of the things I’m sharing are complete some aren’t. Those that aren’t present profiles of characters viewed from specific scenes, shots of their lives. If you think some of the characters can be further developed into people you’d like to know more about, then I’m on the right track. So let me know. Your feedback, good or bad, will always be appreciated.

But she never relented to Laila’s pleads to stay with her in bed. She would insist that Laila had to put herself back to sleep, and if Laila persisted, she would lose her temper and slam the door, leaving her alone in the room with only the faint light of her small night lamp.
And for six years it continued like this. No mirror notes, no soft breeze ruffling his hair in a room of closed windows, no broken china and no midnight footsteps in the attic could transmit Carla’s emotions to Frank.
Laila had no tolerance for her silence, it made her feel observed, watched. There was a terrified innocence in the little girl’s eyes that threw Laila’s brutality right back at her.
